The city-dwellers over at Vice’s “Munchies” blog may scoff at the idea and it probably isn’t the best way to care for a rifle — but watching people cook bacon with muzzle heat is pretty darn entertaining.
Videos of firearm/bacon enthusiasts getting culinary during target sessions are racking up views on YouTube.
A Vice editor discovered the trend last week and provided this condescending commentary:
Ameri-cuhhhh! True patriots say the Pledge of Allegiance every morning, eat a giant meal of bacon and sausage, and hit the gun range for a quick session of target practice. (The best may even make time for a rousing performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” a couple of cheeseburgers made with domestic beef, a few more hours of gun-shootin’, and a dinner of Angus steak.)
But some highly resourceful ‘Mericans have decided to combine their loves of meat and firearms by inventing a method of cooking bacon … via gun.
Sure, there’s no practical reason to cook bacon on a gun. But if Vice’s writer has a problem with pork and guns, there are options. You know, for those who don’t like all that freedom stuff.
Via Al Arabiya:
[The] United States is the first country in the world in the ranking of guns per 100 residents. Of the Middle East nations, Yemen is the third country, Saudi Arabia is 6th, Iraq is 7th, Oman is 17th, Bahrain and Kuwait share the 18th place, United Arab Emirates is 24th, Qatar is 31st, Iran is 79th and Egypt is 115th. Tunisia is the 178th nation and it’s said that the imposition of strict rules of gun ownership by the deposed President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali had immensely restricted the civilians’ access to arms. The 2007 survey reported that only 9,000 Tunisian citizens possessed guns.
As for the rest of the red-blooded, meat eating, bitter clinging ‘Mericans out there, enjoy:
