opps

This was forwarded from Honduras. It was their Barrett .50 cal. The round failed to fire and the Honduran soldier attempted to pull the bolt to the rear and it blew. The ammo was dated 1982, no info on Lot #. Bad day at the range!

NOTE TO SELF:

Avoid Honduran .50bmg ammo regardless of how great its priced.

nah! no need to waste money on one of those pens, a black sharpie will do the job, and a bandaid for the shooter of course

Hangfire coupled with really fucking unlucky timing?

Those pictures make me sad. I'd love to own a Barrett
Link Posted: 3/29/2009 11:59:11 AM EDT
After re-reading it seems to me that the soldier tried to clear a hang fire too soon and the weapon discharged while out of battery.
Link Posted: 3/29/2009 12:00:45 PM EDT
Not only is this a Awesome post, It also proves that Mexican Cartels have access to Weapons Manufactured in America , but Not Purchased in America from dealers and smuggled across the boarder. If they all had Russian made Ak-47 would Mexico try to blame Russia, well maybe Mexico would, but I bet you could illegally purchase one in almost every country in the World today. sorry off topic.

Anytime you are igniting more than 200 grains of powder, you should exercise extreme caution.
