Rule #2

There have been some who question why Rule #2 is so important. Do not click unless you can tolerate a graphic imageHopefully this photo will help stress the need for Rule #2. What your muzzle sweeps might matter a great deal someday. When a projectile rapidly exits your muzzle, what is before your muzzle matters a great deal. Learn muzzle awareness today and accept no excuses from yourself. If you like to carry your AR-15 on a tactical sling pointed at the ground, be aware of your feet.

If you want to view the results, brace yourself and click the image at left.

What's the name of the ammo, and how much for a box?

Whoever that was probably lost the foot, there is simply too much tissue damage for the foot to be saved and still be functional IMHO. There is simply nothing left to rebuild. That person would likely be better off with a prosthetic than a foot that can't be walked on. Looks like it is a shotgun wound, an AR does not do that kind of damage with one shot. Sure a 5.56 might mess you up, but most of the tissue will still be there.

Guess this dude won't be doing any ballroom dancing for a while. Don't think it will help his golf game either.

OMG! DAMN!

Yesterday's practice drills with PC makes even more sense now after seeing this picture. I just can't imagine that foot being saved as crosshair mentioned.

As horrible as that picture is, it did not make me go "Ack"! out loud like the Idiots with Guns one below. Maybe if the moron sucking on the barrel saw this picture she get a whole lot less stupid in a hurry.

Xavier,

Are you able to vouch for the authenticity of the picture?

There are some faked photos going around.

The surviving robber in that LA bank shoot-out lost both of his feet to short-ranged AR-15 fire ... ankle shots from under the car he tried to hide behind.

A 2" wide swath of complete destruction from a .223 at short range is completely believable.

And yes ... that will leave a mark.

Actually, both of the Bank of America robbers died, if I'm thinking of the same robbery - the one where all the full-auto fire took place. The LAPD is being sued by the second perp's family for not getting him medical treatment fast enough. He bled out.

I saw this on AR15.com. The poster said it was a near point-blank shotgun wound - hunting accident. Is there any further info on it?
