I've had 9mm and .45 ACP rounds bounce back and hit me at low speed off of steel plates at a shorter distance (50 yards or so), but can you imagine that? If I was him I'd go buy a Lottery ticket immediately as he's one lucky SOB.
If I was him I probably would have thought that that was far enough too.
It looked like a couple of hundred yards away.

I had to watch that a few times. You can see it hit the ground in front of him just before it hits his earmuffs.
That was some crazy ******. I don't know what else to say.

It's been said before, but I'll say it again. For sufficient penetration ya gotta love ball ammo. :D While I'm at it, why was his nut on a steel plate? :scrutiny:
Okay, sorry, sorry, low road was too tempting... :o
