Flues Grade 1

The only thing that saved the gun was that the bullet was much smaller than the bore, and the gun recoiled freely. I'm amazed that it still locked up afterwards! The wood was missing from the top left before the shots.
Factory .50 BMG cartridge runs about 55,000 psi.

They found the .50 caliber slugs on the ground, under the table. They went off, in the gun, but, the cases had to be knocked out of the chamber.
I doubt anywhere near 55,000psi was generated with the sloppy way the chambers fit the .50 cal rounds. It was gutsy, and stupid. Barrels didn’t look to be 18” to me either. Gutsy, stupid, and against the law.

Best,
Ted

Somehow one thinks, with the accents and attitude towards gun safety, that this might actually be in the Balkans someplace..or maybe southern Turkey.

I did a 5 month job in California before retiring. went to the ranges I could find between San Diego and LA to shoot clays. I noticed a whole lot of these type guys hanging around the ranges. Even Kim Rhodes home range. Its no wonder why California gun owners have no voice when it comes to gun ownership. With so many Clowns like these The antis don't even have to try hard.

The scary part is when you encounter that type of mindset while hunting in the woods! Makes you want to continuously "check your six"!

I got back in camp one afternoon (Mt Frasier, CA) after getting shot at and a yahoo was talking about having three herd shots. I asked him how he missed an entire herd of deer 3x?? He laughed and said I heard something so I fired. One of the reasons I gave up hunting and yes the firearms were unloaded and secured at that point.
