    Was flipping through the channels and saw some tacticool preppers sitting up in a plywood hunting blind with EBRs so I kept tuned in.

    It was well worth it...:rofl:

    One of them announced he was going to take a shot at a target, both had on hearing protection, and the one not shooting put his hands over his ear muffs prior to the shot.

    The shooter took one shot and the other one freaked out; screaming and rolling out of the blind. I thought he had either been shot or the brass went down his shirt.

    Nope. The sound was apparently so traumatic for him that it caused great physical harm...

    He was throwing up, crying, laying on the ground, and an ambulance was called...:shocked:

    WTF??

    The narrator for the show of course pointed out how the flashhider on the end of the barrel was actually a muzzlebrake and actually magnified the sound of the shot...:upeyes:

    Yea, TV is BS, and the guy is a puss either way.

    Having been standing right next to an idiot that ND'd a 20" 12ga inside a metal building... I can assure you, its not THAT bad.

    One thing about these shows is no one expects aimed gunfire. They think well I can walk around my place im armed and grow food etc.
    One or two guys sniping and or assaulting and they would fall apart.
    Still fun to watch.

    I saw that last night too.

    I found it interesting the guy who got injured was talking about how much he knew about firearms having been raised around them and how little the other guy knew.

    Smash cut to them sitting in some kind of blind/lookout box in the desert next to each with the firearms novice about to fire his rifle with the muzzle inside this blind/lookout box. The "expert" sitting next to him and adjacent but slightly behind the other guys muzzle, sees what he is doing and instead of stopping him, puts his hand over his ear muff, turns his head and leans away. Then the shot and much drama.........

    The best part was the "expert," who obviously should have known better and taken steps to stop him, blamed the novice and said he couldn't be part of his little prepper team anymore..........:rofl:

    It was goofy for sure.

    Not for nothing but I have a Miculek brake on my AR that could be mistaken for a flash hider and God help you if you're standing in my 7-10 or 1-4 position. The concussion goes right through you.

    We do all know that the shows are total bs right? As in fake family members who are actually actors, show subjects encouraged to act like loons, etc...

    That's the best part. If it's real, it's funny and sad. Conversely, if it's fake, it's funny and sad. Either way, I got a chuckle out of it............

    Didn't one of the adults shoot his finger off while showing his kids how to safely use firearms?

    Yeah, I was thinking what a pansy. They are both wearing hearing protection and the other guy is all laid out on the ground because he heard a loud noise. I don't think he has to worry about protecting his ranch. The moment he fires his own weapon, he'll be laid out on the ground moaning and belly aching.:rofl:

    Do you think that was real or staged?
