I feel lucky and quite foolish.
I recently purchased a Masterpiece 9mm with a hellfire trigger. Shot 150 round last week and never got it to engage. I did some reading and went back out yesterday. I change my left hand position from gripping under the barrell to placing the left hand on top of the barrell. Well. It worked. Unfortunately, when it went full auto, Mr. Dumb Butt here wasn't ready. My left hand was thrown in front of the barrel. It blew a hole and broke my left thumb. I'm seeing a surgeon on Monday. It could have been a lot worse. Lesson learned.
Wow, sorry to hear that.

Glad you survived. Hope you learned a lesson.

Sorry to hear this, but this is a lesson that you should have studied and digested prior to shooting...OMO
Heal quickly, and thanks for sharing.

I never thought too much about gimmicky stuff to make a gun shoot rapidly,Even if it works,It's usually not aimed and you have to shoot from the hip,just one way to shoot a buncha ammo thats been increasing in price.I guess you can now sue the manufacturer

Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!
I'll learn this lesson from you and hope to never learn any lesson that way. Hope it turns out OK. Pics might be too graphic but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't curious.
You have another one just like it over on the other hand.
Hey...seriously it could have been worse.
They should be able to patch you right up and do a Sterling job of it.
I hope all turns out well and you can still count to ten.
Hummm.... bummer! A handgun goin' full auto is a handFULL! Hope you heal up quickly. Thanks for sharin'.

That could've turned out a lot worse.

Ouch! Glad you are ok, could have been worse.

Glad you are ok though.
