This guy left his in somehow after cleaning and had a massive kaboom.
He was shooting a .17 VHA.


Yeah that's brass stuck in his face.

A cleaning jag.  You know, those things you screw onto the end of a cleaning rod to clean your weapons with.  You can see it sticking out of the end of the barrel in his picture.

I bet he wont do that again.

Complacency tends to rear its ugly head when we least expect it.

Whoopsie.  Guess I will triple-check the end of the Dewey rods when I'm done cleaning.

I get anxious if I don't see my cotton come out the barrel and I'll stop until I find it... What goes in the barrel has to come out the barrel.

People don't do the thumbnail in the breech and sight down the barrel to check cleanliness anymore?
This accident could never happen to me. Derp.

How do you even manage to get a jag in your barrel without the rod or cable...and then forget it's there?  Or did he get it stuck and just figure he'd shoot it out?

Sounds like it happened at the action. "Jag was still in the barrel, loaded a round and pulled the trigger, over pressure opened up the action and the brass hit him in the face."

I know, never say never, but my cleaning routine consists of using compressed air to do a final clean/dry of the barrel, then a visual of the rifling. I'm kinda OCD about it.

Wow.
That had to hurt.

As to OP, how do you manage to leave just the jag in the barrel?
Link Posted: 10/23/2014 4:09:02 PM EDT

Maybe patch was tight, unthreaded jag on withdrawal stroke?
