    Russian roulette shock as wedding guest shoots himself in party trick gone wrong

    They're a wacky bunch.




    Russian roulette shock as wedding guest shoots himself in party trick gone wrong



    By Will Stewart

    A wedding guest was arrested by police after a man was seriously wounded playing 'Russian roulette' in front of a horrified bride and groom.
    The guest had been giving a toast when he pretended he was playing the deadly game with a gun that he claimed he thought was entirely empty.
    But then he gave the gun to another guest - and it turned out that he had been tragically wrong.
    The second guest also fired the handgun against his head - and dropped to ground as a rubber bullet exploded into his skull.
    The first guest can be seen standing in shock for a split second after the shot is fired.

    Candid camera: The groom's friend invites guests to play at a wedding in Astrakhan, Russia, by pulling out a gun and pulling the trigger without firing a shot

    The film of the incident has sparked horror after being posted on the web.
    The footage shows a friend of the groom propose a toast to the happy couple, pull out the weapon and pretend to shoot himself in the head.
    Nothing happens and the man, who later said he believed the gun was empty, claims it was a ‘childish prank’.
    Then he says: ‘Here - who wants to do it?’
    A voice is heard saying: ‘Russian Roulette, yes?’
    Another guest seizes the Russian-made IZH-79-9, points it at himself in front of dozens of guests.

    Foolhardy: A guest takes the gun from the man after he jokingly offered it

    Stop him: Another guest reaches out as victim points the gun to his temple

    As another guest appears to tries to stop him with an outreached arm coming into view, the man shoot a rubber bullet into his own head.
    The TV report shows scenes of panic as the man falls to the ground and someone shouts: ‘Are you mad?’
    The unnamed man's condition was later described as 'very poor' after doctors removed a bullet from his skull.
    He suffered brain damage and paralysis, according to Russian reports.
    The man who produced the hand gun at the Astrakhan wedding was arrested.
    He said: ‘I wanted to perform my party trick. I expected lots of applause after I did it and never guess someone would repeat it.’

    Too late: The man fires the gun and falls to the floor in front of shocked guests

    He insisted he had taken out all the bullets before doing his party 'trick'.
    The man is due to appear in court over the incident, say police.
    Russian Roulette was thought to have originated in Tsarist Russia when prison officials would force inmates to play while betting on who would die.
    Years later, during the Russian Revolution, Russian officers would play the game in front of comrades.
    Some were suicidal, others – perhaps like the victim in this case – just wanted to prove their bravery.

    This happened last december, but is bizarre enough to upload here now.

    On 12 December 38-year-old Chechen man came in as a guest at the wedding, which is celebrated in one of the Astrakhan cafe. Collecting the men present around the table, the guest took a gun (IZH-79-9), placed the muzzle against his head and pulled the trigger. He then reloaded and invited anyone to repeat the "deed in honor More.. of the groom".

    A young man, believing that the gun was empty, put the gun to his own temple and fired. As a result, he was seriously injured and was taken to hospital. He is still in serious condition.

    Idiot people and their guns, especially those who say "I'm an expert I've removed all the bullets", had an Argentenian say when I insist he don't waive his rifle "I'm an expert" just as the .22 flew past my head into the ceiling and through the roof, fuckin idiot

    They could have sang karaoke or played pass the parcel or somthing.

    At least it wasn't the groom who got the bullet.

    With an auto a bullet is already in the chamber, just needs the hammer cocking or you need to pull the slide back to load the bullet

    "SunTzu" how do you play 'russian roulette' with a automatic ? my thought, exactly.

    With an auto a bullet is already in the chamber, just needs the hammer cocking or you need to pull the slide back to load the bullet




    Not necessarily. You can load the weapon with the magazine and pull the hammer back. This will not in itself load a round into the barrel. One can then pull the tigger knowing that the barrel is empty. It would seem that this is what occurred in the first instance.
    Someone then cocked the weapon which slid a round into the chamber resulting in the injury when the trigger was pulled.

    Weapons in the hands of the sober can prove to be a fatal combination, but at a aweddng party????

    [QUOTE="Mr Lick"]Someone then cocked the weapon which slid a round into the chamber resulting in the injury when the trigger was pulled.

    Eh ya what, cocking is pulling the trigger back which does not load the bullet from the MAG INTO THE CHAMBER,

    You need to pull the slider back to load the weapon, as you do this the weapon is cocked, ready to fire , only applies to semi-automatic weapons,

    Revolvers , as you cock the trigger the weapon will fire .

    Yes, TSR2, the term 'make ready' by firearms instructors/range operators will necessitate the slide to be pulled back and then released so that a round can be loaded into the chamber. Although the term 'cock the weapon' was never used itself the term 'cocked weapon' (as used by yourself) was known as having a 'round in the chamber'. Mainly for safety reasons.

    the question is about playing russian roulette : it is played with a revolver and a single bullet. The barrel shifter is being turned fast, so that the 'player' has 1 in 6 probabilities to kill himself. That's the whole point of the game : showing your bravery but still having good odds to survive unscathed. With an automatic, the stats come to 1 on 1.


    so,
