Man Discovers Shooting Aerosol With AK-308 Is A Very Bad Idea
A Texan man has discovered the hard way that shooting an aerosol can with a machine gun isn't the best of ideas. In a video uploaded to the internet, Kristofer, who hails from Rio Medina, is captured taking aim at a small, white can with his fully loaded AK-308 rifle - and suffice to say it doesn't go well for him.
As his friend, Nicholas, goads him into blasting the pressurised tyre-inflator, the proud gun owner takes the bait and witnesses disastrous consequences as the can explodes and spring towards his face, narrowly missing his eyes.
The shocking footage, although only lasting a few seconds, shows the scary moment Kristofer stands around 10 feet away, before taking his stance, and prepares to fire.
On impact, we see the can shoot toward him and explode all over his face. And despite the serious nature of the incident his friend couldn't help but see the funny side of what had just happened to his friend.
As Kristofer becomes covered in white foam and stands there in utter disbelief, his mate simply shouts, "Oh my god!" as the pair process what just took place.

Kristofer, clearly dazed and unsure if he's seriously hurt, tries to make light of the situation and laughs along with his giddly mate: "I need a cigarette."
The damage, however, was there to see, as blood oozes from two deep cuts on his forehead just above his eyes. And what did his mate continue to do? Laugh, of course.
But after the giggling had ended and the gun owner's mate composes himself and refocuses the camera phone, the damage to his face is clear as day.
And once he literally sees red gushing from his head the laughter then turns to worry, and expresses his concern: "You're f***ing bleeding, bro!"
Moments later, we see the blood gush from a cut that Kristopher naturally downplays as no big deal, as he attempts to contain the bleeding that has dribbled down his nose and all over his clothes.
The incident itself actually took place in May of 2019 but has only just surfaced online in the past few days.
The advice we can all take away from this is, unsurprisingly, not to shoot machine guns at highly pressurised aerosol cans.
