WATCH: Turkmenistan president blows up explosive barrels with car-mounted MACHINE GUN in latest bizarre stunt

The president of Turkmenistan has featured in yet another of his grandiose displays of marksmanship, this time sending a group of explosive barrels to the afterlife with his trusty SUV-mounted MINIGUN.

Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov has made something of a name for himself with his growing portfolio of bizarre stunts, partaking in everything from rapping, to singing, horse-riding, race-car drifting and, of course, shooting.

Following a recent meeting of the State Security Council, Berdimuhamedov decided to outdo even himself by holding a spectacular shooting demonstration for assembled military and law enforcement personnel. 

Berdimuhamedov was filmed obliterating a pyramid of explosive barrels with a minigun mounted on top of an SUV in a desert setting, as the assembled crowd celebrated his achievement with polite applause. 

He also treated the onlookers to something of a pistol-shooting showcase complete with human-shaped targets.

However, not everyone online was convinced by the president’s shooting prowess, it seems.
