When I was deployed to Iraq they would shoot guns off for weddings, soccer games (if their team won), and other celebratory functions.

Then you'd hear about bullets coming back down and hurting/killing someone innocent.
Terminal velocity for a bullet like the 7.62 is about 200mph if shot straight up in the air. I wouldn't want to get hit by anything going 200mph.
