Shooting Drink Cans Off Someone’s Shoulders

A v rare Afghan Special Forces trick shot:

hahaha man people are dumb and take unnecessary risks.  What a turn this video would have taken, if when the can exploded a razor sharp peel of aluminum extended outwards to cut that guy’s jugular vein.  That happening was a very real possibility… YOLO though I guess?  Damn there are like 7 guys there too, and they were all evidently ok with this.

Someone please get super mad and argue in the comments how crucial “confidence training” is to team building.  Do it around mid afternoon though k?  I don’t like eating popcorn in the morning. :P

Afghan-Special-Forces-Drink-Can-Trick-ShotThoughts?  Have I ever mentioned how I love when there are 1080p options on videos which remain looking like they are filmed out of the rear aperture (ass hole) of a goat?

Gat tip: Jeep

      We do better training and give better equipment. But I think the other side pays a lot better. Which is how ISIS got it’s start.

  2. That’s obviously an American doing the shooting. I’ve never seen an afghan who could shoot. I even worked with the commandos a little. Their SF handlers told us to make sure we were safely behind them if shit went down.

    Someone somewhere is currently getting an article 15 for being dumb on camera. If you’re going to do something dumb, for the love of Travis Haley, don’t record it.

      Exactly what I thought and the handshake is also and good indicator.

  3. Dude, my range buddies and I do this all the time. The shrapnel thing isn’t an issue unless you use a rifle (something about that high). So we use a pistol or shotgun. Gotta know who you are shooting with, bro………

    I couldn’t wait until mid-afternoon. Sorry man.

    Young men do stupid stuff. It’s just a fact of life. Back in the day some young men in American Indian tribes suspended themselves by wire or bone under their collar bones to prove how bad ass and tough they were.

    Humans are stupid. This is never going to change.

      +1 so true, so sadly true

      Actually, that was a rite of passage for some native american tribes (I think Lakota in particular?) where at the big dance, boys who were trying to become men would have hooks attached to their skin (well, they’d pierce the skin w/ rawhide strips & tie it off) from a tall pole and they’d have to dance around the pole until they tore free (so they’d have to rip apart their skin). If anyone shirked or cried out, they were given like one chance, and if they still couldn’t do it, they were forever relegated to “not a man” status and given women’s work and had to hang out with the women for the rest of their lives.

    I honestly think that Afghans place a lot less value on a human life vs western nations…. they embody the #yolo spirit lol. Afghan SF is aight in my book… effective? Meh. Motivated? Yes. Hell of a lot more than the ‘police’ anyways. Afghan security forces took around 7k casualties this year btw, if anyone doubts their ability to go outside the wire. Not saying their GOOD at what they do, just that they are out there lol. Generally high on hashish, but so is everyone else.

    Never been to the sandbox myself but after seeing videos of how much hashish and opium these guys are smoking all day this does not surprise me.

    Dude, go stand over there and put these soda cans on your shoulders.


    I’m going to shoot said soda cans off of said shoulders.

    Do what now?

    Fine. I’ll do it. If I die, I get my 72 virgins, right?

    Yo! I get the virgins if this goes shitty, right?!

    Yeah, you get virgins I guess. Hurry up, Omar’s iPad battery is running out.
