Derp of the day: Come get the twins

derp of the day - the twins

This is why we can’t have nice things, gun people. I don’t even know where to start with this one, because everything about this for sale posting is a f***ing garbage fire of awful. Let’s start with the photo itself; because I mean come on. Which part of the brain is the one that generates the thought process responsible for a photo like this?

I mean can you imagine? “Hey, I’ve got a great idea on how to sell my POS Taurus 1911s, I’ll have my girlfriend lay face-down-ass-up with her legs spread like a $5 whore and toss these ugly guns on top of her big booty. That will surely tell people I am a serious seller with a good bargain!”

Then of course there’s the structure of the for sale ad itself. When it got to “your own action hero” and “akimbo” I knew that this guy was a truly serious shooter. “Yes,” I thought, “this is a man whose custom Taurus 1911s I must have.” Because you know that his kitchen table action job is on the same par as having a gun built by Hilton Yam, right? This is someone who knows his stuff.

Lastly, there are the guns themselves. I probably don’t need to say this, but a Taurus 1911 by itself is automatically a ball of suck and fail. You know how we like to say “two is one and one is none?” With a Taurus 1911, two isn’t one, it’s just double the garbage. It’s like finding a rotting bag of meat in your fridge and deciding that the best solution is to get ANOTHER bag of rotting meat so you can have two of the same thing.

So, to the guy who posted this: you’re a terrible person. You’re terrible because you objectify women, because you’re an idiot, and because seriously? Akimbo Taurus 1911s? Go to your room.

  1. I have been outspoken about the choice of using models to sell guns. That being said, this guy is not objectifying women. Assuming the girl in question was not incapacitated in some way, she decided to objectify herself. Saying that one woman objectifying herself objectifies all women removes her agency from the equation and assumes that women are some sort of collective entity. It would be like saying this guy represents all 1911 owners. We need to get over this collectivist BS. It’s a tasteless thing on the internet, not a broad social commentary.

    Also Taurus 1911s work fine once they have had hundreds of a dollars of tuning performed by a master gunsmith. which is not that much different form any other 1911. 😛

    That last part was a joke. I was just teasing. Let’s not get bent out of shape over it.

      1. I am not a SJW, if anything I am the opposite. A SJW would have said that by viewing this image you are actively supporting the rape of all women everywhere. I am an egalitarian, which means that I accept that women are people, and thus often do silly and perplexing things for which they should be held accountable.

        Blaming the guy for being tacky is fine but we shouldn’t ignore the woman’s role in the equation because that would be objectifying her. She is a person, a silly tasteless person, but still a person.

  2. Yet… His ploy clearly worked to get your and others attention. For the wrong reasons, yea, but to you. To someone else, who doesn’t know how bad Taurus is, they just see two guns they can have for little money.

    If this hadn’t had an ass in the picture, you wouldn’t have thought twice about it.

  3. Horry Clyst I’m getting old!! I took me reading Caleb’s comments before I saw the ass.

  5. Ew ew ew ew. If my boyfriend had asked me to pose like that, I would be looking for a new boyfriend….

    1. Right. I know that my girlfriend would show the door if I even suggested it with any seriousness. She’s very forgiving though, she’d probably say something like, “come back when you’ve stopped being a moron.”

  6. Social Justice Warrior. Typically a privileged person from a wealthy first world country attending a university, who habitually complains about insignificant problems while ignoring significant ones.

    The Don Quixote’s of the modern social diatribe, SJW’s make a mission out of slaying imaginary dragons in places where they are not invited. If a man is taking up too much space on a train, they are there to complain, if a woman is being criticized for anything she does, they are there to scream patriarchy, if any minority is even the slightest bit inconvenienced, they are there to scream racism.

    Note that no arguments will ever be made beyond epithets. Look for key words, such as “structures,” “problematic,” or “social construct”.

    Should you encounter an SJW, do not engage them in conversation. No matter what you do or say, they will find a reason to call you a Nazi.

  7. Wow! just wow! Congratulations you two! You have double handedly managed to f#ck over basically anything held decent.

    Male part: good job pointing what looks to be not one but two hot weapons (with safety off) at your girl’s head. I really don’t even know where to start with the obvious crap equipment… And I’m willing to bet amateur don’t work gunsmithing.

    Female part: great job looking trashy and replaceable.

    God I hope they don’t breed!

  8. “Which part of the brain is the one that generates the thought process responsible for a photo like this?”

    Gosh it all, Caleb. Precisely which demographic do think is pitching this grand deal, Monsieur? I mean, what the double-hockey sticks?!?

  9. Meh. Probably sold them too on the condition his girlfriend licked the grips prior.

    The funny thing is that this is not even close to being the dumbest shit I heard, saw, or read today. Gun humor is generally weak, gun stupidity is too.

    1. I agree. Over 2,000 rounds thru mine, and except for wearing out the extractor (which Taurus repaired at no charge AND paid shipping both ways) I have absolutely no problems with.
