phosphorus is in the tip of tracer rounds, and their bouncing off of the ground when they hit it, ricocheting.

"actually mcgovern, they are just burning different elements (neon=orange, hydrogen=pinkish (or red, forget) copper=green) for fireworks"

Like I said when you use a firework your probably burning more materials/chemicals/elements/whatever.

No, it`s to see where you`re shooting when you have a machine gun.

With a machine gun, it doesn`t really matter if they can see where the bullets are coming from or not--they`ll know where you are.

The scariest thing about this video is seeing how far the bullets bounce...

What is the use of a tracer? Is it to expose where you are nested at when firing so the enemy can easily find you?

You have to have a license to use them - Almost anything the military uses you can - as long as you have a level 3 or AOW license.

But I am not going to lie, Shooting one of those things would be fun as hell... so long as I don`t have to pay for the rounds.

Those bullets were experiencing some SERIOUS ricochet.
I hope that range they were shooting on was like 5 miles long.

I think fireworks actually burn more chemicals than bullets that how they make all the different colors and effects.

Ok lets some some things straight.. zazuch, yes normally a trace round is every 5th round, however you can very easily link a belt of tracers, I have seen this done several times. Reasons for doing such: On one military post I was stationed at, because of dry weather, there had been a tracer ban for a couple months. We had a night of really good rain, so they said to burn all tracer rounds.. so they linked together several belts of tracers and fired them off. Now, the really stupid part about how they are doing this: they are on full auto, burning off the entire belt in one pull.... BAD IDEA, as this will quickly melt the barrel and ruin the weapon. Seen this happen as well (I`ve worked on several ranges for 240B and 249. These people are either idiots, or destroying decommissioned weapons. And yes, a tracer round (phosphorous tipped) WILL kill you. They are normal rounds with a special tip, that`s it. However, yes, it will burn the *** out of you. Have fun, stay safe!

If you get a direct hit in your head with one I`m pretty sure it can kill you. Even flare guns kill when shot at point blank. I`m not too sure about being hit in other places though.

First thought when seeing this: Tracers? Tracers?? You mean lasers! :P

the cool thing is that quite often tracer rounds are only put in after 4 normal rounds. So for each tracer you see there is 4 rounds that have came before or after it.

And to the people saying people shouldnt own guns like that. As other people said its a pay to shoot place. You pay x amount of cents or dollars per round you shoot.

For the gun control people no one cares about what people have to say either way. If people wanted a serious gun control debate they surely would go someplace else other then iab to discuss it.

christ, why are americans so obsessed with guns and explosions.
Christ, why are Europeans so obsessed with finding fault with Americans.

See generalized thoughtless comments can be made in both directions. Don`t be such an ass.

Christ, why are canadians always left out? hahahaha

yep...looks like one of them pay to shoot ranges, good fun but still would prefer my blackpowder gun to one of them MGs. Classic is always best.
And to all the anti-gun ranting douchebags, stuff it for once and enjoy the vid, no one gives a hoot and to ban violent crime you have to ban humans, end of the story and no arguement against it.

I think this is a place where you can rent a gun to shoot like that...kinda like a carnival thing.

Can shoot whatever weapon you could ever want for a fee. The people shooting don`t own the guns, I bet.

America is worse off for letting people own guns though, lets be honest. There`s more gun crime because people find it easier to get guns. I wouldn`t know where to begin looking for a gun here in the UK. People complain about how much crime there is, get rid of the guns for gods sake.

Yay, they have big guns. Automatics which are good for killing... people. Yes, let all of our citizens (unless you have been charged with murder already) be able to buy them. What a great idea!!!!!

These are not used for hunting unless u like your deer with lead/phosphorus which is an extremely good idea to eat (so you fking die and rot in hell).

Yes i have shot 22`s and 306`s but they are bolt action and not designing for mowing down people.

"Bring in a new law that anyone who applies for a gun licence has to serve 3 years in the military first you also would get all the gun nuts outta your country "

Gun restrictions will become a great idea when there is no threat of governmental tyranny. And I can forgive you for not knowing, because you live in Europe, but government tyranny has been increasing more and more in recent years.

uh ..its not illegal to buy and own automatic weapons in every single state (such as texas) and not all states have bans on tracer rounds either. plus, just because something is illegal doesn`t mean people still don`t own/buy/shoot them. lol

"haha that would come from somewhere like Alabama or Texas."

im thinking more nevada or arizona, somewhere with a desert, and somewhere that doesnt have hillbillies. it has to either be in another country (non USA) or those arent civilians. seeing as how it is illigal to own automatic weaponry, and tracer rounds.
