Kiwi cop goes viral for using 'finger guns' during armed stand off

The Facebook page, 'Cop Humour Australia', which shares pics and vids of police doing crack up stuff, has posted a throwback photo of a Kiwi cop doing a bit of improv.

There's not a lot of context to the photo, but we do know it surfaced a wee while ago and has just been brought back up from the archives.

Let's be honest - the photo could have captured something different happening, but it looks a hell of a lot like he's improvising on his lack of (real) gun - and it's a damn funny thought.
