Firing Golf Balls Out Of An AR-15 At A Person

A promotional / fundraising stunt put on by a Charlotte, NC radio show:

Raising some money for the USO of North Carolina, Woody put on a trash can and headed out onto the driving range. Did I mention that in addtion to driving golf balls at him with a golf club, you could also FIRE AN AR-15 at him?!? $1 per ball for a golf shot or $5 per ball to fire a golf ball from an AR-15 rifle at Woody. All the proceeds went to the USO of NC and Purple Heart Homes.

The armor: 

A video from the event:

If you want to pick up an AR-15 Golf Ball Launcher for your own stupid stunts they are $25 over at Amazon.

Pointing an AR-15 at someone and pulling the trigger with or without a golf ball attachment, unless you’re planning on killing them doesn’t sit well with me.  The stunt did benefit the USO though which is a bonus, but I can’t see that organization being too thrilled about the method of fund raising.  I guess you can’t bite the hand(s) that feed you.

What’s next?  A real revolver contestants can play Russian roulette with, but instead of a real bullet there will be a fart stinkbomb capsule that will get broken by the hammer.  That person will be the winner.  Sounds equally as irresponsible and dumb.

Ooooo i’ve got another one.  A .50 BMG that contestants can wrap their mouth around the end of, but instead of real cartridges in the magazine, they will all be duds except for one that is filled with Redbull!  That person will be the winner.

I guess you just have to “hope” no one slips in a real round.  Wasn’t that on one child’s play movie?

Thoughts?  More dumb ideas?

  1. That video would have been a lot better without the man in the background having what sounds like a combination of constipation and a kidney stone.

    Russian Roulette with a Makarov.

  3. I think you may be taking this a little too seriously. You take the “what if something goes horribly wrong” angle for anything, it doesn’t mean those what-ifs are likely. They had fun, raised money for the USO, and no one got shot with real bullets. I don’t really see the problem.

  6. I’m also having a hard time being mad at this. I fired blanks at people with an M4 and M16 for ten years, so I’m kinda numb to it. What did piss me off is how many people chicken-winged the hell out of that AR. PUT YOUR ELBOWS DOWN, PEOPLE!

      I’m aware of re-enactments, military training etc… and I don’t think that’s wrong.

      When I wrote the post I was in the mindset of “I hope these radio goofs know what they are doing, and are watching that no one mixes ammo etc..”

    I would have rather took the AR shot golf ball than the driver at point blank. that little kid was rippin that driver. Im a golfer and he had a good swing and im amazed that they would let that happen. for real the ball hit with a club would have been much worse than the ar.

      Yea the fact the ball bounces is pretty weak :/

  8. Endo-Mike, what do you think about WW2 reenactment? They use blanks (at each other) in real weapons all the time.

      Good point. I suppose since these guys were radio yahoos my initial reaction was different.

      1. Fair enough. I agree that presentation is important, and target audience. :)

  9. just another step in desensitizing people and guns

  10. How do you think your favorite movies are made? You’ve made it very clear that you celebrate action movies…do you not condone the safe use of blank-firing guns during filming?

    1. ENDO-Mike Avatar

      I know what you’re saying but I don’t think movie prop guys and the safety precautions they take can be compared to whatever these radio jokers likely did. Obviously no one got killed though, and they all knew it was a a real gun, and were aware of the possible risks so in the end who cares I guess.

    Reenactors, indeed. Southern reenactors dont shoot just blanks.

    The only problem I see is that they were using blanks. And not enough Glocks. And the photographer behind the shooter? What a wuss. Get downrange, son!

    What about some real Russian Roulette?

      haha long, but intense.

      Wow that video was fucking intense, guys. I can’t believe they did that. That should be a mandatory monthly sport for all elected and appointed officials.

    1. Shotgun? It’s been done in Finland.

  14. These guys used to live in my city (Anchorage, AK) I miss them. They were really funny. I won a chance to play some free paint ball with these guys and learned the hard way that Woody is pretty handy with a paint gun. All that being said, this does not look like a good idea to me.

  15. Bahaha. I’d totally shoot someone with the golf ball attachment.
