Our maximum leader has posted frequently about the hazards of shooting into water. Bullets can skip like stones off of the surface, ending up…who knows where? Obviously, this can have tragic results. Here’s a video, courtesy of the Rifleman Channel, that illustrates this with alarming clarity. There’s no telling what or who is down range from the shooter as he repeatedly fires an AR across the surface of a pond trying to “curve a bullet.” As the tracers clearly show, the bullets skip and are launched into the night. And like Longfellow’s arrow, the rounds fell to earth, he knows not where. Rule 4: know your target and what’s beyond it.
