    Ive seen that one before. It deffinately makes you think about what your shooting at, and sort the possibilities out before hand. Ive passed up on some rock chucks and sagerats for lack of a good shot without a riccochet. I just moved to a better angle and smoked em. Anyhow its always a good reminder to see what can happen when you dont pay attention.

    That's about 2 inches from a big problem! You can hear that thing coming in.

    Not amazing at all.....when you've got a DUMB ASS behind the trigger!!

    Shooting steel is OK....from LR; not what the DA did!!

    i agree with sharpsman. Dont shoot steel from a short range, and putting it at an upwards angle... how stupid can you be.

    It's not like they didn't have the opportunity to put it further way, if you look to the left in the video you see a long canyon and another mountain at the end. Your shooting a 50cal, put the damn target out of bow range.

    Seen that one before too. Good thing he had the ear muffs on or it may have went right by him and hit the person behind him.
