The legend of Mall Ninja

imitation.jpg

If a fellow walked into a Glock fans’ forum thread and started a jargon-heavy discussion about how best to take multiple .338 shots to the back, what would you imagine his career to be? The top bodyguard for a developing nation’s ambassador, perhaps? A specialist document courier?

No.

I am the Sergeant of a three-man Rapid Tactical Force at one of America’s largest indoor retail shopping areas.”

This is his preferred loadout:

* 3) MP5K-PDW with red-dot sights;
* 2) G36 rifles using SS109 rounds;
* 3) Glock practical tacticles in .357 Sig
* 1) PSG-1 using Fed Gold Medal .308
* 1) Starlight scope for the PSG-1 in case we lose power in the building.
* 3) Glock 27 backup guns
* 3) Kahr P-9 holdouts

If you like gadgets that don’t kill people (because trolls kill people) this is the legendary thread for you.

“I am a Master of three martial arts including ninjitsu, which means I can wear the special boots to climb walls. … If you want to laugh at somebody, try laughing at the sheep out there who go to the mall unarmed trusting in me to stand guiard over their lives like a God.”

    Well, whatever it is, you have to admit that fierce dude looks SUPER BADASS on it. I wouldn’t even THINK of making a fart noise outside of Orange Julius if he was around.

  2. vintagecaveman says:

    It sounds like Dwight Schrute just started working at the mall.

  3. PurpleAlex says:

    You laugh, but if seeing Dawn of the Dead has taught me anything, these guys will be the first line of defence in a zombie apocalypse.
    Seriously though, that’s hilarious.

  4. MooseDesign says:

    @Fnarf: That, or someone has had a little fun Pshopping the Terminator’s face onto him. Look closely.

  5. Marshall says:

    #6 I agree. Hell, I wish someone would give Mall Ninja a blog and pay him to write it. I’d read it every-goddamn day.

  6. strider_mt2k says:

    That was disturbing-larious!

  7. Fnarf says:

    Unlike most topics, Marshall, one can NEVER get enough Mall Ninja.

    Love the black Segway.

    I tend to wear military-style boots, pants with a lot of pockets, and a bunch of useful junk on my belt, and every day before I walk outside I say a short prayer to Server that nobody mistakes me for one of these guys.

    After a while in the conversation, you get to:

    Also, Neonazi skinhead gangs are the most difficult thing we currently must deal with, it is not Chechin thzat we have to worry about, it is the Australian militants, and I dan’t care if they reed this, they allready know that we are onto them and we will not give up.

    Australian militants – wasn’t there a running joke in GTA about a war against Australia? Could this be in fact a publicity stunt for GTA?

    Sadly, I suspect that it’s a real person posting it. I find it very scary that chances are they have a gun, and even if it’s not one of the ones mentioned, it’s a gun too many.

    That is not a Segway. A Segway is an inferior vehicle for civilian sheep. A Segway doesn’t have three hardpoints and a spare fuel tank for a flame thrower. A Segway doesn’t generate enough torque to launch a novice user high enough to break through the atrium roof over the food court.

    What we have here is a Fragmaster Mobility Assist Mk. IV, only available to trained retail security personnel.

  12. skarbreeze says:

    This collection of posts by two so-called security guards are a veritable forum legend, and a very funny read. Take time over lunchbreak to really dig through it all :)

  13. demidan says:

    Well,,, that guy is lying his arse off! A H&K PSG-1 Costs between $12000-15000 dollars and the U.S.is restricted to importing 400 rifles a year. They are owned primarily by wealthy collectors not mall “Ninjas”.

  14. santulli says:

    I really wanted to comment on this, but I’m kinda at a loss for words. It’s just amazing that folks have this much time on their hands, both the mall ninjas and their gleeful antagonizers. The endless stream of bullshit makes for quite a read. One of my favorites:

    “it’s nice to know that I have your support in this dark cruel world.”

  15. Anonymous says:

    When the zombie apocalypse comes, you want to hole up in that guy’s mall with him.

  16. SC_Wolf says:

    Man, that Fragmaster Mobility Assist Mk. IV moves faster than Walt Flanagan’s Dog!

  17. bardfinn says:

    This story demands:

    Sweet,

    and

    Totally Flippin’ Out.

  18. MooseDesign says:

    Simultaneously terrifying and mesmerizing. But absolutely hilarious…
