I don't think I've ever taken out my rifle without at least a six pack for back up

I have seen a video of a guy cooking bacon on the supressor of his rifle, and yes he peeled it off and ate it. So that could have been included.

The health and safety of the eagle came first. You fucking niggerfaggots don’t understand priorities. Beer and bacon probably came after the rescue.

Wtf? You aren't american that's for sure. Fucking ISISfag. We eat bacon before, during and fucking after while drinking beer and having chocolate covered bacon for dessert. He was breathing too, I notice they didn't say that either. You don't have to when it's obvious!

If you are shooting near vertical IT DOES NOT MATTER. The bullet goes up and reaches apogee (stops and comes back toward earth under the force of gravity ONLY) then falls to the ground at terminal velocity for a falling object of the same mass, shape and altitude above sea level, as if it were manually dropped from that same height. In other words it would not hurt the eagle and barely leave a bruise on a human.

People that think rounds fired straight up drop bullets at lethal speeds similar to muzzle velocities or even a 10th of that speed are just as uneducated as the elitist lefties say we all are. Physics, look it up and LEARN about it!

Some of you back woods Christians are as bad as the back woods Muslims in Afghanistan. Tribal and having zero understanding of science or why things happen the way they do. Experience is not everything, buddy.

Backwoods Christian here. You've got the wrong guys. It's the big city atheists who lack knowledge of how guns work.

I like how you were able to connect the topic to elitist leftists, backwoods Christians, and Muslims in Afghanistan.

The guy may have fired straight up. We don't know that from the OP. Even if he did, that falling bullet is still probably going to hurt or do some damage if it connects with something, even though it probably wouldn't kill you. It's a piece of lead falling from a great height.

edit: he was using a .22, so that may have been why

I bet this guy knows about "inches, minutes, and clicks", too.

Might even know the proper function of government.

Obviously nothing or he wouldn't have done it. Military men know their gun safety and the trajectory of all common rounds.

You'd hope so. It piqued my curiousity so i found the article.

No word on what precautions he took with regards to the backstop or if he fired straight up or horizontally. He was only using a .22 though so maybe that's why they deemed it safe enough.

He was concerned that the branches were about to attack. Clearly self-defense. Another American life saved because he had a gun.
