Fun with Guns

My son and I spent today with a friend and his son at my friend's 2000+ acre family ranch located in the Sierra foothills between Sacramento and Stockton. We caught lots of bass at one of the many ponds located on the ranch, ate lunch, then shot guns; lots of guns. I don't often get the chance to find a place to really stretch the legs on my SKS, but today was one of those opportunities. Watch:

By the way, my aimed shots were fired at some huge floating grapefruit that we tossed in the water, and for the record, that pond is not the same one in which we fished!

Sounds like it was a grand day.

You do know bullets can ricochet off the water...careful, careful.

They can ricochet, but not from the height and angle we were shooting. I raised the same concern yesterday and was told that four generations have shot at that pond without a single incident.

How do you fire that thing left-handed? And isn't and SKS a Chinese made weapon? At first I thought you were going to shoot at the tank!
