    **CAUTION - GRAPHIC** - Results of an exploding shotgun barrel

    Only click on this if you don't mind a bit of gore - I thought this was worth posting up as there are some in the shooting community who think its fine to operate a bone dry shotgun. Ignorance = mangled hands :thumbs

    I wonder if He had some 20g mixed in with His 12g and accidentally loaded that into the gun - then the classic trap is that can slip down past the chamber and have a 12g loaded behind it - making a nice barrel-bomb. I don't reckon it was from firing a slug through a choked barrel. Apparently they're rifled slugs so they can go through chokes (don't quote me on that tho)

    Anyone who wants to fire slugs through a shotgun should just buy a rifle in my opinion.

    Sorry, but I see this as out of context.....There is no information on the scenario. Only:

    Friend had a little accident, not sure if it was a gun malfunction, a malfunction due to him not cleaning his gun, or just bad luck. But the barrel on his Mossburg 500 not only cracked but exploded. Doctor's are attempting to skin graff or however they would fix it right now.


    In fact the "poster even went so far as to say "not sure if". Bearing in mind it was a Mossberg 500, I suspect the fault was at the butt end.

    I will sit up and take notice when some evidence is available.
    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    Graphic Gore!

    Was that it?

    Looked like a minor amputation to me.

    Wait till you see a man trying to push his own intestines back into his stomach ..... that's Gore!

    Cheers
