.22 LR Gravity Fired Out Of A Drinking Straw

Demolition Ranch with some more redneck science:

Ranch-DressingI see this being the new national pass time for bad news youth in the hood this summer. Lucky .22 LR is hard to get. ;)

Like Ranch said, theoretically the bullet wouldn’t be traveling very fast at all since it’s not inside any sort of chamber or barrel. How about a Bic pen? That’s a lot stiffer the probably about the same diameter.

Thoughts?

I probably wouldn’t have done that so close to my truck.

Blanks not heavy enough?

I don’t know. I tried adding some small rocks to add weight but still didn’t work.

Likely the bullet didn’t go very far and the case went flying due to physics. Only reason why guns work is they hold the case firmly in place so only the bullet can move.

am I the only one that’s thrown handfuls of .22 into a fire while camping? For the lulz?

I once tossed a .22lr, that did not fire properly in my target revolver, over my shoulder and when it landed on the concrete behind me it must have hit just right because it went off. I nearly had a heartattack and spent the next 30 minutes making sure that my house and nothing anywhere nearby was hit. I cant think it had any real power behind it because as stated there is no barrel or anything to channel the pressure or gasses, not to mention that the casing and the bullet would each absorb half of the energy expended, thus each would probably be going pretty slow, but it was still a pretty tense event.
