    3000 mi/s is only 1.584e7 FPS. They probably make airsoft guns that shoot harder than that :hsughno:

    I wish AR rounds moved that fast. You could shoot from coast to coast in a second. That would be awesome.

    :rofl: 3000 mi/s is almost 2% the speed of light and would be *by far* the fastest macroscopic thing ever accelerated by man. :rofl:
