The guy shoots a target with his .50 cal sniper, it richocheted back, richocheted off the ground 10 feet in front of him, and hits his ear protection. No physical damage done to him.

old, but still fun to watch!

It is pretty old, but I saw it recently for the first time, I would be scared out of my mind if that happened. I would honestly probably faint. (Or at least freak out after I realize what happened.)

when i shot competition air rifle in high school, i had a pellet fly off the wall (10m away) and cut open my nose. if it had been an inch further up and a little to the side, it would've landed in my eye.

What kills me is how you can hear the bullet hit the iron and come back. The whistle of the bullet is scary.

That's the last one of them we're doin!

that happened slower than I thought it would.

well, think of the distance. its a .50 cal, so its probably a good couple hundred yards away, and the metal target absorbed a lot of the impact. actually, i bet the target was too close, and thats why it bounced back so hard...

I mean, the round is supersonic up to a mile right? If it bounced back from that range wouldn't you figure it would have more force and velocity?

Well it did ricochet twice...
