    Hahaha, you described that so well that I can instantly picture that scene. I bet it was like someone letting off a red dirt bomb inside the cab hahaha. That reminds me of when I shot my friends M107A1. We were at a nice, private gun range shooting at a table that was under a roof to keep the sun and rain off of the shooter. I only shot it once and the concussion from it instantly evacuated my sinuses. I will never shoot one of those ever again under a covered anything. My sinuses were stopped up before shooting it, not so much afterwards. I don't know if it would have been that big of a difference on me if I would have had clear sinuses to begin with but I'm not willing to try that again either way haha

    Muzzle brake doesn't really affect the shooter, made not to do it; those behind and to the side are in the noise area.

    Yeah, we were side by side with identical AKM-47s.

    I've heard you never want to fire an arm in the cabin of a vehicle, which is surprising to me. I had a bouquet of balloons in a car and popped them one after another and it was very muffled. Not at all like it would be in a house.

    A long true story

    Jim,
    I had a some what similar situation where I fired from inside the cab but under different circumstances. Not nearly as painful as the 'Barn Stall' shot. Probably best placed in the Pay Back category.
    I nearly deafened myself and a friend in early 86. I had long been after a 62 step side and my Father found a near perfect project truck he'd brought up from Muscles Shoals AL (sp?). We were towing home a 1962 Chevy stepside short bed from just outside Nashville, TN. Pulling it back here to MI, with my 1985 F100 300 6 cylinder.(loved that motor). Middle of the night so there was little traffic. When you'd see a hill ahead you had to get some giddy up to stay up to speed.
    Came upon a full size late 70's 4 door with 4 'Heavily Tanned' guys in it that were looking for trouble. They'd get ahead of us and slow down so I'd move around then they'd speed up behind us while flashing their high beams so I'd pull to the right lane. Seemed like this went on for an hour. My friend gave them the WTF finger gesture while we were out in the left lane. Looking over my right shoulder I seen the rear drivers side passenger pull a pistol and fired 2 or 3 shots toward us then they sped off. At the time he fired he was at my 5 so I was trying to speed up while pulling us over beyond the left shoulder of the road. I have no doubts he was trying to hit one of us. After they had sped away we pulled over and parked on the right shoulder. A quick look over showed there were 2 bullet holes in the ole chevy, one in the right rear fender the other hole above it thru the bed side. Holes about what you'd expect from a .45. When we got back on the road it was still before sun rise but getting lighter. We drove on and were nearly out of Kentucky when we crested a hill. Ahead of us we could see their car pulled to the shoulder with the hood up over heating. All were at the front looking at the motor. As we got to their side I had slowed almost to a stop, then told my buddy to cover his ears and duck. I leaned over and put a few into their side glass as they ran for the brush I emptied the rest in to their grille and radiator from my rear sliding window. Up the road we had stopped in Northern Ohio at a rest stop. We were maybe 30 miles from Mi. When we came out there was a Ohio State Trooper pulled next to us just standing next to the old Chevy. I knew I hadn't hit anyone but was plenty nervous. Trooper smiled at us and asked how the trip had been. Before I answered I noticed he had his finger poked in to the bullet hole on the fender. He said that hole looks fresh no rust........ He's standing on the right side of our rig, as I told him it had been a long night and we still had a couple hours to go. As he was in the middle of saying be careful out there my buddy opened the door to get in and I heard the metallic tink tink sound of a couple spent casings hitting the pavement. I know the Trooper heard them too but he went on to say it had been a good night as they had caught 2 Federal fugitives whose car had gave out at the Ohio Kentucky state line. Needless to say I was never so happy to see that MI state line. Even better to get home, but still spent a few days saying HUH?
    After being home a week or so I noticed a glancing shot over the cab of the Ford just above where I was sitting/driving. After cleaning out the old Chevy truck bed we found the remains of a .45 ball round heavily distorted. I kept it in the glove box.

    Be Careful Out There.....

    I had a similar situation in Fla. back in the 80's. Going from DeLeon Springs to Tampa on the back roads late at night, a couple of bored locals started playing the slow down-speed up game. When I got tired of it I stopped in the middle of the road and stepped out with a .22 mag revolver. going, going, gone!
