    Yeah, that could have been so much worse. It looked like it bounced up just in front of him. I wonder if the bullet went into his head or just grazed it. He did do a good job with the rifle though. Rather than throw it down, he set it down in the chair before getting up.

    I refer to those type of incidents as "The Grim Reaper wants him REAL bad". That or a warning from Darwin.

    That does look like a dirt bank, or maybe shale. Maintained as well. Probably got a 1 in a million ding on a piece of steel that got buried.

    Firearm Safety Rule #8 "Never shoot at a rock or a hard flat surface (water)"

    I would use that vid in my safety class but the guy said the "F" word. That was close.

    This has been posted before. For some reason I seem to remember that it really is a hoax. I think these guys have other videos out there with firearm mishaps.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    +1 on that, my SGM and me both looked at this and threw the BS flag.

    I think they also did a video with a VERY skinny girl firing a 50 cal Desert Eagle. In the clip she supposedly fire the weapon and the recoil smacks the weapon back in her face. BUT there's no flash or smoke from the muzzle.

    I think that was proven to be faked.

    The same guys faked similar other close calls

    I was hit once in the chest by a .44 magnum ricochet. I was shooting bowling pins and I see something tumbling in an arch coming back at me, then WHACK! Right in the chest. It scared the crap out of me more than it hurt. I guess in almost 40 years of shooting it had to happen at least once.

    Here's another ricochet video. This guy was shooting a .50cal rifle at a metal target.
