Well as he stated in the video, now I don't have to try it out for myself. I don't think I would have thought do something like that anyway...too risky.

It must be a fun. But I have never got it actually - why people like so much to shoot in stuff?
Watermelons, bottles, etc?

For me personally fun is to group few shots in a dime from as far as possible. I don't get excited when
something blows out of the proportion...

I think the point is to illustrate how strong the bottles are and what it takes to pierce them.

I appreciate videos like this, gives a sense or reassurance.

Agreed. Glad to see this. Makes me feel a lot better about my 4500 psi tanks being stored in my basement.

....After the first shots bounced off, I don't think I'd go anywhere near them, let alone kneel down beside them ..... Like, if the charge doesn't blow, do you walk up and see why not ? ....Gutsy move there .........Just me, maybe

A definite agreement upon this statement. Gutsy hmmm think not. More like a lack of self preservation when dealing with high pressure. JMHO

From watching the video I felt he appeared to lack the knowledge concerning just how dangerous his 'type' of testing was.

Lack of knowledge can get you seriously injured in many sports.

There are all sorts of "FAIL" videos on the net - many seem happen in Russia - LOL.

This one could have had very serious consequences.
