Fastest Shooter In The World Pops Balloon 8 Feet
Away SHOOTING BLANKS
The first time I saw this video, I was impressed.
This EXTREMELY MODEST "Fastest Shooter In The World" draws and hits
balloons 8 feet away in .02 seconds. Fast and accurate, WOW! The second time I watched it, I paid closer attention and I heard the
shooter say he was SHOOTING BLANKS out of his 45 caliber Colt pistol.
Popping balloons while shooting blanks, NICE TRICK!
So it must be that his gun shot residue (GSR) is what's hitting and
popping the balloons?
Question is, "How Far Does The GSR Spread"? If it has a wide
dispersion pattern, then simply pointing the gun in the right direction
may cause the balloons to pop. I wondered how far the GSR spread.
Out of curiosity, I did a little experiment of my own. I wanted to
see if the GSR from my Glock 19 9mm reloads would pop a balloon if I
shot at the balloon (missing it by inches) from distances of 6 ft., 4
ft. and 3 ft. So I pinned a balloon next to my zombie target and tried
it. I placed one shot an inch or so away from the balloon at each
distance (see pictures).

said my bullet ricocheted off the balloon (joke).

Balloon Still Didn't Pop
THE BALLOON NEVER POPPED!
All it did was shake a little bit each time I shot. That's not what I
I expected it to pop for sure at the 3 ft. distance, but NO.
So Why Did His Balloon Pop and Mine Didn't?
His 45 caliber blanks give out more GRS than my 9mm reloads.
The balloon that he used may have been fully "blown up" and
stretched to near it breaking point, making it easier to pop (mine
Maybe the shock wave or pressure from the blast helps pop the
