I've never made a good decision in a hurry... triple check everything. Even if you KNOW that round has been removed from the chamber, OPEN it and do a visual before getting back in the vehicle. And the driver checks all the passengers' rifles. Even though it seems stupid and redundant. That sorta thing.

Before muzzleloading season for elk, a friend was going to let me shoot his gun since he could not make it to the sight in. Before giving it to me, he got a "bad feeling about it," and took it in to his gunsmith friend who said that the back of the gun would have blown open if someone shot it. I probably would have ended up like that guy or worse.

Whoa.

Didn't the Mythbusters disprove that very photograph? They plugged barrels of all kinds of guns with all kinds of stuff and could never get that banana-peel effect. The only one that came close was a Damascus barreled shotgun with a cap WELDED over the end.

That is what I thought too, but how else would that barrel get like that?

Hmmm...Don't know? Got this from a buddy that works for the state and gets a lot of information from police (state, local, etc.). I assumed it came from one of them but I'll check.
