    I don't know what this guy was thinking.

    Apparently he wanted to put a fairly large firework of some kind down the barrel of his shotgun, and launch it down range by firing a 12 Ga shell.

    In reality, all he did was create a barrel obstruction.

    I can't believe nobody got hurt.

    I think that may be some sort of modified 870 or one of the pump action rifles because he clearly has a magazine protruding from under the elevator, just foward of the trigger guard.

    Either way, they are morons. I can't believe they laughed when it broke.

    Natural selection is a slow and imperfect process. It does work, and I'm sure this fellow will get his very own Darwin award soon.

    SHEESH!!

    Either that or he's a bored soldier. After reading some of the accounts in a couple of threads around here, I wouldn't put it past em.

    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
    Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

    Ordinarily he was insane, but he had lucid moments when he was merely stupid.

    God placed obvious limits on our abilities, but none whatsoever on our stupidity.

    I'll bet money, he calls remington telling them "I don't know what happened I was just shooting some bird shot and the barrel came apart......And, Remington wanting to keep their customers happy will send him a new barrel and a box of shells with a letter saying how sorry they are that he experienced a problem with one of their guns".....

    Too bad there's no way to "flag" Remington that they should be on the lookout for this coming back....

    Some people shouldn't be allowed to breed!!

    The worst part is that the guy filming this whole thing is almost in front of the gun.

    I wonder if they could hear the wings of their guardian angel(s)? Or do they even realize how close they came to meeting their maker?

    It only takes a few guys like that to make the rest of us look bad...

    Well, thats one way to shorten a shotgun barrel. :what:

    I'm not entirely sure those guys fully understand the depth of their own stupidity and just how galactically foolish (and lucky) they truly are.

    At least (assuming no other damage) they only have to replace the barrel and they're good to go again (now that's a scary thought!!). :eek:

    The magazine? It is an after-market...Knoxx. There are other companies too that manufacture 10-round magazines (like pictured) for Mossbergs and Remingtons. They also have a drum magazine. Knoxx also manufactures Remington 870 Tactical stocks.

    Knoxx sidewinder was made for the 500, and went infront of the reciever, not out the bottom of it.

    Remington makes a .223 and .308 rifle that looks like the 870 and takes the 7400 & 7600 mags. I wonder if that is not the beast we are looking at?

    I believe that was John Kerry on a hunting trip. The language appears to be Heinz, of which there are 57 varieties, resulting in a great deal of confusion on the part of its speakers and those who listen to them. They tend to confuse doublespeak with reality and think that others believe what they say.
