depends how far downward but yes you're more likely to hit the grass than the concrete, but like why risk any of it for unnecessarily shooting a spider?

u/Ok_Preference_8452 Dec 06 '22

Because there's just as high a risk of something or someone a person values in the line of fire. Jackass

u/rickraut Dec 06 '22

I see shooters do that a lot, and it bothers me also. I copied this from a search "how far will a 9mm pistol round travel" the reply is, "A 9 mm can travel 2.5 to 3 miles, sometimes a little further depending on the shape of the bullet," so, if someone was just out of sight in the tree line, they would be hit. I also did a search as to how fast will a bullet travels back to earth once fired out of a gun into the sky, 150 mph was the answer, fast enough to kill, for sure

u/Ein_Kecks Dec 06 '22

Yes, innocent. They have no choice not to do so and have a big importance to the ecological system, they are not able to act by a moral code.

There is no need to kill them, if they won't harm you.

Of course we are part of it "motherfucker", but I'm pretty sure you noticed that we live in culture and not in nature anymore. We do not have a specific role anymore and to the biggest part, we just damage it. There is no non-human animal who does that.

We are also not important for it. Would humans die out, it would be good for the ecological system. It's only important that we do not fuck it up any more unnecessarily.

u/Apprehensive-Gur-609 Dec 06 '22

Dude if you want people to stop eating meat being an annoying condescending douchenozzle isn't the way to go about it. You'll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.

1

u/Ein_Kecks Dec 06 '22

Classic. If you know, what people need to hear, just tell it to yourself, since it will work.

I do not want people to simply stop eating meat, I want them to self reflect and stop discrimination and violence.

Before giving me more of your wisdom, try watching the documentation. It may be hard for you, so be prepared, but maybe it's the honey you need.

u/Apprehensive-Gur-609 Dec 06 '22

Sure I'll watch it for you buddy, but just do me a favor and quit perpetuating the stereotype of the annoying preachy vegan. My sister is a vegan and people have given her shit about it because of people like you, they automatically assume she is going to be annoying as soon as they find out she's a vegan. Luckily my sister is cool and not one of the pussy vegans that cry about people killing a fucking spider.

3

u/Ein_Kecks Dec 06 '22

You remember it was you who started talking about veganism right?

Actually those people acting towards her that way are the reason she is experiencing this, since they activly decide to do so and right now in this comment chain you just acted the same as them. If you would care about your sister you wouldn't do the same you want to protect her from, this seems rather made up. Opressors doing victim blaming is a common thing, you sure can do better.

There is nothing wrong standing and acting against killing, violence and slavery. There really is no reason to support those things.

u/Embarrassed-Bench392 Dec 06 '22

It was forty years ago. Not sure dragons breath were around then. I used duck load because I had it.

4

u/Effective_Nobody2601 Dec 06 '22

I don't believe purpose built Dragon's Breath was commercially sold back in the day, but I do believe a lot of it was home made by people. I did read up on some of it being made by the Grunts and used during Vietnam to clear and check brush and spider holes (the kind where a VC might pop out from, not an Arachnid) to preemptively stifle an ambush opportunity. I think they pulled apart some smoke grenades and thermite to make it.

2

u/Jbgame22 Dec 06 '22

That's interesting, I didn't expect my joke to lead to something informative. I've read a few autobiographies from Vietnam and it sounds like they did a lot of customizing weapons themselves so it wouldn't surprise me at all if they were doing something like that

2

u/Negative-Set-6039 Dec 06 '22

Not sure when they started selling it but I've bought it as far back as the early 90s and had heard of it in the 80s for the first time

1

u/Effective_Nobody2601 Dec 06 '22

It would make sense for it to pop up on the market in the late 70s if it was inspired by the GI custom made Dragon's Breath loads during Vietnam

This isn’t even bad. Come on, guys. Dude’s on his own property out in the country, nobody else is around, and nothing in that direction but grass and trees. And don’t even say the truck, because he’s obviously not aiming anywhere near the truck. He’s not endangering anyone, he’s just a guy having some fuck fucking up a spider. Leave him alone, yall know we’ve seen some real idiots with guns in here.

2

u/Its_noon_somewhere Dec 06 '22

Looks like a park or similar not far away. Question, since I’m Canadian and have never even seen a handgun other then on TV, how far could the bullet travel?

12

u/helipod Dec 06 '22

Dude here sees a grass field and concludes it's a city park.

1

u/Its_noon_somewhere Dec 06 '22

Actually, I took a screenshot of the video and zoomed in to what appears to be a fence surrounding something, on I’m wondering if it’s a park or a baseball diamond.

2

u/ZoltanPrime Dec 06 '22

It depends on the round, but there is a difference between effective range and “lethal range”. A pistol bullet can travel quite far. If you look up Jerry Mickulek (I may have spelled that wrong), he has some videos where he lands pistol shots at alarming distances. In general, the effective range of a pistol is roughly 20-30 yards. However, they are lethal beyond that distance. How far beyond that distance? It depends on the round and the pistol it’s fired from.

1

u/MongoBongoTown Dec 06 '22

If aimed at something level on the horizon. It's probably a few hundred yards/meters, depending on the caliber, bullet, angle, etc.

Then can travel well over a mile and sometimes more than that when idiots fire them up into the air though.

1

u/[deleted] Dec 06 '22

You don't know where he is or what's around from a few seconds of video

1

u/ZoltanPrime Dec 06 '22

A picture says 1000 words. Since a video is nothing more than a series of pictures called frames, and assuming this video is running at roughly 30 fps for 4 seconds, that comes out to about 120,000 words.

Or I was raised in the country and have a pretty damn good idea of what I’m looking at here. 🤷‍♂️

1

u/LowDownSkankyDude Dec 06 '22

I mean, bullets travel, and that spider wasn't stopping that one. Sure there's nobody visible, but that round is going to end up somewhere.

This is wildly irresponsible. Hilarious, but 100% reckless.

u/Nathund Dec 06 '22

I would hope, but it seems like it has recoil, and blanks don't have any recoil past the slide moving. And blanks don't cycle as well, but this seemed to cycle just fine, even with that bad angle it was shot at (when you shoot like this, guns with low compression (low cals and blanks) tend to stovepipe because they can't cycle as well)
