If there’s no resistance to hold back a gun, just how far will recoil throw it? If you’ve been wondering, today is your lucky day!

A .500 Magnum has some serious recoil when you fire it. In fact, many people are scared to shoot one for the sake of their wrists. But, have you ever wondered, “Just how far will recoil throw it if I’m not there to stop it with my insanely strong wrists?”

Today’s the day you find out as Demolition Ranch tests out the that dangerous question.

Did we mention that this is dangerous?

It seems like a lot of videos we’ve seen lately are dangerous. We would not recommend for anyone to try anything like this, but it is a very interesting test, and the results were spectacular.

It’s so great that we’ve got someone who’s out there willing to do what it takes to find out answers to questions like this, so we don’t have to.
