Yes, Bullets eventually fall from the sky

You might want to think twice about shooting your guns in teh air instead of just popping fireworks. John C was sitting in the pits in katy (TMGP) when bullet pierced his boot and foot.

yeah I saw that one, but the myth was if it was shot straight in the air at a 90 degree angle, which doubtfully anyone can do. They did say that if it was shot at a lesser angle, it would still keep it's speed and still be lethal

This happened at the racetrack in Katy. The races were over and some guys were shooting a gun off in the distance. Who knows where they were? You could hear it though.

The Mythbusters experiment only related to bullets fired perpendicular to the ground. They acknowledged the fact that falling bullets can and have killed people with a visit to a hospital and speaking with a doctor who has dealt with the phenomenon. But those cases involved bullets fired at an angle, not vertically.
