    The image of Gavin firing an assault rifle with his eyes closed is now seared in my brain...

  • Krinjax

    There's a slight (very slight) delay from when the pin hits the primer and when the bullet actually fires. Anyone else notice that? I just thought that was cool; and interesting.

    Shooting a gun (especially something fully auto) is a wonderful felling.

    @DoomsdayUnit from Wikipedia:
    "An assault rifle is a selective fire (selective between semi-automatic, fully automatic and/or burst fire) rifle that uses an intermediate cartridge and a detachable magazine"

    There's no such thing as an assault rifle that isn't fully automatic...

    these just keep getting more and more awesome. i love the post commentary. it's too bad they don't have a setting so that we can see the bullet coming out of the barrel. admit it, that would be sweet. maybe in the future perhaps?

    My friends and I loved it! Except my principle thinks its inappropriate so he blocked RoosterTeeth.com *Facepalm* You just do not block Rooster Teeth or the Slo Mo Guys.

    That was pretty cool to hear all of Dan's knowledge on the gun and how he mocked Gavin.

    It's pretty awesome to see Dan look so BAMF and sound so smart

  • Startrekian

    Something I think would be pretty awesome to see in slow mo would be you guys blending things. You could rig a push mover to where we could see you chuck melons and stuff into the blade and then see it eviscerated into a big slushy stream... BADASS!!!

    To be honest guys they are both really really intelligent just in different fields Gavin has a vast knowledge of filming and stuff and Dan has a vast knowledge of military experience.

  • King_Ryan16

    Can anyone SEE the bullet come out of the gun or just the flash at the end of the barrel? Because I cannot see the bullet...

    Awesome video! I hope there would be more videos with guns and/or explosives, just so I can watch more of Dan, with his vast knowledge of armaments. Oh, and also Gav!

    That awkward moment when you're normally not attracted to Dan, but after seeing him shoot this gun you suddenly have the biggest lady boner for him...

    It's impressive how much the gun actually rattles, when at normal speed it looks so sturdy

    Spectacular as always; love also seeing Gavin demonstrating where the term "spray and pray" came from!

  • River_Jones

    That was spectacular, it is amazing how well designed the gun is, there is even a little triangle of metal to push the casing away from the gun after it has been ejected.
