    Was the whistling sound added to the video in post-editing? Surely that can't be the sonic wake of the bullet ricocheting back to the shooter?

    Dang thing sounds like a diving Japanese Zero in the WWII videographies.

    Did you guys see the dust that muzzle blast kicked up on that thing?

    BTW that guy may have been dead if his head was about 4 more inches to the left. He was lucky that it hit the muffs instead.

    I would have immediately proceeded to the quickemart and bought a couple of lottery tickets.

    Nope, that's really the sound the now subsonic bullet made as it tumbled end over end after richocheting. A .22 will do that too, just not as loud.

    A supersonic bullet would make a loud crack or pop as it passed by. If you ever hear it take it as your cue to duck.

    If you ever hear it, it's actually a cue that you should have ducked, but the bullet passed without hitting you.
