Have you ever seen something that is both hilarious (in a weird way) and terrifying at the same time?
If not, we have a video for you today that may just well scare the living daylights out of you (hat tip to here for the lead). But it may also make you laugh.
Why these two specific reactions? Because what these guys (of course, it’s guys. Would women be this insane?) do the most foolish thing that you may ever see anyone do when doing target practice. Frankly, I couldn’t believe my eyes that someone was actually doing this. It made William Tell’s shot at an apple look mild in many ways (If you don’t remember William Tell, this story was the one about the guy who shoots an apple off of the head of another man with a crossbow).
And you’re probably wondering about the humor part. To be fair, that just may be my dry sense of humor who laughs at the nonchalant manner of one of the guys in the video as he reacts (or doesn’t) to what happens. He acts so bored in such a scary situation that I couldn’t help but laugh. Maybe you will, too.
Here’s the video for your viewing pleasure:
Isn’t that absolutely insane? Who would actually hold targets for other people to shoot out of your hands using anything more than Nerf darts, much less live ammunition? And, then, the guy acts bored, like it’s no big deal!
I’d never want to be put in that situation and, frankly, I wouldn’t be even remotely calm about it if I were in that situation. No, not even if I had several shots of hard liquor.
This was the craziest thing that I saw all day, and I suspect that it’s the craziest thing that you’ve seen, too.
The last thing that I’ll say about this is, please, for the love of God, don’t ever do this. It’s nuts.
Think about this: we crawled under barbed wire while the 50 Cal shot 10 inches above the wire!
I showed my soldiers how the pistol functions: push on the barrel, a round in the chamber, and activate the trigger. It does not fire. Release, fire! Did that at least 200 times. Self defense in case someone takes your hand weapon!
There are many other ways to make people be aware of the possibilities of the weapons, for your protection and that of others!
To hold a target forces a person to control breathing. If you are with people you trust with your life, ( military SFs for example) you better trust your partners with your life, and they with you!
this is evolution in action , only the dumb survive
