Now, first of all, YES, it is an incredible feat (no pun intended...) that this man can do. Watch the video---get the ooo's and awwww's out of the way.... and then the How in the Hell does He do It-mood. I'll wait..........

Now, why did I put this in the Survival area. Do I really need to explain? Well for some yes.

Several years ago when I was at some police update training I saw the ever famous (at least in L.E) video of the FBI shootout in Fla with two bankrobbers.(mid-80's). I will try to find that video. Anyway, it ended up being a hell of a shootout just feet away from each other....

So, that video and the subsequent training I rec'd related to that video has always made me think... What the hell are you going to do when you are all messed up (wounded). What can you do,,, what can you train for etc.

I can tell you right now. If you were shot, laying down, arms out of commission.... you want this skill.

Look at his toes manipulate the weapon... amazing. But what it means is that Humans can do that with thier toes etc. Amazing. Just needs training etc.

It goes to show you that you are able to defend yourself in the worse of situations. You just have to think and use what you have at your disposal... The best weapon you have is your mind and body..... Master it.

I know easy to say but.... I know.... But, it is possible... as this man demostrates... There is always a chance...

PS.. Make sure you hear his comments to his buddies.....

Hey, Thanks for this great video. I have never even thought of shooting with my feet, and don't think I will start. I have practiced using each hand, and from different positions. I used to read the magazines while on duty at teletype sometimes that featured Ayoobs advice. I think that's how his name is spelled. The funny technique I read and used was the Charlie Chaplin walking technique to keep the shots level when walking while shooting.

Hope I never have to use a gun against anyone, but I will if pressed.

I hear ya, still not sure how he does it... other than sheer determination.

He must hav spent 100s of hours on the hood of that car and practicing.

At least someone like him has a Chance to defend themselves. Another thing.. I bet this guys feet are nothing to mess with either. Strong.

S&F Never seen anything like this in my life. That guy must really love shooting and it's quite apparent that he won't let anything stand in his way. I wonder what else he could accomplish if he set his mind to it? Awesome!
Too bad we don't have a toes-up icon, I'd have used it.

That guy has probably been armless for decades - the abilities he displays have take a LONG time for him to develop. Look at how his toes/feet have changed shape.

This isn't a "skill" you can develop unless you need to. Besides, if you lose both your arms, chances are you will bleed out unless there is a medic near by to stabilize you and transport you to a hospital. You won't be grabbing for guns with your feet.

Man you gotta have some gnarly toes from doing that, and it looks like the guy does.

Yeah it's a good video to show what humans are capable of, there are artists who use their feet and mouths that have more talent than the majority of us able bodied people.

But as a survival video? Not really, he wouldn't stand a chance against someone or something fighting back.

I beg to differ. I think the video shows he would have a chance. Maybe small but still a chance. Better than nothing.

As long as you can fight.... you have a chance.... (is my way of thinking...)

(PS: Awesome artwork on your avatar/mini-pics. I have enjoyed them over time) Peace

hey everyone, Im new here, first post, love the site, see myself reading alot here haha amazing I did not find this before

that is truly remarkable, but can be done never the less, what we dont realise in our day to day life is how amazing the human body and mind is....I have seen a woman with no hands take care of her child, and she changes it and does everything....its just training and you dont understand you can do it untill you have to....OR when you push yourself to the limit where you can see the results

guy lost his movement in his thumb...they take a part of a muscle from his elbow, and only parts of it and drag it down to his thumb, when you think about it there is no logic to this, and for weeks the brain is struggling to remap and figure out what has changed and bingo with training he learns how to use that muscle, so basically what we are seeing here is the amazing ability the human mind has to adopt to changes, sadly for the rest of us, we dont believe we can do it, until we have to.

Yeah I guess he'd have a better chance than other if their arms were disabled.

He wouldn't stand a chance against the black knight though!
