Considering, the first machine gun built was sold by its demonstration of
it cutting down a try... why did you bother. History 101.

Author Sir Hunter ( ago)
bet ya a 50 cal could tear a tree down

Author ed hondo ( ago)
I remember when in the army we had to qualify with the m60 the target
was about 100 yards out behind that was a field over grown with weeds ..
after everyone shooting all day I noticed the weeds were cut like a lawn
mower .. smooth like a flat top hair cut .

For the people wondering the reason why it has more then 1 barrel is so it
can shoot faster and dont overheat as fast.

This right here has the ability with a .30-caliber clip to disperse with 30
bullets within half a second. Thirty magazine clip in half a second.

Mini guns are faster and more fun than a chainsaw

Now cut down trees with the Tsar-bomb

From now on, this should be the standard lumberjack's tool.

i thot machine guns were illegal?

these assholes with millions in budget can't buy a slow motion camera?

It is not a smart idea to shoot at a tree because there's a slight chance
that the bullet could bounce back and hit you.

Author FurryEskimo ( ago)
Came here thinking of "The Last Bastion" (OverWatch)

Author M Blake Jr ( ago)
LMAO, that's how fast libtards think ar15s shoot

Author M Blake Jr ( ago)
that's expensive, probably 50 bucks a sec

Author Onigiri Izumi ( ago)
How women pee that's how their aim goes ...*sigh*

Author American Knight ( ago)
I came here after Blizzard's Overwatch short for Bastion

Author Yuan Wang ( ago)
wow these ppl's weapon discipline is absolutely atrocious

Author motanelustelistu ( ago)
Yeah.Good ideea to test the stupidest idea of some american idiots.
Did you forget they are living thing and they are YOU'RE LONG LOST COUSINS
(they sare 30% of DNA with humans) ?
Just go shoot the stupid fat americans,more so the ones that asked this.
You'll be faaaaaar better of.

This is the right weapon for self defense in a home invasion.Every
household sould be equipped with one.Are they affordable for the average
homeowner ?

Author super1million11 ( ago)
this gun does what liberals think an ar-15 will do

Author potato owner ( ago)
I like how gun makers have a great sense of irony "mini gun"

Author Joe Wilhelm ( ago)
A Browning M2 Ma Duece probably could have done it faster.

Author 2 wheeled demon ( ago)
they should sell these at Walmart or Academy

Author typical sniper ( ago)
you can do it with an ar15.

Author EGru1 ( ago)
imagine the effects on human targets.....not much left

Author Andrew B ( ago)
I wonder just what percentage of the bullets actually hit?

Author Skitt R6 ( ago)
She made that mini gun look good have to love the stance.

Author BangBangBye ( ago)

Now I know what to do when my chainsaw blade breaks.

Author Violet Grace ( ago)
A couple million dollars wasted on cutting down a couple of trees... not
bad, not bad, pretty smart.

Author Austin0777 ( ago)
before I watch this video I'm going to say that I can personally confirm
this myth. I've done it with a shotgun before on an 8 inch wide tree. it
took a whole box of birdshot but it did the job. so I'm guessing with the
amount of rounds per minute that a minigun can put out you could cut down a
giant sequoia with enough bullets

Author Army Dog ( ago)
roung rounds real rounds are 5mm rounds

Author austin kha ( ago)
Holy shot! How much did each one of those bullets cost?

Author 1Klooch ( ago)
Love the Combat Boots/breezy Summer Dress combo!

Author Majin Snake ( ago)
Well, this gun delievers much freedom :-D

Author Aasher Ahmed ( ago)
that tree must be tree-a-fied

Author Winny Han ( ago)
a chain saw uses less energy. stupid shit

Author Benjamin ( ago)
Lumberjacks should just use miniguns. Much more effective.

Author Argonwolfproject ( ago)
I want to see how long it takes a CO2 laser to cut down a tree :D

Author Thomas Clow. ( ago)
Could totally do it with a machine gun.

Author Brett Duffy ( ago)
did they pay the $200 tax stamp on them

Author Spunge Bub ( ago)
you can get the same effect with a

Author heartfire451 ( ago)
Why do that to some nice tree when there are so many child molesters,
rapists, violent criminals they could test that gun on?

Author Adam Mullarkey ( ago)
Somehow, I can't help but feel like a chainsaw would work just as well.

Author Shadow Knight ( ago)
Try using a 50 bmg.

Author Zuhair Soosor ( ago)
They could just have used a .50 cal with standard ammo to chop that tree
down no problem

Author Paul Ryder ( ago)
This is extreme overkill. I have cut down a tree with 4 30 round magazines
from a STEN.: a 9 mm 550 RPM sub-gun. Takes about 30 seconds. While my
experiment was a really stupid waste of money, I admit these people
completely out-classed me in ridiculously waste.

Author Dave Dowling ( ago)
Did it with less than 30 rounds 7.62 from 100ft.

Author Kevin ( ago)
Well it's stupidly obvious that'd work, even a shity handgun would chip
away a tiny bit, so after a very long time, the tree would fall.

Author SaNe Crimes ( ago)
know you no don't hide behind a tree if it getting shot at by a mini gun

Author TheAponymous ( ago)
Children in Africa could of eaten that car...

Author WorldOfSENILE ( ago)
This is just disgusting. Why the fuck are they killing mother nature and
High fiving about it?

Author rob ribant ( ago)
It will not be long until we see some crazed Jerk-face pulling up at some
jam packed event with that gun and just make Hell rain in under a minute.
It's coming, you all know it is.

Author ScottsMcHappy ( ago)
I bet there was a snake in the tree XD

Author sagesaria ( ago)
My aesthetic: smart women in pretty sundresses shooting down trees with
miniguns :)

Author gutz1981 ( ago)
"What happened?"
"I saw it!"
"You saw what?"

Author Alex Sxtx ( ago)
i guess any gun with the same amount of bullets would do the work - just in
a different time

Author Out Of Place Ninja ( ago)
I know a shotgun can fell a small tree, seen it with my own eyes. Also good
for shooting down branches high in a tree. Apparently, a shotgun is
sometimes used to shoot down genetic mutations in some trees so they can be
rooted and sold.

Author Jack the Gestapo (SS-Sturmbannfuhrer) ( ago)
sry for asking stupid question here but....why did they call this thing a
minigun? they're not mini, instead they're big as hell. to fool the soviets

Author The Ramblings of a Nobody (83 years ago)
The logic here is as long as your bullets are going THROUGH the trunk, you
CAN chop down the tree, it would just take a while

Author Jude Walters ( ago)
Watches this... Tells myself, oh yeah? Gets on battlefield. Shoots a tree
down with a pistol...... That's how it's done.

Author Doctortomsvideos ( ago)
I'm surprised with the recoil control. I know it it mounted but still. I
bet some real hard engineering went into that aspect of the gun.

Author Lars Van Den Broek ( ago)
that was expensive

Author bobs ( ago)

Author TheHog25 ( ago)

Try the MG42 its nick name is the Buzzsaw made by the Nazis in world war 2

Most Badass way to cut down a tree !

Author Charlie The Turtle ( ago)
So people think cost of bullets are a problem to the US government. They
could fire this for 24 hours at NO COST that will be noticed on the defence

Author Brage Register ( ago)
It's a fucking Minigun. Of course it's going to cut a tree in half. And uuu
you cut a tree in half with plenty of other guns.

Author The Protector ( ago)
Still not the Gau-8 :P Which.. a single bullet could down a tree XD But a
beast nevertheless

I cut a boat in half with a minigun a few years ago

Americans and their affinity with guns...

Author Koa Kulani ( ago)
Mini guns aren't that 'mini'. Why do they call them that? What a pile of
brass that thing spits though! $1000.00 worth of ammo in 5 seconds! Badass!

Author willywonkadailyblah ( ago)

Author lysander ( ago)
don't forget to pick up the brass !!!!!!!!!!!!!

A minigun is the ultimate tree killer? How about a Nuclear Bomb?

Author James Hardman ( ago)

Author ThePoopMaster01 ( ago)
I think Barack Obama was on the show once right?

That's so expensive

Author Taylor “Savage Lord” Has ( ago)

Author mich ael ( ago)

Check her panties I am certain they are wet right now

Author Tombs Clawtooth ( ago)
Don't need a machine gun to cut down a tree. It's just a lot faster than a
semi auto.

Author 900bz ( ago)
Im actually shocked that they had to test this because aint it obvious?

Author Joshua Pavao ( ago)
everyone in comment section talking about cost have very bad mathematics
and economics....first carrie was wrong...this is a .223 version....not a
.308 version.....1000 rds of .223 is about $280.00 on the internet from
lucky gunner or cheaperthandirt. com so a full minute =$280.00 × 3=
$840.00. YOUR WELCOME :)

Author Iamthedudeman00 ( ago)
What myth? You can cut down any tree with any working fire arm as long as
you have enough bullets and enough time! The mini gun just does it faster
than most of other guns!

Author Tanner AK ( ago)
I once shot down a little birch tree with about a five inch diameter. It
took about a half hour and a couple 10/22 25 round mags.
