Check out the balloons held in the hand, crotch and mouth at the end!

Good marksmanship, horrendous judgement.

Total disregard for firearms safety. Good shooting. But a horrible example of good shooting.
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

I agree. I wouldn't call it good shooting if it is a total disregard for firearms safety.

I think some of you are a bit short-sighted if these are GGK Commandos.

Its akin to saying to telling the best pilots in the world, "Gee, you guys shouldn't be flying those stunts."
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Isn't it possible that the ammunition used for the trick shots involving the assistant was something non-standard (e.g. reduced load)? And, for that matter, that the assistant is wearing some form of (e.g. kevlar) protection under his clothes, especially near his crotch? I also noticed that the assistant had his back turned for some of the shots when the targets were near his eyes.

I have no idea if this is true but I'm thinking at the distance involved, with reduced loads, and body armor, that perhaps the shots are not quite as dangerous as they appear.

Oh sure. Next you'll be trying to convince us that magicians don't really catch bullets.

Of course, David Blaine caught a bullet and lived to tell about it.

I hope your not serious. People have been killed or seriously injured from a blank fired from a gun. Even if they are squib loads, which I doubt it violates just about every firearms rule one can imagine. That is if one is familiar with firearm safety. Jerks like this give firearms owners and shooters a bad image. These are far from professionals if that is how they handle their firearms. Next thing you know you will have some yahoos trying this. Well I saw it on the internet. That should fly as an excuse. Does the term reckless endangerment come to mind? Or how about stupidity?

Oh, who cares?

So the dudes are playing with guns and that makes them extra dumb and irresponsible?

Probably half a billion people a day have sex without condoms, which is only less dumb because death comes slower.

Lighten up, folks. Let idiots be idiots. Are idiots with guns any stupider than idiots without condoms?

Sure, now you're going to report William Tell to child protection services?

If it wasn't for your dumb parents where would you be?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Good point, Tommy.

But maybe I'd feel better about myself if my father and mother were royal commandos from Malaysia. As it was, they were just poor fundamental Baptists from Sweetwater Texas.
