Penn & Teller"s double Bullet Catch

I simply got ago from penn & Teller"stouring magic show. These "bad boys of magic" placed on a quite entertainingshow, ranging from cheesy map tricks to relocating illusion-enhanced storiesto death-defying stunts. The last one to be a twin bullet catch: castle fire.357 caliber handguns at each other and catch both bullets in your teeth.The phase starts separated by a yellow line, Penn and Teller on eitherside and also never crossing the line. As Teller never ever speaks, penn asks theaudience if anyone is familiar with firearms, gift a soldier, cop, targetshooter, etc. Top top this night, a correction officer and also yours truly (!)were picked to inspect the equipment ("How execute you know about guns?" "Trainedat Gunsite and Lethal force Institute!" "Excellent!"). Going come oppositehalves that the stage, us examined the Python .357 revolvers (looked perfectlynormal and showed wear of age and also use) with attached laser sights, selectedone round every from a container, marked the bullets v our initials andshells v made-up icons (mine a triangle v a dot in the center),checked glass panes, and generally confirmed that the props were real. Iwas convinced!Penn proceeded to recite Cooper"s four Rules come the audience, emphasizinggun safety...which they climate violated most blatantly (at least they tolda thousand human being what the rules are). Relocating off stage, we watched asthe goofy duo donned bulletproof vests & helmets & goggles. Theyturned top top the laser sights, aimed thru the two panes that glass at each other"smouths, and also fired simultaniously. We went back to the stage, note thebullets in the magicians" teeth, took the bullets (hmm...dubious honorof having Penn Jillette spit a bullet right into my hand), showed the initials,verified the post-firing rifling marks and also powder residue, then took thematching spent covering from the ideal revolver on the contrary sideof the stage, sniffed the shell"s solid distinctive odor of total smoke,noted the distinct markings, and also checked the distinctive break patternon the glass panes.I"ve studied guns, and also I"ve studied magic.
