      Have kids consider how the explosion of powder behind a bullet effectively pushes the bullet out the barrel of the gun. (What else occurs?) The “push pushes back” principle demands that there there is an equal push of the gun backwards, which is known as recoil. The following video shows examples of what can happen if one is not well positioned and braced in preparation for the recoil.
