Where’s her ear protection?!

That’s a pretty small derringer, maybe .22 or .38 Definitely should still wear some but it shouldn’t cause permanent injuries unless it was a constant sound.

Edit: I think I can see ear plugs in and they look a bit purple so I think she is wearing some, like 80% positive but probably wrong haha

I’ve had this really stupid question ever since I was a child (don’t worry, no one has ever let me hold a gun): if you shoot a gun into the air, can it still kill someone on its way back down?

u/Myattemptatlogic Oct 14 '22

Technically, with some insane variables together, it might be possible?

But if you fire it straight up, assuming no wind/outside variables, it's not going to fall back on you any faster than terminal velocity, so it would hurt but definitely should not kill you lol.

u/Astonedwalrus13 Sep 26 '22

It depends on a variety of factors, simple answer yes it can potentially kill. But it depends on weight, wind, velocity, the shooting arc and a whole lot of other factors, but yes a large enough caliber projectile can kill on its way down.

You’re better off not finding out hahahaha

It's a bond arms. Have one, and extra barrels, even a 22 version. It's loud AF with any caliber, tiny sights, and can shoot 410 on down. It's a riot, but assuming it's small caliber would be wrong, it's just a tiny gun that can shoot multiple. Usually have mine in 410 mode for its intended use on the ranch, a pocket snake gun.

Wow that sounds nice, I’m an Australian so I can’t have pistols especially anything this concealable without running the seven circles of hell gauntlet of paperwork for the licenses

Way more recoil than .22. Probably .38 or 9mm.

u/smootex Sep 23 '22

No shot that's a .38 or 9mm. Look at the size of the barrel.

1

u/Astonedwalrus13 Sep 23 '22

Hmmmmmmm, I think 9mm would be a bit big maybe. I was thinking 38 auto so a little shorter than the 9 but fairly similar size projectile

Bond Arms makes em in 357 and 45 Long Colt

u/Potato-Demon Sep 23 '22

Recoil didn’t look too bad despite her horrible form, you’re right

u/phathomthis Sep 23 '22

Definitely a small caliber. from the barrel size I'd say likely a .22 or .25. I shoot those without earpro as they're not very loud.

u/Myattemptatlogic Oct 14 '22

It's a Bond Arms, shoots both .45 and 410 shells. It's loud as fuck lol.

u/picode-gallo Sep 23 '22

I mean I have one with the same barrel length that shoots .357 magnum.
