    Edit: oh yeah, it's not an auto, but that's not it. Just seemed like the right place to put this pic since I took it.

    Somebody here is learning how to use a digi camera:evil:

    It's obvious...

    You're using steel tools on brass screws.

    Looks to me like the cylinder kinda... exploded. 'Course the lighting sucks so I can't say.

    Again, as in Cortland's thread, I don't see anything wrong.

    But, I've gotta ask - are those the keys to the ambulance?

    The correct answer was teh cylinder. Just some minor burns on the hands and wrist. Wasn't even that big of a load in that little thing. It's been that way for a good while now but I've got a camera now.:)

    And no those aren't keys to the ambulance:neener:

    .45 Colt? Light load? Big cases do that with light loads
    sometimes. Powder lays below flash hole...Primer flame
    ignites powder over the length instead of back to front.
    (All at once instead of progressively.)
    A lot like detonation in an engine. Bad juju...Very lucky
    man. Next time use Cream of Wheat to keep the powder
    in place. A small cotton ball works too.

    Cheers!

    I don't put much stock in the detonation theory, but I do believe that double charges of fast buring powders will blow up a gun.

    Detonation

    I never did either, til I saw a M-94 Winchester grenade with
    a light charge of Unique behind a cast 173-grain bullet.
    Made a believer outta me...

    The Gun Store in Welcome NC can verify...ask for Freddy.

    As I've said in other threads on this and other boards. Glocks aren't the only gun to KB, just the one making press at this time.

    Thats not the first revolver D/a or S/a I've seen missing its top strap and half a cylinder.
