Ever swallowed a live round?

My wife is out of town...that's how trouble usually starts. :rolleyes:

Anyway, as I'm sitting here with my Beretta 92 I remember how in movies or whatever when someone clears a handgun they remove the magazine and then work the slide ejecting the loaded round and catch it in the air. That's easy. SO then I start thinking how about if I catch it in my mouth??? THAT would be cool. But what if I accidentally swallow the live round...:eek: What might happen? Beside the obvious "ejection"?

If I remember my cartoons right, you just have to be careful not to sit down too hard. Or else you'll have a bullet shoot out of your mouth.

Hmmm. Well I've torture tested centerfire ammo before, but not like that! Still, factory ammo or handloads with a good primer seal should be completely immune to any damage from the human digestive system. If you timed it right you could sneak ammo onto a plane that way, though I doubt you'll see any movies featuring such a technique :D

From a Safety Standpoint - I don't catch live rds when clearing a handgun. I don't pick up rds on a range that have been dropped either.

When teaching new folks , I instill these safety ideas. I have under CONTROLLED situations used snap caps, blank rds to show NDs as a result of Aping Hollywood .

I will catch the fired hulls as they eject from a O/U shotgun though.

I'd be more worried about chipping a tooth than swallowing it...:uhoh: Get a dummy round and try to eject it over your head and catch it behind your back.;)

My little sister swallowed 5 .22 LR rounds when she was 3 or 4. The worst part was the digging through each diaper change and counting the rounds. All passed with no problem or discernable damage other than the obvious discoloration!

tailgunner, please forgive me but I find your user name combined with your post about your sister swallowing 5 rounds to be rather amusing.:D

I'd be more worried about chipping a tooth than swallowing it...I'd be more worried about accidentally letting someone know you were contemplating this.

Whatever you do, don't tell anyone you're catching live ammo in your mouth, they might mistake you for a darwin candidate.

Somehow I doubt having sizeable amounts of brass and especially lead moving through your digestive system is terribly healthy.

I still have 47 minutes on my AT&T phone card. Just give me your wife's number and I will call her. Hopefully she'll get home before you harm yourself.
Even if you don't manage to swallow a live round, you will come up with something else to hurt yourself with.

I know, because I am the same way too.
I can not sit in front of a table with any kind of objects on it, and I especially can't be near any panels with levers, switches, or buttons on it.

If I can't get ahold of your wife, I'll send you a couple nylon zip ties instead. Just zip tie your thumbs together and stay like that until your wife gets home.
You'll be safe.


Tailgunner - did the rounds still fire afterwards?

Tailgunner - did the rounds still fire afterwards? So, Tailgunner, if you still have them, it seems that there are people willing to test them. Not my cup of tea, considering where they've been.

Just don't strain too much in the ejection process, or you might suffer an accidental discharge! :D

(And think of how you'd have to explain the damage to the toilet to your plumber...)

Yeah...a kaboom could be devestating too. Make sure your chamber is fully supported.

All right all right, I'll admit it. 3 bangs 2 duds. Hey, it was 40 years ago and I was 10. Ammo was 50 cents a box, I couldn't see wasting the equivalent of 2 pop bottles worth of ammo!

I'll second the chipped-tooth warning.

While we're talking silly flashy moves... there's a Japanese zombie-yakuza-samurai (yeah, it gets strange) movie called "Versus" with lots of gratuitous gunplay. At one point the hero has a gun in each hand (probably some type of 1911, since he likes those), and he kicks a gun into the air out of a zombie's hand. He puts one of his handguns into his mouth, pirate-style, grabs the gun out of the air, fires it off, then drops it and goes to use the gun in his mouth.

In the final version he just fires, but if you watch the behind-the-scenes stuff on the DVD (which isn't translated, unfortunately), what they originally tried was having him rack the slide by holding the slide in his teeth and moving the rest of the gun with his hand... and you can see the outtake where he's obviously chipping a tooth, and then having it superglued back on so they can continue filming (no need for subtitles there!).

Racking a slide by holding it with teeth?!?! :what:

That hurts just thinking about it.

Kinda like pulling a grenade pin with your teeth. :uhoh:

I like to use that as an example of why you need different types of props- your blank fire, your rubber stunt version, maybe a cheap airsoft version so you have the moving parts on one that's softer, lighter, and cheaper, maybe a gas-blowback if you're working at point blank, places you can't make as much noise, etc...

I don't eat my ammo. I prefer a Bratwurst or three.

If you really want to eat live rounds, I'd recommend short ammo (max lenght 1") with FMJ bullets.

Lead poisoning is quite undesirable!

Your brown eye maybe!

Just make sure it's not corrosive ammo. It might give you heartburn.

Speaking of cocking a gun in your mouth.

Check this out. I know it's a cartoon, but I thought it was neat.

Yes, that's supposed to be a semi-auto .454 ;)

And that ends up being his 'backup' gun as he gets a bigger one.
If your curious, the series is hellsing.

Sorry to be kind of offtopic, but Hellsing is a GREAT anime. I did have one heck of a time convincing my college friend that he did not have enough money to have a semi auto 454 made, althought that would be quite a fun little toy, especially a pair like he has in the anime.

Never swallowed a dead round either.

After you successfully complete this test, you will of course do the other one where you insert a live round in one ear and pull it out the other ear as was also demonstrated by Bugs Bunny, eh? :)
