22 Ammo + Drinking Straw = Bang? (Video)
Russ Chastain 03.16.16
Remember those cap bombs you had when you were a kid? You know, the ones that had tail fins and a heavy nose. You put some paper caps in there, the kind that came in red paper rolls, and tossed it up into the air. When it landed on a hard surface, the caps would explode. Sweet!
Well, this genius is trying to do the same thing with 22 long rifle rimfire ammo.
He crams a loaded cartridge into a drinking straw, then tosses it into the air. When it lands, rim-first, on a hard surface–in this case, an asphalt road–will it go bang?
Let’s find out, shall we?
But please, don’t try this at home (or anywhere else).
