    I shot my Glock while going backwards.

    I took my Glock out today and shot it while going backwards. Nothing happened, still shot at point of aim. Didn't jam and ate everything I fed it, no problems of any kind. Wasn't sure it would so I had to find out for myself. Thought I'd mention it in case others were wondering.

    Sounds like the rotton body found draped over the Ak. They said it shot just fine once they washed off the maggots.

    If you shoot a Glock while going backward at 1200 fps, where will the bullet go?

    I believe muzzle velocity decreases as one moves away from the bullet's direction of travel. Studies have shown (Reloader #3855, June 1924) that, depending on the velocity of the rearward movement, bullet velocity may decrease by as much as 1-3 fps. At extended ranges, this could translate into a low miss. Paradoxically, when your assailants are riding Shetland ponies and you are retreating, you don't have to aim so low.

    depends on the velocity of the round as it exits the barrel and also which way the glock was facing when it was fired.

    If you assume that you are traveling in a straight line and that the velocity of the round is the same 1200 fps, relative to your frame of reference the bullet would appear to move away from you at 1200 fps. If you were standing on the ground observing, then from that frame of reference the bullet would appear to drop straight to the ground as soon as it leaves the barrel.
