Firing a .50 cal in a quarry. Who'd have thought? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

At least give him credit for attempting to remove himself from the gene pool.

Must try harder. Next time use a six inch naval gun.

Wow. That guy was a meathead. Sharp as a marble. His friends, too. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

There was another one with a guy on a range with a .50 cal hand gun, and the recoil sends the weapon sailing over his head. Another Darwin Award candidate.

That HAD to hurt. Once when I was young and stoopid, I got hit in the leg with a ricochet from a .22 cal rifle a friend and I were using to ventilate an old bathtub. A mosquito bite, by comparison.

I just watched that again...my god!! You can hear that huge chunk of lead whizzing in. If it hadn't hit the ground immediately in front of him then it probably would have taken his head off.

Then again I suppose that would have altered the trajectory and it might have missed him altogether.

But nothing can alter that fact these guys are LOOPS!!

Loops 'n Guns. Scary.

too late-

really like the drunk guys handing the .50cal to the drunk woman so they could get a good laugh...I was hoping the recoil would've slammed the gun into the idiots head that was standing behind her - now that would have been perfect...nothing goes better with shootin' irons then a head full of sour mash yeehaw

how's the fact that he's shooting it in a quarry stupid? My time in the army, the firing ranges had high turf walls on 3 sides like in that quarry. Sure he is using an excessively large gun but he is shooting atleast 200 or 300 yards. How likely is it that the bullet will come directly back at you? not very. I've been shooting guns since I was 10 years old (not big ones when I was 12).

However, they do say they were shooting iron, most likely a plate. which is pretty damn stupid, what's wrong with beer cans?

as for helping the anti-gun lobby, it doesn't at all, it just proves that accidents can happen. There are dumber drivers causing a lot of fatal car accidents every day but you don't see anyone pushing for a ban to the horseless carriage.

however, you should never need a weapon that large, I've never seen a deer driving a car or inside a metal protective case that would require such a large caliber gun.

Actually, they were, at least in my mind, responsible for target practicing in a quarry. It's safe for everyone else. If I understand correctly, he was shooting at a steel target. The stupid part was in the chosen angles. He shouldn't have been shooting at 90 degrees from the surface of the steel.

I don't own a .50 Cal, and don't plan to, owning a .50 caliber is the irresponsible thing here. I only own guns that I hunt with, as I said, there is no need to kill a deer or bear with a .50 cal, There are much smaller weapons that do the trick just fine.

P.S. my teeth aren't that bad, and everyone knows that when the bottle is empty, you chuck it and get a new one.

there was nothing wrong with the location thay were shooting in. that incident could have happed just about any wear. just a freak accident. also that musta been one very hard target thay were shooting. i have seen a 50cal BMG shoot threw a 318 small block v8. just one of those things. no diff than if you went swiming and got a cramp and nearly drown. shi* happens. only thing i would have done deffernt is to put a soft target down range as a trap to catch the bullet. a pile of sand,clay,hay or even wood to keep the round from hitting rock.

I have had friends who are gun owners do stupid things like:

1. Wave a handgun around
2. Hand me a handgun barrel first
3. Turn towards me at a Las Vegas range pointing an MP5 WITH THE TRIGGER GROUP IN FULL AUTO, the range officer promptly secured the weapon http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif
4. Go out to a friends cabin, have a few drinks with his bud, then while drunk try a bit of target shooting, then tell me about it.
5. And Finally, look down the barrel of a pistol.

Seen this video, in many media types, for about 6 months now. The returm projectile is most probably a fragment from the target or bullet. We have to assume a 50 cal, but another cal firearms could be involved as many use the same barrel brake sytem as shown,

The frag came back (luckily) sub-sonic as the viewer can hear the whine of the unstabalized fragment coming back uprange. Additionally the impact energy to the shooter was lowered due to at least one bounce in the soil prior to the impact. Also wearing the ear protection probably helped him avoid a nasty headwound. If that was a 50 cal BMG projectile, or even a portion of one, returning at near Mach speed, the outcome would have been very different, and very serious.

BTW, firing a 50BMG rifle at the "short" range they were firing, especially at steel targets, is asking for the sort of trouble that they experienced.

so your friends are dumb, that doesn't mean that they are entirely unsafe.

just a question: how much do you think it will cost to test, train, take more tests, take more refresher courses at regular intervals? It cost me $300 just to get my hunting license, that's not even a license to hold a gun, that's just a licence to get my firearms licence when I take more courses after atleast 2 more years of apprenticeship hunting.

That's an awful lot of money when you're young. And yes, I did say young. You must teach children at a young age that guns are not toys and that life is not like computer games, guns cause real damage. It takes experience for a person to respect a firearm, it is best to start them at a young age so that they don't have mishaps like is so commonly seen on youtube.

Do you know how government bureaucracy works? in order to make tests for a person to write so they can get their licence, they hire a outside firm to do it, and they'll just charge a couple million to write 4 or 5 different 20 question simple tests. Then the government has to train and certify umpteen number of trainers for the courses, in a country like the USA with 300 million people, that requires a lot of trainers and a lot of money. Then you got to have another firm create more tests, a couple million more down the tubes, and then you hire another company to design and produce the ID cards that say you can own a firearm. Then you gotta create the government department that will handle the processing of all these licenses, pay some pretty high wages (remember, this is government) and then blah blah blah the list is endless. In the end, you'll end up a couple hundred million, probably even more than a billion dollars down the toilet, and all there is to show for it is each person now has a nice card to carry around in their wallet.

don't get me wrong, I am all for the training of people, but the retraining is just dumb. people will always do stupid things, it's not like picking up a rifle for the first time in a long time you'll all of a sudden think it shoots out the stock of the rifle rather than the muzzle.

don't even get me started on this ludicrous gun registration scheme in Canada... that would take weeks to type all the dumb things that are wrong with it. Why would anyone commit an act of violence with a traceable firearm that the police know is registered to them? they don't, there was nearly 100 gun murders in Toronto last year, not one of them was preventable or solvable by looking at the gun registry, only stolen or smuggled guns are used in gun crimes.

geez, it's weird how easily people misconstrue your posts.

when I was 14 I took my hunting licence test. in order to do it, you had to safely cross an imaginary fence, with an imaginary rifle in your hands. I am in support of this. but in the situation your friends were not in a test situation and were not likely thinking of where they were pointing it. In my hunting party we have a young guy that we have to remind to always know where his gun is aiming, with practise they will understand it. But in the situation you described where he had just finished shooting, he was probably thinking about what a great shot he had made, not the position of the gun.

FYI, if he were to hand you the gun butt first as you state he should, then it would be pointing at himself, which is also not safe. The best way to hand it to a person is safety on, breach open, pointed straight vertical. some people say you can aim it down at the ground, but if you're in the army you will get disciplined for that, as mud and debris can then get into the barrel, creating another bad and potentially unsafe situation.

I hope this pisses off the anti-gun lobby around here.

I would have posted it sooner, but I just got back from the hospital from when I posed the Glock and its supposedly foolproof safety failed, resulting in a discharge that went out the window killing three neighbors, two pets, then richocheted back inside and hit the trigger of the Bushmaster, resulting in another ricochet that killed my X-52 and my copy of IL2:1946 and then lodged in my leg.

that video of the DA cop shooting him self is BS IMO. eather that or he missed his leg fot completly. a S&W 40 cal fireing into his leg or foot would have caused alot of bleeding to the point he would not have limped for a few secounds and the went on teaching the class. notice the officer in uniform standing on the right of the screen made no move to help or give closer inspection of said wound. all put on for the sake of the kids imho

If you try frame-by-frame with the video, it looks like the bullet hit that boulder... Well, I'm sure that there is going to be a return trip of sorts.

If it was the boulder he was aiming for, Yes, he is a Fidiot, and lucky it only rubbed his earpiece.

Not so much anti-gun lobby, but I jumped on this to show my kids, how dangerous guns can be. It shocked them - GOOD. It takes an 'gun-uneducated' moron to create a statistic, and the more guns there are...you know http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Well since my post is in your screen grab I'm assuming you're thinking I'm anti-gun. I am pro-gun, anti-stupid.

Like I said I want to own a firearm at some point, I just don't feel a strong enough urge to spend time and money at this time.

Friend of mine has a bushmaster too.

Possible, but listen to the video. It sounds like his target, or at least whatever he hit, was steel.

there was nothing wrong with the location thay were shooting in. that incident could have happed just about any wear. just a freak accident. also that musta been one very hard target thay were shooting. i have seen a 50cal BMG shoot threw a 318 small block v8. just one of those things. no diff than if you went swiming and got a cramp and nearly drown. shi* happens. only thing i would have done deffernt is to put a soft target down range as a trap to catch the bullet. a pile of sand,clay,hay or even wood to keep the round from hitting rock. </div></BLOCKQUOTE> http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/agreepost.gifExactly what I was going to post!! There is nothing extraordinary about that location for shooting really. It would normally be chosen as ideal by any knowledgeable gun enthusiast. It has all the prerequisites for shooting .50 BMG that I would look for myself. There is a nice hill in the background which looks to be ideal for shooting any rifle. This is to prevent inadvertant long range bullet travel, thereby reducing the likelihood of said bullet killing someone in the distance. The ricochet was truly a one in a million thing!! Pure happenstance if you will. A ricochet is always a possibility when firing arms. So is slipping in the bathtub and accidentally killing yourself by hitting your head on something.

At a range I belonged to, most of us sighted in 100 to 150 yards, then we had a steel plate hanging on chains at 300, this was to find hold over, we used the plate to know if we had a hit, too hard to see with a feld scope, the chain took care this kind of accident.

It might have been 500 yard, long time ago, when gun handleing was an art.
