Got it in an email from a buddy today.


A guy came into the police department the other day to ask a
favor.
He had a S&W 629 (.44 Mag) that he wanted to dispose of after a
mishap at the
range.
He said there was a loud bang when he tested his new ammo,
(Chinese made),
and the gun smacked him in the forehead, leaving a nice gash.

When the tweety birds cleared from around his head, the pictures
show what he
saw.

Bet he never uses Chinese made ammo again!

Looks like when the round in the chamber went off, it also set
off at least
two other rounds in adjacent cylinders.

I would have hated to been the one that pulled the trigger on
that one!

No offense, but it just doesn't look right to me, and we know how those e-mails can be.

I have to agree.....If the round he was firing blew how did the other rounds blow. If nothing hit the primers which in the picture it definately does not look like it was possible. Now, would scrapnel(sp) cutting through the casing make the powder ignite? It would have to be hot enough after blowing the cylinder apart. Maybe it's possible.........
