Smells like destruction!



This is so cool! I love how Kari's shooting in that flouncy little dress, it just cracks me up. I can just picture her waking up in the morning, looking in her closet and thinking to herself, "Now what should I wear to work today?" knowing the whole time that "going to the office" means trekking out to the desert to shoot a machine gun. Mythbusters is a great show. Explosions, firearms, weird experiments - we're big fans. Plus, that mustache guy? Kind of hot.

Mythbusters is great.

Now if I could just find a girl even a little bit like Kari Byron....

I'm still a little ticked at them for the stunt where they left a dead hog in a perfectly good corvette, but this is interesting on a couple levels:

1. Minigun. 'Nuff said.

2. Wearing a flouncy dress for firing a machine gun is a pretty cool fashion statement, especially doing so and emerging without brass burns.

3. This doesn't have any of the normal, for lack of a better description, San Franciscans with Guns Vibe. I dunno if they've lightened up, or I have, or what, but whenever I'd catch the show in the past, if guns came up it seemed like there was this automatic switch from the sort of energy they had on, say, wrecking a car to this more subdued sort of "I don't like this and don't want to be here" thing. Especially from Kari. "It smells like destruction" in that tone is a total 180 and frickin' cool.

Mayhaps it's time to give the show another shot.

Please forgive the overage of testosterone here, but:

Kari iz teh hawtness.

Something about that girl, flouncy dress, and a Dillon.

Schwing!!!

And she pulls it off like it's no big deal, but she still gets excited enough to make it not look faked. What a woman.

"Kind of hot?"

Well, sure, if you've always wanted to do it with a walrus.

hott!!!!

I could just smell the smoke...

Yeah, I like that show, too. I've already planned to practice shooting a dress and heels, because if I'm ever met with a spot of bother, the odds are that is what I'll be wearing. I love that she's wearing those Granny Clampett boots, though - that really makes the whole look. She's my kind of gal!

And the "smells like destruction" line got a big guffaw out of me, too.

I want their job.

Nice!

But at 6000 rounds a minute, I couldn't afford many minutes of that.

Still ...

DirtCrashr said...

It took a minute? Dillon needs to invent a gun that shoots chainsaws.
It's almost enough to make me get Cable though...

I'm very amazed that we did not get to see Kari doing the hot brass fandango. The open tops of those boots were just crying for a few select pieces to fall in there.
Great mount on that gun, no vibration or jumping at all.
Sweet shooting.

One of my favorite shows, especially since they manage to blow up something in just about every episode.

I never got that impression that Kari didn't like guns on the earlier episodes, just that she normally didn't use them.

Hate to burst their bubble but a couple of Brits proved this myth "confirmed" a couple of years ago.

And they used a 1916 .303 Vickers Gun firing 450 rpm.

Still they aren't as pretty as Ms Byron flouncy dress or not.

Two trees behind my regular targets have fallen after a while using bolt-actions and semi-auto's. From the few episodes I've seen, they don't know much about firearms.

Love those mythbusters.

Uh-

Strategypage had an article about this in the past year. A 12 gauge will work too, but they found you need less .50 cal ammo from ma deuce.

And they weren't just doing trees, it was cinder-block buildings. Took a little longer, but they got here.
