    I've been saying it for years - never wear yellow "ears" while shooting. Your barrel will fall off. This is proof.

    The hardware is the same, but the software is vastly different.

    Unless that was the last round loaded, I'm not sure I would have been turning that thing toward me to take a look into the revolvers chambers where that barrel used to be! He's lucky to still be in one piece.

    It may be a result of the slow motion vs real time, but it sure looked like there was a whole lot of flame out of the wrong places (e.g., hammer side of cylinder) on the round that blew the barrel off. Thoughts: Faulty brass, way overloaded, cylinder not in alignment.

    I, too, noticed the flame out of the rear of the cylinder. It just doesn't look right.

    I've seen a barrel blow of a revolver and the top strap/cylinder come apart. Both times they were caused by overpressure due to custom reloads - to much powder, brass used to many times, wrong powder, wrong primer, to heavy a bullet. The guy's lucky that he's just out a gun that might be repairable.
