Click the link or paste it into your URL. There's a warning message in red letters you have to click past telling you it's not appropriate viewing for children. Click past it and you'll get the video. No, this isn't porn. It's just something to think about as we spend the next few weeks remembering 9-11 and seething about what these bastards did to us.
I love it!
Mohammad's head explodes and leaves his head-rag cartwheeling thru space. Keep it up, lads!
Good one. That round has to have some type of explosive nose charge to dislodge those muzzies like rag dolls doesn't it?

There's nothing magic about .50BMG. It's just a small arms cartridge, albeit a large one. It won't send human bodies flying through the air, or explode them like prarie dogs. It won't even come close to doing these things. It will make the body twitch more so than whatever rifle was used by Mythbusters, but that's about it.
.50BMG from a rifle length barrel is, approximately, a 650 grain bullet at 2800 fps.
If you want to make a human seem like a prarie dog, a better start would be a 25mm auto cannon as mounted on the Bradley. A 2300 grain projectile at 4400 fps.
Damn, that was the most enjoyable video I've watched in a long time. Keep those ragheads exploding.

Wow. good Shooting.
I could have sworn on the last shot there was a secondary explosion of some sort, like the bullet hit a guy's RPG round in a pack or something. Did you notice that? If it was just an animal, why the explosion? I'm not disputing you. There's a lot of phony stuff on the Net. But the secondary explosion seems odd if just an animal.
Unless of course Ma is a sniper. Some of the best of the Soviet WW-II snipers were women.
Not that there is much difference in the final analysis. Just different varmints, and different rounds as appropriate to the targets.
Oh, yeh, four legged varmints don't shoot back
Just looked like a puff of dirt being kicked up to me.
