    Aerial Firing Hazards

    A few days back, I visiting a friend of mine who is a surgeon, and he told me about a surgery he had done earlier that day. A boy had been brought to him with a bullet lodged in his jaw. He had been hit by that bullet after it pierced the windshield of his car, which he was driving when the incident happened. Surprisingly, neither the boy nor anyone else with him heard the gunshot. But subsequent investigations revealed, that the bullet which was from an AK 47, had been shot at a wedding function which taking place in DHA Phase 5. The boy was driving near Marina Club. The distance as the crow flies was about 2 miles.

    This was the first bullet. The second bullet, also from an AK47 went through the roof of the car, through the rear seat, and got lodged in the metal panel between the fuel tank and the seat.

    This lad and the other people in the car were plain simple lucky. For the first bullet could have easily pierced his eye or gone through his chest or shoulder, and the second one might have even set he car on fire, if it had pierced the fuel tank.

    So gentlemen please beware, and also inform other about the hazards of aerial firing.

    the culprit should be beaten with a leather belt for injuring a person while fulfilling his desire, firing in the city/which is not allowed(firing in all cities is banned)

    Aerial firing is crazy !! specially in cities , this culture should be discouraged and any incident of aerial firing should be reported immediately to authorities....... The sad part is most of us tend to take part in aerial firing !!
    Over the years I have matured and I avoid aerial firing , infact I prefer staying indoors on ocassions like , new years , chand raat , 14th August, cricket matches etc ..

    Father of a friend of mine was hit in the chest, while he was sleeping in open air during load shedding. luckily bullet stuck in his rib cage and just missed the heart.

    Careless, aerial firing is not only stupid, but can also be prohibited in islam. Islam has a specific code of ethics regarding weapon handling.

    Once a sahabi was carrying arrows with their tails in masjid nabawi, Rasollah SAW told him to hold it with their heads lest they may harm others.

    Sometimes I feel being callous about islam has left as uncivilized.

    Well, thats my 2 cents, others may disagree.

    People often fire at their roofs to alarm others that this house is not safe to enter. If people does Ariel firing for this reason then they should only fire 12 GUAGE # 8 OR similar bird shot cartridge, it also make big bang than bullet and does not harm any one.

    Aerial firing is criminal and there is no justification for it, whatsoever. Unfortunately, I have seen many so called civilized and well educated people doing aerial firing on marriages etc. Somehow, they behave like absolute illiterates on that occasion :|

    Turumti bhai, thanks for sharing the information :)

    +1 PUNJTANI on Ariel shooting hazards, it is indeed a criminal act & there is no second opinion.
    but kindly reconfirm this phenomena as 7.62 cannot make a human target air IMHO

    I second Ahmad brother's comments.The girl would have not been thrown air-borne upon impact,the people at the scene must have exagerrated the situation.

    Aerial firing is dangerous if bulets are fired at an angle of 45 or less. Try to fire the bullets above 60 degree if you cant stop yourself.
    Courage is doing what you are afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you are scared.
