Pretty and Dangerous: Firing Tracers at a Lake

tracersI remember in Hunters Safety class I was told never to fire a gun at the surface of the water. I always thought it was a crap way to keep me from shooting fish in a barrel. As it turns out, under the right conditions, firing at the surface of the water will cause the bullets to skip like a stone and arch and pretty much become the prettiest light show and the longest jail term you’ve ever seen.

This one’s a video of a guy shooting tracer rounds at the surface of the water and watching as they flutter away like a butter fly in a slipstream. All this video does is serves to make me want to try this at home. First problem,the courts say I can’t have a firearm. Second problem, never seen tracers at the store. Third problem, I can’t go out at night, but that’s to maintain the safety of my neighborhood.

Hit the jump for the video.
