Remember the 400 rednecks who shot their guns at ‘tree witches’ for Jesus? No? It was for New Years – January 2nd – how could you forget?
Check it out:
I was on the receiving end of some hate from Cherryville natives – and my comments section was getting pretty heated. Over and over, people were claiming that this insanity was actually safe. Admittedly, I erroneously thought they were shooting live rounds. Turns out they were using ‘black powder and wad’, a DIY ‘blank’.
One of my readers – Beth – just made me smile. Beth wrote to the folks in charge at the Cherryville shooters. She respectfully asked them why they held their guns in such a peculiar manner. If you watch the video, you’ll notice several people falling over or otherwise getting injured.
But Beth got their leadership to brag about the unsafe act! More like this, readers!
The reason the shooters shoot that way is to prevent injury. The blast from the hammer area along with the recoil will break your arm if you would hold it in a normal position shooting position.
It’s like having a bomb go off in your hand.
Thanks for the question.

I hereby reinstate my original question: WHERE THE HELL ARE THE POLICE?!?
18 hours of bombs going off in people’s hands?!? REALLY?
