Watch This Man Fire An AR-15 Off His Nose To Prove It Doesn't Cause Bruising or PTSD

Last week, New York Daily News reporter Gersh Kuntzman fired an AR-15 at a shooting range and claimed that it caused, among other things, bruising and "temporary PTSD."


The recoil bruised my shoulder. The brass shell casings disoriented me as they flew past my face. The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick. The explosions — loud like a bomb — gave me a temporary case of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable.

It took the internet about two seconds before collapsing into giggles at the absurdity of this claim, and pointing out how offensive it is to people who actually have PTSD.


A man named Chris Waller decided to prove how ridiculous Kuntzman's claims of receiving bruises was in the best way possible--by firing an AR-15 off his nose.

Watch the incredible video here (and please don't try this at home):

The AR-15 is specially designed to not have much of a recoil--and having shot one before with the Townhall team, I can confirm that they're not all that difficult to shoot. (And I bruise pretty easily.)
