I love it when Mythbusters conducts firearm related tests.

Yup. They do have some good episodes. But there have been a few that just downright offended me. IE Grenade and guts episode. But I talked to Alan and he explained why it was done that way and it made sense.

Haha - I just watched the bullets in an oven episode on youtube. Very interesting, I never considered the physics of the shell weight vs the slug weight. If bullets go off by heating outside of the gun, the slug basically has minimal force while the casing has a lot of velocity but not really that much force because it's relatively light.

One of my favorites was shooting fish in a barrel. That and bullet proof water.

I just watched the end of fish in a barrel when they shot the M134 minigun. WOW - I just want the spent brass, that thing was pouring it out in buckets. :shocked:

Also:

Using a .22 cartridge as an ad-hoc fuse in a vehicle.
How far underwater so you have to dive to be safe from gunfire.
Will a gas tank explode when you shoot it.
Does getting shot cause the victim to fly backwards and off of their feet like in the movies.
Will shooting in the air cause the bullet to retun to earth at a deadly velocity.
Can you stop a bullet by catching it in your teeth.

There's more I can't recall, I can remember Carrie shooting a gun but it was not in an episode listed here, I just cannot remember what the test was.

Hopefully they will use the writeup we did for the .50 cal myths. That way maybe the idiots on the message board will stop asking about it.

Naaahhhh.

They'll just pick at the way they busted the myth.

Very true. Very very true. There is a reason I rarely if ever post there anymore.
