Unless you have served in the military, or the armed police (excluding anyone who already owns a gun) then you have probably never fired a weapon.
Or even seen a real one.
You might have seen loads of action movies where highly paid actors are firing off blank-firing guns, or you might have played Call of Duty so much that you fancy yourself as a bit of an ‘amateur armourer’.
But an ‘advert’ posted by the Derbyshire Armed Response Unit (UK) inviting serving officers to apply to become a firearms officer has caused a light-hearted stir after it highlighted all of the essential functions of, in this case, a handgun.
The diagram refers to the sight as a ‘looky aimy thingy’. The barrel is called a ‘pew pew tube’, and the muzzle flash is referred to as ‘magic light’.
Meanwhile, the round of ammunition exiting the barrel is called a ‘fast pew’, the trigger is called a ‘clicky bang button’, the magazine is called a ‘pew holder’, and a round of ammo is called a ‘pew’.
Also with the diagram is a picture of a male holding a ‘finger gun’.
The caption with the tweet (@DerbyshireARU) reads:
‘The internal recruitment process to join our team has commenced, applications are now open, familiarisation days being held and assessments for the initial weapons course to be held later this year followed by the tactics course in early 2021.
‘Good luck to potential recruits’.
At least any potential recruits will now have a thorough understanding of the various essential components of a gun!
