Video: The Shotgun Balloon Drop
OutdoorHub Reporters 02.12.15
This does not look safe.
In fact, it looks like the complete opposite of safe. Disregarding a few basic firearm safety rules and just about every instinct to keep his limbs unbroken, daredevil Erik Roner attempts a “shotgun balloon drop” at 8,000 feet. The premise of the stunt is simple enough: strap yourself to a lawn chair, attach enough balloons to said chair to make it float, and then shoot them until you begin falling.
We hope the shotgun was empty and on safe when he tossed it during his descent.
