DIY rainbow using a 12-Gauge shotgun


There are several ways to make your own rainbow -- it's a simple trick of refracting the light with water. You've probably made one as a kid using a garden hose.

Well, here's a new, perhaps more adult method using a 12-gauge shotgun. Although a shotgun rainbow may sound like an oxymoron, this woman shows us it is entirely possible.

By simply shooting a few rounds in rapid succession it into a creek, the resulting spray of water with light hitting it at just the right angle produces the spectrum of light. Check it out:

As Outdoor Life points out, this is a pretty neat trick but it's still a don't-try-this-at-home endeavor (kids, stick to the garden hose):

Kirsti, bless her soul, has no hearing protection and is wearing sunglasses instead of shooting glasses. Oh yeah, and there's a large, pellet-ricocheting, rock wall on the other bank.

Let's not rain on Kirsti's parade though. It's Monday and Kirsti perked up my day with my first shotgun rainbow experience in this 25 second video.
