    I've seen that before, nothing made by man is perfect, everything breaks now and again.

    Hmm, hot load or a squib?

    My first thought was squib as well.

    The barrel had to have an obstruction, all the flash came from the cylinder gap. Had the barrel been clear when he fired most of the flash would have came from the muzzle.

    From watching the flight of the barrel I would have to say he had good sight alignment.

    He's lucky he still has a weak hand.

    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    I'm with rugergirl,they mighta fired 20 rounds,but some people don't stop shooting and check for obstructions if they have a round that feels different than the others,I'm thinking he had a squib and if they looked at the barrel there is at least one probably 2 bullets lodged in the barrel

    Exactly what I thought too. I would be interested in knowing what they found afterwards.

    That's it, always look on the bright side.

    The second shot shown had quite a bit more flash than the first one shown - wonder if there's not three bullets in the barrel.

    And that, folks, is why some ranges require that you shoot their ammo.
