YouTube gun channel sensation “IraqVeteran8888” released a video on Wednesday detailing which guns are best for firing through thick brush.

The video titled, “What is a Brush Gun?” attempts to get to the bottom of one of the most frustrating things that can happen while hunting or just popping cans in the woods. (SLIDESHOW: Celebrate The Second Amendment With These Gorgeous Gun-Loving Women)

The video tests out rifles as small as a .22LR and as big as the Henry .45-70 All Weather rifle. The results are prettying convincing for what weapons work best in the even you know you’re going to be firing through some brush. (SLIDESHOW: These Sexy Women Are Celebrating Donald Trump Winning The Election)


It’s not surprising that the .22lr and .556 rounds were not capable of accurately hammering through the brush on a consistent basis. I can’t tell you how many times personally I’ve attempted fired my Ruger 10/22 through a brush situation only to get frustrated knowing how unlikely I am to hit the target. (SLIDESHOW: These Stunning Women In Camo Aren’t Leaving Much To The Imagination)

Moral of the story, if you’re going to fire the brush leave your .22, .223/.556 and other small caliber guns at home.
