Minigun Shoot

Sometimes Scott Mayer just sends me random stuff that he’s doing. From the looks of it, he seems to be hanging around some Mini-Guns. His note says that this particular weapon is only firing at half-speed of 3000 rounds per minute.

    It’s filmed in slow motion. It goes to regular speed right at the end.

    • I debated cutting some of the slow-mo out of it, but I was too fascinated watching this thing run to think clearly at the time.

      Neat video, Scott.

      Cool, but could not see where the rounds were hitting most of the time.

    Some people have all the fun! 😉

    While doing a DoD security contract in Iraq in 2006, we had Army QRF teams on call for extreme emergencies. One of them actually showed up with a mini mounted on one of their Humvees. I’d seen them on some of the SOC team vehicles operating out of the Radwaniyah compound, but never one on a regular Army vehicle like this, so I can only guess it was an unauthorized modification. Of course, this was back when everything was going full tilt, before the bureaucracy had time to impose a lot of rules.
