Better have vice grip hands when shooting an elephant gun.

This shooter didn’t and the following melee is caught on video.

Witness the elephant gun shooter that never thought of recoil.

If you shoot a heavy recoiling weapon you better hang on to it!

Well this shooter in a video shared on Facebook by Dinkwe Safari’s & Taxidermy did none of the above. What is even worse is that the camera guy was directly behind him. When the heavy recoiling double rifle goes off it comes right out of the shooter’s hands. It then hits both the shooter and the camera man with a terrific smack.

What is the moral of this story? Better hold on or step away from a heavy recoiling weapon.
