If you can dodge a bullet, you can dodge a ball.

I think there are two ways to avoid a bullet: Watch where the barrel is aiming and dodge before the shot happens, or to predict when they will shoot and move away just before the shot is made.

This video naively only took this one approach

IF it is possible, I highly doubt it would be possible with just reflexes alone, or dynamic vision alone, prediction skills alone or distance alone it would take all of these to be mastered or at least require a high level of skill to factor in to an overall ability and even then it would be highly difficult and luck would be the most important factor, and the the skill of the gunman as well as the type of gun because forget dodging unless your at a long range or have good cover but for normal people at close range? I don't think so.

"I need to test if someone can possibly dodge a bullet", lets find a person that represents the average fat American and see if he can dodge a bullet. Nice logic. This is the equivalent of testing to see if hippos can do cartwheels. This experiment is rendered useless because the test subject isn't adequate. Whenever someone mentions "dodging a bullet" does a fat American come to mind? Or does a thin, quick minded, and fast paced martial artist come into mind?

He is not fully protected with shields, because the head part and neck is partially shielded, if i had used the gun.... That guy might had already dead

Am I the only one that saw the paintball gun? I see the barrel moving whenever he gets shot. I think the point is to shoot the gun, to create a blast, which will create a flash, that is connected to the paintball gun to shoot. Which is probably what he said at he beginning.

its not unrealistic for a sniper to be shooting at a target over 1000 meters which would for someone with good reflexs almost double the time that jamie had to dodge the last shot and then you could dodge it possibly by the sound but even then you probaly wont be aware of the sniper about to shoot at you and if you are ... well then why are you standing out in the open making yourself and easy target :-P

It is like goalkeeper against a penalty kick (soccer ball). You pretty much need to start doing things right before the ball (or in this case the bullet) is flying.

while it still wouldn't probably help someone dodge a real bullet. Jamie was standing flat footed which makes it harder to move quickly. If he was on his toes his reflexes would have been better.

Guys this isn't rocket science.
The average bullet travels 1,700 MPH and the speed of sound is 767 MPH, meaning that the bullet will hit him way before he even hears it.

'TheRestlessrogue' 2 weeks ago
you wont be able to dodge it just for the simple bullets fire at the speed of sound you see the flash of the gun but that bullet is already about 200yards out
Charis The Hedgehog
'Charis The Hedgehog' 2 weeks ago
At this point it doesnt really have to do with reflexes.
Your eyes cant even see the bullet to react to it.
So the only ways to dodge a bullet is:
prediction,stop time,be able to see at the speed of sound like speedsters and Sonic or whatever (The Flash kind of speedsters)

Conclusion, IF you can see a bullet coming from 500 yards away, you can dodge it. but it's unlikely that anyone realistically could.

Put a cs:go or starcraft player to the test then talk. Also it's not true to life because having adrenaline in your body when you're in war for example would enhance your reflexes!
Andrew Vasirov
'Andrew Vasirov' 3 weeks ago
It is possible to dodge bullets while moving/running, as the one sniping has to calculate the projected trajectory (or how you call it). During war, you don't wait for the flash to appear, you wait for the enemy to see you, then take cover, it is possible that the sniper would shoot while you are taking cover, outsmarting him if you can repeat the action. Trying these in video games is funny, and annoying for the shooter.

snipers dodge bullets all the time. Snipers commonly have tracer bullets to see where it goes, and that's how snipers dodge them. They see the green line from the tracer bullet, and roll out of the way.

No, its not really busted, because possible of highly trainning to have your reflex to be highly to be fast as you can, I am speaking like athlete skills or the person who is skill with the sword, that is right I am talking about the samurai and yes the hate about samurai and good boast stuff and so. Yea I know samurai lost against gun markmenship, but it doesn't mean a temp use the sword to split the bullet to dodge and using ur gun the same time, pretty much can be possible. Dodge maybe possible as always.
Silver Ingot
'Silver Ingot' 3 weeks ago
Does nobody realize that you need to count in bullet travel time?

Cuz the paint ball gun is closer to him and that cuts down the travel speed on the bullet...

Shoot him without a paint ball gun in front of his face 1 foot away
That'll give him time to get away

Well I don't think the myth was dodging a bullet after seeing the flash from the shot. People dodging bullets in movies are dodging from the intention of the shooter, like I see you arm pointing in that direction, so I move out of the path before you pull the trigger ^^

'daylondog' 4 weeks ago
Where as I agree with this test, dodging a bullet is near impossible, some of their tests I don't like because they aren't factoring in adrenaline. Now, I could be wrong, I'm not doing the test so I don't feel what they feel but on some their tests I feel like the outcome would be slightly different if they felt like they were actually in danger.
'MrSleepingtiger' 1 month ago
Well. You wouldn't be able to see the muzzle flash for sure. And by the time you hear the fire, the bullet from a sniper rifle could hit you twice. Maybe you have a better chance to dodge a bullet from a handgun from a closer proximity, because you see the finder pulling the triger, and you may be able to dodge the line of the bullet path before the trigger being pulled. Although writing it down I realize it's highly unlikely.
The Foxiest Pinnacle
surely just by moving the blank shooter back the necessary reaction time would be the same because it's light travelling that triggers the paintball gun

Matthew Crone
'Matthew Crone' 1 month ago
The reason this is so hard is it takes nearly 250 milliseconds for your eyes to see the muzzle shot, flip the image, send and send this image to your brain. Then your brain takes another 50-100 milliseconds to decode this information and send a message to your muscles to move. Then it takes another 75 milliseconds for this information to reach your brain, by this point the bullet has already traveled approximately 350 yards out of the 400. therefore you only have about 50 millisecond for your muscles to move your 175 pounds of body mass out of the way. Making if also Physically impossible to dodge the bullet.

Logic explanation: unless you see the bullet flying from 500 meters away, it is not possible to dogde a bullet. Why? This dude tries to dodge the bullet by its sound but the speed of sound is 340 meters per second while the speed of the bullet is about 2 - 4 times faster than the sound, so by the time he hears something to start reacting, the bullet already get him.

'OnideusMadHatter' 2 months ago
The trick isn't to dodge the bullet, the trick is to dodge the actions of the shooter. That is, where is the shooter looking and is he pulling the trigger. You can dodge the pull of the trigger, because it's the movement of a finger, you can't dodge a bullet though once it has been fired.
Billy Celli
'Billy Celli' 2 months ago
You could dodge a bullet. It would just have to be under the right conditions. Say around dusk. Lets say you are 1000-1200 yards out from the enemy. The enemy has a 308. You would have a second and a half to move maybe even two seconds. (depending on what grain bullet and how much it slows in flight) . At dusk you would see the muzzle flash. Its a one in a million situation but to say its impossible makes no sense. A second and a half to move is if the bullet stayed at 2700-2800fps the whole way. But thats obviously not what would happen. I just don't even know how to begin doing math for that.

Jaime was smarter about dodging than Adam. Turn and retreat gets your bulk out of the way faster than leaping sideways.
'kamikaze00007' 2 months ago
I'm surprised nobody seems to mention the fact that the guy actually doing the dodging here in this test is actually altering his focus and attention from the muzzle flash to the gun that's actually in front of them before they could dodge. Since the bullet itself isn't from the tip of the flashing muzzle, it's pretty much like the bullet itself teleported the whole way up to the actual paintball gun's muzzle where it gets fired up close. In terms of milliseconds and reaction time based on many factors like a human's cognitive focus and it's effectivity, there's a big discrepancy that invalidates this test's results for me (at least on the paintball side). The dodging done and being tested here relies on a human's visual cognitive speed in combination to reflexes and movement impulse speed. If he could see the flash but has to change his sights towards the tip of another barrel in order to begin tracking the coming projectile, it's much more difficult to say it's an apples to apples test.
