An unconfirmed video reportedly shows Russian SOF or a Russian private military company throwing caution to the wind as they demonstrate their small arms proficiency by whizzing bullets past each others’ heads and into each others’ ballistic plates.
The footage, if authentic, is certainly impressive, mainly from a circus sideshow standpoint. The primary points to takeaway are; these men are not scared to die, and they fully trust their buddies as well as their equipment.
