This is hilarious! This morning I took my wife to the airport and before she boarded we were watching MSNBC on the tv they had in the waiting area. One of the stories showed some Taliban members marching through the streets shooting AK's in the air. Well the camera just happened to be focused on one guy firing his gun when all of a sudden a buch of smoke came out of the reciever and the floor plate on his mag blew off sending rounds every where. They guy panicked and quickly tried to grab the flying shells. I busted out in laughter. Unfortunately no one else shared in the humor. Scott

Too bad we weren't there to share the humor too. What I really want to see is the protesters run for cover when the bullets they shot start raining down on them...

Now that would be entertaining. Or maybe have one guy not get his gun up in the air high enough and take out the guy in front of him. [:)]

[:)] After I saw the smoke pouring from the chamber I thought for sure I would see a hand minus fingers. No such luck

Arent there documented cases of bullets coming back down to the ground and killing people?

I always wondered this myself. I have some tracers that I would love to shoot up high, but fear nailing someone.

LOL I saw that too

A bullet returning from a straight up shot, would only hit terminal velocity coming back down, which would, in fact, be MUCH LESS than the muzzle velocity. Would probably still hurt like hell if it came down on your head!! M@

I saw the same footage and had exactly the same reaction. My wife looked at me like I had two heads. After I stopped laughing and explained to her what I was laughing at, she said "Only YOU would understand what you saw - and think it was funny!" But it WAS hilarious!
