I posted a link from myth busters. Your post about losing momentum is very misleading. If you will go back and read what mythbusters actually said, it is far more likely for the bullet to maintain momentum and fall to the ground with lethal force. It is dangerous and stupid to shoot in the air. Please don't give out dangerous advice
