This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Gun myth for gun experts to comment on

Quote from: Nicephorus
That's because the original post is written wrong.  The gun should be parallel to the ground, not perpindicular

In theory, it would work, but it would be tricky to actually make it happen in full scale.  The fired round is likely to be deflected up or down a bit by the air unless it's perfectly shaped.

Now it makes sense.  I just couldn't see how shooting a gun up and dropping a bullet down were going to have this result.  But yes, from a physics perspective it will work as described here (in theory).
