Russian wedding complete with alcohol and firearms...what could possibly go wrong?

A dumbass, drunken Russian guy (forgive the obvious redundancies) pulled a gun out of his waistband at his friend's wedding, put it to his head and pulled the trigger.  Click.  So he hands it to another guy.

"See, Yuri, gon ees not loaded.  Ha ha ha.  You try.  Ees fon."

Bang!  A rubber bullet lodges in the poor stooge's head and puts him in the hospital fighting for his life.  The 33 year old Chechan man who started this fuckery, swears the gun was empty when he handed it to the other drunken doofus.  (Travel slogan: Visit Chechnya! Where life is cheaper than a bottle of Vodka.)

This is the pose of a highly evolved Darwin Award contender.
Can't they just amuse themselves by doing 
that folded arm, bent knee, kick dance?

Without getting too deep into the weeds about how semi-automatic handguns function (the gun in the picture is clearly a 9 X 18 Makarov pistol) the Chechen dude's story is a load of horseshit.  The police are also suspicious, but I would imagine that getting a clear picture of the incident from the guests at a Russian wedding is not the easiest of tasks.

I like how the story notes that "Russian weddings are notoriously drunken and sometimes violent, with fist fights not uncommon."

Coming from a British reporter that's really saying something.  (See previous post.)
