Did anyone see the "Brave or stupid.wmv" where "sniper" allegedly shot watermelon off his "friends" head with a .50 cal BMG round ?

I tried to attach the video but could not figure out how.

I do not believe it and suspect it was staged.

Definitely staged, definitely doable (stupid) and potentially a Darwin Award.

PT92 -You said "Definitely staged, definitely doable (stupid) and potentially a Darwin Award".

You must have seen video - how do you figure it was staged ? I suspect maybe a "firecracker" in the watermelon and that is why the "target" plugged his ears, maybe not because of muzzle blast at that distance. What do you think ?

The guys who put the video together have multiple vids with impressive effects. It would have been too easy for them to stage a fake shoot, than to risk attempting a real one.

Neither brave, nor stupid... just very talented at videography and such. Watch some of their other videos; it's pretty impressive.

This has been posted before, and really doesn't fit the THR mission.
