Afghan Special Forces Shoot Cans Out Of Hand

Found this gem on Facebook. The solider is using an M4 variant with what looks like a Trijicon Acog, PEQ, and possibly a SureFire weapon light. It goes without saying that this is dangerous and should not be attempted. However I do commend the skill set of the soldier that made these shots. It is rather close range but I would not want to be the guy holding the soda cans. Please do not try this at home.

    At least it looks like they made an effort to protect the guy's vital organs, though they don't seem to consider his brain to be all that important. Either that or it's just too small to be at risk of actually being hit.

    In 2010 I visited the Police Commando Training centre In Multan, Pakistan. Over lunch with the commander, he offered to have his best marksman shoot the apple off the head of a trainee at 100m. When pressed on what weapon the shooter would be using, I was informed 'just a regular G3, no optics" I'm normally up for a spectacle like that, but the FU factor was too high in my book to have some poor digger schwacked for my entertainment, so I passed on the offer.

      @Ozzie @Ozzie Why does that not surprise me? I would've passed on that too.
