Mythbusters replicated this, as have several videos on youtube. Neat. D=

Shooting at ice that you’re standing on? What could possibly go wrong?


#4

THICK ice.

You realize people take axes to go ice fishing, right?


#5

Yeah, but you don’t take an axe to a gunfight.


#6

i agree. the ice may be thick, but surely these are a couple of Darwin Award contenders, right?

this is what, the third time or the fourth time BB has posted this video?


#9

they really really REALLY like it!

My RSS reader presented me with this amusing image when I tapped on this article…

I should certainly hope it doesn’t!

Well I still contend, if the ice is thin enough for a bullet to punch through it, it will just punch a hole through it. Like if you throw a big rock on to the ice.

It wouldn’t turn into a Loony Tunes cartoon where the ice would start cracking all over the place because you made a small hole in the ice. If the ice was TOO thin, your weight would break it before you got out to shoot the ice.

I think they’ve at least linked to DIFFERENT videos of a bullet spinning in ice once or twice.

Hard to tell, all those armed white people look alike to me. :wink:
