      This is really a very simple question that you should have learned the answer to in high school.

          While we are at it, let's use this opportunity to squash another misconception: Bullets that are fired straight up in to the air fall back to the earth at the same velocity (not true).

          Our captain told us the other night that if a gun is fired up in the air that the bullet can kill someone when the bullet falls back down to the earth. I held my tongue.

          Terminal velocity comes into play here. Just because the bullet travels up at 3000 ft/s (approx?) does not mean that it falls at the same speed. When it is returning, it only falls at about 150-200 ft/s, which is not lethal. Terminal velocity is when a bullet's weight equals the air resistance.

          Now, if the gun is fired at a low enough angle, then that changes the return velocity and it can be lethal, but we are talking about straight up and down in this circumstance.

            So that's how all those idiots survive. Maybe that's what makes them idiots. All that lead poisoning raining down.

              We used to have a reserve who was a nuclear engineer (at the power plant in town)

              We also had one that was an radio frequency emissions engineer.....(Rockwell Collins Radio is in our town) We always wanted to send to to court on a radar ticket and have the defense attorney question him about radar but the Sheriff wouldn't let us do it because he was just a reserve.
              Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

                  I've always wanted to go to law school, then render a legal opinion in court so when a defense attorney asks me where I went to law school, I could tell him :P

                  This came about after a fellow officer told someone it would be best if they took a breath test and he got hammered for "giving legal advice"

                      Oh and I beg to differ on the bullets falling and not being able to kill you. My last days as a trainee I was sitting in my car with the FTO schit chatten with another car on new years eve. In indianaolis the dumb f... like to shoot in to the air in celebration. One round landed on the roof of our car. It put a dent an inch deep in the car. Now i'm no exert but the damage to the car would have equated to a death sentance for a head shot.

The simple act of tossing an apple in the air could cause it to become a cannon ball sailing out the rear of the plane's fuselage.

                        That was funny...
