    One man shoots a .45 while standing on a treadmill while another shoots 9mm while standing on roller skates. The treadmill will move backward to match the velocity of the bullet. Which man is wearing the more effective camo pattern?

    Discuss.

    At 850 fps rearward velocity, the 45 shooter will become a camo pattern.

    Your explanation was spot on, especially about the tire speeds and overcoming friction of the gear assemblies.

    I had to sit in bed and stare at the ceiling for awhile before I realized ya’ll were correct.

    I shall go forth now and eat some humble pie.

    Thanks Will for the brain teaser.
