    Jesus christ. Let this be a learning experience to all those aspiring Gun designers: Just as important as designing your gun to not fail under reasonable conditions is designing it to fail safely under unreasonable conditions. Some inexpensive design tweaks might have been possible to prevent those fins from sheering off and becoming shrapnel, instead directing the failure laterally and protecting the shooter. I think owners of .50 BMG rifles should take care to weigh a few rounds from each batch of old WWII era ammo for safety's sake. Also acquaint yourselves with the manufacturer's stated failure point of your rifle.

    weird thing at 4:30 frame by frame right when you pull the trigger theirs a flash of orange on the table and some shadows show up on the ground behind the table. idk what it means but i would like to know what Scott thinks of it. in the frame that you see his finger move back the flash on the table is instantly there and the shadows are there the gun hasn't gone off yet. hopefully Scott will say something as to it? even an idk so i know he knows about it.

    Imagine, this story might not be possible 20 years ago. Not just HRposts, but with Healthcare and Community members. It makes me think about how many people actually worked hard for your recovery, and countless other people who have been in other accidents. This is why I have faith in people, I believe in everyone. Anyone can make the choice to help one another, but to be able say you helped someone survive. That's priceless...


    If this happened to me in my country, I'd be dead

    I’ll admit, I always shoot with ears on but rarely with eye protection. Lesson freakin learned. Never again. As a former medic, you are 100% correct. You CANNOT tourniquet a neck. Direct pressure and in extremely dire situations(such as a lacerated jugular or punctured carotid), you improvise. Way to think on your toes, brother! I can’t wait for my “just put a thumb in it”shirt. I’m glad to see your sense of humor wasn’t injured. I look forward to your videos & wish you a speedy recovery! God Bless!
