Ricochets are no joke.

One slip up and a trip to the E.R. or worse is your fate.

Witness this shooter catch a ricochet in the gut from an AK-47 rifle.

It can happen in the blink of an eye. The fun stops and shear terror takes over. A ricochet has struck back.

In this video shared by YouTuber Mastapoole he was shooting at an old shotgun’s receiver that was at death’s door. He fired multiple different weapons at the receiver to see what would happen. When he stepped up to an AK-47 rifle the fired bullet made a u-turn back into the shooter.

When shooting at steel or other hard objects always be aware a ricochet can happen. Be careful or I might just be reporting on your accident. Be safe out there my friends.
