  • Jemand

    so wait, god is the reason he's standing there? Wasn't he also the reason, the gun exploded? Or was he the reason all those great doctors went to medical school and did their job to fix you? I'm confused. Oh wait, there's no god, it was just luck and great doctors. Now I get it.

That’s awesome you have that, I’ve got a 4 yo boy and man that has got to be the hardest thing for a dad to go through but sounds like yours performed as an excellent father. And I know you would do the same for yours. God bless and keep the videos coming!

    The construction of the .50 cal rifle is just criminal - sorry!! A screw on cap like a plumber cap even if heat treated and from quality steel is absolute nonsens if the threads are not 100% tight they are prone to get ripped of. Calculating the locking area in relation to the pressure - distribution on the flanks on such a thread is horrible. I wonder if the producer of this dangerous system gets sued over this absolutely desastrous design.

    Why so many dislikes? Stupid anti gunners prolly wish you didn't get off so easy or summin. Stupid people

  • maejimayuki

    I think it is not a good design to try to take the pressure of such a powerful explosive with just this screw.

    05:59 - That's a great advertisement for protective glasses. The glasses broke, your orbital bone broke, your face broke... But you kept your eye. Let this be a lesson to everybody to remember to wear the right protection when handling their firearms. Heck, it might have even been a good idea to reach out to the manufacturer and ask them if they would like to sponsor the vid. As a side point - there is no way I would have been able to remain conscious if I sustained an injury like this. This fella is cut from tougher stuff than the rest of us. Kudos.

    It's an Artery not a vein. Arteries squirt out oxygenated blood and veins ooze deoxygenated blood.

    You said in the end of the video "there is no way I would have known about the pressure of the round". Bro, even store purchased ammo for 30 cal and up, I take the pill out and measure the powder.

    Reminds me of that popular mock Russian guy who shot all the time without glasses. Just stupid. Playing with guns isn't funny, as is often portrayed on SVsoft. This culture is far too obsessed with firearms.

    Jugular vein does not supply oxygen to brain. It's the return line FROM your brain. Carotid artery supplies the brain. Arteries are the supply lines, veins are the return lines. Arteries are high-pressure, veins are low pressure... which is why jamming your thumb in the hole worked. If you'd taken out your carotid artery, yeah you'd be done.
