has anybody heard of this happening? or have an explanation for it happening?
hard telling being a rental but you might be right.. sounds plausible to me..texastaurusguy said:You know what that kinda looks like? maybe the cylinder didn't line up exactly with the barrel, or the cylinder travelled too far somehow, and BOOM - the bullet blew the barrel right off the gun. Either that, or somebody made an unsafe modification to the gun. That's pretty wild........
sitting thru the slow motion at the last of it, and noticeing it in earlier run thrus, I would say it was way out of synch. Did you notice the large flame pattern, on the upper left, looks like the barrel and cylinder were definitely not lined up. But I think like you all he was lucky has heck, that the barrel left the frame.joe sixpack said:hard telling being a rental but you might be right.. sounds plausible to me..
omg i never seen nothing quite like that.. usually when they say the barrel is shot out they dont mean it literally.
looked like a 627 tracker.. i sure hope nothing like that happens to mine.. if i survive it i'll be beyond pissed!
I actually have set up two camera's from different angles at the same time, to figure out what the heck I was doing wrong. Of course, I was out doors on my own small shooting area, but video is just a great way to see what the heck is going on, that even an instructor might miss, but reviewing more than once you spot things, especially when you can go thru it frame by frame.Mikeo said:I find it odd that they were videotaping at just the right time for the barrel to come flying off. Whenever I see something, like this, I can't help but think that it is, somehow, staged.
