Shooter Hit in the Head By .50 Cal Ricochet, Survives Unscathed

This shooter is lucky that he still has a head on his shoulders.

In the video below, he shoots a steel-plated target that’s maybe 200 yards away using a .50 cal rifle. The shot hits the target, ricochets straight back towards him and hits him and knocks the ear muffs right off of his dome piece.

Listen for the sound the bullet makes on its return trip to the shooter. It’s like a bomb drop from a Looney Tunes cartoon.

As one YouTube user commented, “An inch to the right and he wouldn’t have a head.”

Lucky. Lucky indeed.
