There's no better way to honor the red, white, and blue than by doing a little plinking.
In this episode, .22 Plinkster is attempting to see how many red, white, and blue balloons a .22 long rifle will go through. Unfortunately, gusty winds are giving him fits, but he still manages to take out a bunch of latex with one shot.
How many red, white, and blue balloons do you think a .22 bullet could penetrate?
Wow! That's a lot of balloons!
Given the right trajectory, I'm pretty sure the .22 would have gone through all the balloons in a no wind environment, but that's pretty hard to come by (and I could be totally wrong.)
Good thing .22 Plinkster and his YouTube cohorts are testing this stuff so we'll never have to wonder.
