    This is the best gun safety video for anyone exploring different ammunition and what to do when injured be shrapnel

    That safety glass saved his eye. It must be a high quality product because the thing that broke a skull to pieces only shredded it and the pieces of the broken glass dindn't even go in his eye.

    I talked to my stepdad about this and he said is 2006 when he was deployed they actually had to git rid of all these rounds Because there was to much power behind them and they were deemed not safe and they sold them.

    Take care brother, get well soon

  • laws2ewun1t

    Did anyone else tear up during this? This is my first exposure to KB I came here from Demo Ranch. So thankful things played out the way that they did.

    God works in mysterious ways bro. Sometimes he takes you without notice, other times he gives you a reminder that life isn't guaranteed and it can end at any time. Almost dying changes you, makes you see what's truly important in life. Some think it's money and power, when it's really happiness and loved ones that truly matter.

    at 3:17/3:18 something is flying forward when you "cap" the gun....could that be an issue for what happened? I am glad God protects you.

    Scott, I'm wondering that maybe you could wear some additional protection when doing more dangerous stuff. Maybe a bullet proof vest as a basic and when shooting powerful calibers in stunts, perhaps activate the trigger from a distance, preferably behind a polycarbonate barrier. Maybe this is too much, but really try to do a risk analysis before shooting, considering what can go wrong in each scenario.

    This is good lesson, DO NOT USE TRASH GUNS. That gun is not made for anything but basic ball or hunting ammo. No way in hell you shoot military grade ammo. That would not have happened to a Barrett.

    Just glad you are ok man. That's the main thing, cause when guns go boom they don't always do so as gently as you walked away with. Count your blessings and enjoy the little things, cause they're what are most important right now. If I had to guess, I'd guess there was a problem with the sabots on those slap rounds. Could be an issue straight from the manufacturer.

    Thanks to God you still with us. Pretty Nasty accident. My friend here ask if there an extra measure steps that you put in place to avoid or minimize this kind of accident like Using a Bullet proof jacket when fire cal 50 or weight those ammo first trying to detect any different in them. Take good care of You and I hope you still have fast healing.

  • BancroftOutdoors

    The only thing I can relate is I got really bad scope bite and almost broke bone and I was bleeding intensely. I get what you mean by being former LEO you just go into this mode of taking care of the issue. Like a robot. I actually used one of my daughters diapers I found in my SUV and applied pressure as I headed to the ER. I’m really glad to see that you made it through this freak accident. Us at the demolitia aren’t done with you yet! 👊🏼

      Powder overload. That's what you get for using rounds from unknown sources. He should know better....well... he does now!

      Some genius thought it was a good idea to increase the amount of powder, which is why you don't buy rounds from unknown sources.

    All that damage and cost from shooting at a fire hydrant . . . What’s wrong with you? I think God was trying to tell you something pal . . . And he couldn’t say it any louder . . . Get help with your addiction! Guns do not have any place in God’s Kingdom, and you are in total denial if you believe otherwise.
