SilencerCo – Skydiving With Guns

SilencerCo has upped their status in outrageous stunts. Parachuting from the sky with silenced weapons and shooting them. My hat is off to you. This looks like a lot of fun.

 

DISCLAIMER:

Ever wonder what it would be like to shoot under canopy? We did, so we teamed up with our friends @erathr3 and @tomahawkss to make it happen. Can you name any of the famous skydivers in this video? Do not try this at home… or anywhere else for that matter.

    I guess you never know when you’ll be in a “Shoot ‘Em Up” style gunfight when falling out of an airplane.

    • .45

      I have done exactly that. It was in a Battlefield game as I recall.

      • Revolver Bobcat

        The ending of bad company 2

    • Raven

      Point Break called, it wants its idea back.

      • Don Ward

        I think the point of “Shoot ‘Em Up” was to roll every tired action movie stereotype into one. And then add a gun fight while the protagonist is boning Monica Bellucci.

  • Anonymoose

    I would have worn elbow pads and a pistol lanyard, but that’s just me.

  • hikerguy

    We’ve now seen seen an MP5 shooting from a Cessna over the Pacific and now skydiving shooters firing ARs and a silenced 9mm in the desert. That’s going to be hard to top guys!

    • SP mclaughlin

      That was Mark Serbian shooting an MP5 in Florida, which is a long way from the Pacific.

      • ostiariusalpha

        Mmm, who is Mark Serbian, and does Mark Serbu know that he copied him?

        • SP mclaughlin

          Autocorrect “hecked me hard”.

      • hikerguy

        Could have sworn that it was the Pacific. I guess I have slept since then…. 🙂

    • GaryOlson

      I hear SpaceX is looking for sponsorships. Low Earth Orbit shooting anyone?

      • tsubaka

        that’s standard training for the space shuttle door gunner 😉

      • hikerguy

        Only if they are shooting Barretts with tracer rounds..

  • No lanyard on that pistol? A bit risky there.

    • QuadGMoto

      The cameraman jumped with the pistol then handed it to the shooter. That would make a lanyard problematic.

      My guess is that they wanted to keep extra separation between pistol and ammo within range of the helicopter.

      • And increasing the risk of a fumble. Makes it even less wise.

      • Vindice

        Why? Have guns not just learned to kill people on their own, but also how to load themselves and chamber a round when no one is paying attention?

        • QuadGMoto

          Keep in mind that I don’t have direct knowledge, so I’m just guessing here.

          I noticed that before they jumped the shooter put a magazine in his hand and made sure he had a firm grip on it. The other hand was apparently used to hold on to some place on the chopper, then push off for the jump. That means he needed that hand free. The cameraman apparently jumped with the pistol already in his hand.

          For whatever reason (drop hazard? cool factor?) they decided they did not want to have the mag and pistol in a pouch/pocket and holster. That means the only way they could keep one hand free (other than having the magazine already in the pistol, aka loaded pistol, aka safety hazard) was for the two parts to be carried by separate jumpers.

          Note that the second pistol magazine was handed to the shooter by the guy managing the chute. It also seems like the first mag was actually dropped by accident when it was empty.

    • CommonSense23

      No its not. A lanyard attached to a pistol is a major safety factor if he lets got. You don’t want a pistol bouncing around on a string when deploying your chute.

      • frattygunner

        You also don’t want a pistol plummeting to earth. It isn’t safe either way.

        • CommonSense23

          Yeah. But a pistol plummeting to earth out over the desert statistically isn’t going to be that dangerous. A flopping around piece of string attached to a piece of metal when you open you shoot is going to be incredibly dangerous.

          • Joby

            This sounds like a job for a properly used SIG brace

  • This… does not seem safe.

    • Nathan Alred

      I was going to say stupid – but not safe works.

    • QuadGMoto

      Isn’t that what makes it fun and appealing to guys?

      • Jason Newstedt

        Not smart guys.

        • QuadGMoto

          The really smart guys do the riskiest stuff… very, very carefully. (Test pilots, astronauts, movie stunts, etc.) 😉

    • Edghost

      I know. If you wait a few years we might get someone like Hilary in there and she’ll give us safe spaces. Safe spaces are good. 🙂

  • Rnasser Rnasser

    Next installment: shooting while riding a barrel down the Niagara Falls…

    • QuadGMoto

      Maybe just shooting at a barrel containing 25 lbs of tannerite as it goes over the falls.

  • Brick

    Somebody at SilencerCo is a fan of Point Break

  • bert saxby

    “See you in Hell, Johnny!”

  • .45

    For all those who want to ignore their warning and want to try this at home, I can tell you that your parachute won’t deploy properly with a jump down the stairs but the ATF will still consider you to be shouldering a firearm while stupid.

  • Martin Grønsdal

    COD overdose….

  • 22winmag

    So… you’re thinking about buying a gun for the first time, but you’re turned off by stuff like this and all the backyard Youtube gun-fail videos?

  • Raptor Fred

    This is whack. Do it on this hoverboard thing with a full auto Glock or something stupid internet video worthy. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9b530b907395080f7a5c14ce3845d5de266224f4652c83e1d04e170580797cae.jpg

  • bert saxby

    Silencerco just jumped the shark

    • TennTexan

      “just?”

      I thought the snowboarding video was pretty cheesy as well. #mikeydontsnowsurf

  • valorius

    Stupid.

  • DrewN

    Definitely loses points for riding b!@#h. I f’ing hate being a tandem passenger.

  • Zapp Brannigan

    Wow, that’s incredibly stupid unless the goal was to make anti-gun propaganda.

  • i1776

    Stupid and needs to be stopped.

  • roguetechie

    While I’m pretty much never in favor of more/new laws, there really probably should be a law about firing guns WHILE skydiving!

    I am all for shooting at sharks with an MP5 out the side of a Cessna, but this really isn’t actually cool.

    Did SilencerCo team up with, or get trained by Voda Consulting???

  • Diver6106

    More nerve than me… He jumped WITHOUT a parachute! And relied on the other guy to pop his.A leg jump!

  • Jim N Jenna SK

    Lame

  • BeoBear

    Crap on me will you!!! I’m coming for you bird and hell’s coming with me!!!!!!

    That was wild. Is Top Shot still around? This would make a great a great “elimination challenge”.
