Man Fires Gun At Himself Underwater For Science.

A lot of dangerous, some may say ‘fool-hardy’ experiments have been conducted in the name of science and the one above could easily be included into that bracket.

Physicist Andreas Wahl bravely demonstrates how water slows the trajectory of a bullet down, once fired from a submerged gun, by standing directly in front of it. The science behind this experiment is explained succinctly in the video’s description:

It’s harder to create movement in water than in air, because water molecules are closer together than air molecules. To show the difference in resistance, physicist Andreas Wahl puts himself in front of a weapon submerged in water and fires it – on himself.

The Henry U.S. Survival AR – 7 Rifle.

We’ve all been there, out in the woods casually minding our own business when right out of the blue mother f**cking nature has to go and spoil everything with her shitty birds and noisy deer. That kind of annoying disturbance to your afternoon woodland stroll can now be a thing of the past with the Henry U.S. Survival AR – 7 Rifle.

This slick piece of mangineering is lightweight, highly portable and comes with a super sensible water proof casing which doubles up as the arse of the gun…or stock, if you prefer. This┬ásemi-automatic firearm sports an 8-round .22 LR magazine and is coated in Teflon for weatherproofing. Another unique feature of this rifle, as demonstrated in the picture above, is the easy way it can be camouflaged to blend in with it’s surroundings. By just using some simple blades of grass, rocks and branches the rifle almost vanishes from sight.

A Video Of Epic Gun Fails For 2011.

Ah it’s that time of year again when some generous Internet obsessed soul takes the time to edit together a montage of all the best accidents and major spills recorded on YouTube throughout the past twelve months.

Levelling up in the epic fail category are this lot. Whose general stupidity coupled with loaded weapons secure their place on the Darwin Awards shortlist.

This is why we use cutlasses, a whole lot safer and you don’t need to wear firmly supported trousers when when wielding one.
