22LR MeltDown

There really is a 22LR Machine Gun.

Wonder how long you have to shoot before it melts?
Youtube shooting sensation IV8888 has a strange little CMMG .22 caliber machine gun. Dressed up in safety gear he and his team are ready to see how long and how hot this .22LR machine gun can run.
Watch Iraqveteran8888 load up mags and try it out. See the video below.


Here’s what Iraqveteran8888 is shooting
22 CMMG upper
4 inch barrel
KG made Swarm – all Titanium can

Firing from stick magazines and drum magazines also this little .22 caliber machine gun shreds a 55 gallon metal drum. Check out the heat signature off this weapon and suppressor during the test.

Shot after shot tear into the target with malfunctions starting to mound up as the gritty .22 ammunition leaves more and more fouling.

After almost 2,200 rounds this little CMMG .22 machine gun is really dirty and sluggish but survived without damages.

Video Transcription
Welcome back everybody, this is Eric here with Iraq Veteran 8888, today we’re gonna be doing something kinda outlandish; we’re gonna be doing a meltdown video for you today. This little rig here is kinda silly, it looks like something that almost belongs in a Kurt Russel movie. I couldn’t get Snake Plissken to come out and shoot this for you today, so you’re just going to have to settle for lonely old me, I guess.

But we’ve got a CMMG 22 upper here with a 4 inch barrel, we’ve got a KG made Swarm, this is an all-titanium can. So we’re gonna be shooting full auto until this gun fails. We’ve gotten some speculation from folks about how long this thing’s gonna last, so leave your comments below, let the world know how long you think this little guy’s gonna last. We’ve got a whole bunch of Black Dog magazines here, loaded up with some Federal auto match, we’re gonna be shooting through it. Got it topped off with a little ACOG which of course, in typical meltdown fashion, we’re not gonna use. The one thing that I am gonna mention that we have changed is the standard CMMG firing pin. We’ve ran this gun at full auto a good bit, and it’ll break after around 1300 rounds. We had Ray machine us a special firing pin for this gun, so I just want that caveat out there, that we did change it up just a little bit to give us a little bit more longevity in this rig here.

As far as I know, this is gonna be a new record for the amount of full-auto 22 that’s been fired in one sitting. I can’t find any references to anybody running this much 22 ammo. If we end up running the amount of rounds that I think this gun’s gonna run, we’re setting a world record today. Also, there’s never been this much 22 ammo at one time put through a suppressor. So we’re kinda torture-testing the suppressor, we’re seeing how long the 22 can run, so no telling what’s gonna happen, we’re just gonna go for it. We have no idea how this is gonna go.

We’re just gonna do it.

Alright. Here we go. I’ve got some drums, got some 25-round shot mags, 50-round drums, and we’ve got a couple of 32s. Gonna go for it.

[Shooting]

I’m gonna have some guys back here loading some mags for me.

[Shooting]

[laughter]

[Shooting]

It’s like a woodpecker.

[Shooting]

Alright, we’re running 5 sticks and a drum, so here’s a drum.
[Shooting]

Alright, looks like it didn’t pick up like the last three or four rounds. Try that.

[Shooting]

There we go. Oh yeah, she’s skanky(?). Gonna keep going.

And hey guys, if any of these mags are short when I’m sending ’em to you, let me know.

[Shooting]

I’m not really looking at ’em, I’m just shooting.

[Shooting]

Ah she uh, flipped up a bit.

[Shooting]

It’s like a labratory of destruction.

[Shooting]

YEAH.

[Shooting]

It’s like a pack of angry hornets.

[Shooting]

Poisonous angry hornets, chad!

[Shooting]

Look at this thing just running!

[Shooting]

Dude! She won’t die!

[Shooting]

Thank you chad. Uh-oh! Alright. We’re getting some malfunctions here. Ok, I want to make note of something, guys. This is one of the black dog mags, marked Kel-Tec, I don’t know if this is an older magazine, perhaps, but I just wanna make a note of that. it is a different magazine.

“Put it to the side?”

Yep, put it to the side.

[Shooting]

And have that guys lee go juice on tap. (???)

[Shooting]

Dude that can is hot! We’ll take a temperature reading in just a moment. Uh-oh.

[Shooting]

That chamber’s getting a little crusty.

Uh, this is another one of the kel-tec marked magazines. For the purposes of this test, chad, pull all the kel-tec magazines. Alright. Oh wait, we’re not in drum territory yet. We’re about to be, though.

[Shooting]

I believe the newer mags have metal feed lips chad, is that correct?

“That is.”

Ok, good deal.

[Shooting]

Ooh yeah, boy she is getting hot. Ok, we’re going to take a very quick temperature reading guys. The suppressor is 222 degrees. The barrel… 301 degrees. The chamber… 149 degrees. The upper receiver, 161 degrees. The barrel nut… 275 degrees. We’re gonna continue the test. Nope, not runnin’ bad. I am gonna give her just a little bit of lube, she’s lookin’ a little silly here. Alright. We’re gonna continue the test.

[Shooting]

I guarentee old Snake Plissken in Escape from New York woulda liked to have this.

[Shooting]

You know when you’ve got a hoard of ninjas coming after you.

[Shooting]

Are we sure this is not rigged chad? This thing’s running awfully good.

[Shooting]

Ok now we’re on the 32-round magazines, these are also Black Dog magazines.

[Shooting]

“This is silly.”

It is, man, you might wanna load some drums.

Had a couple malfunctions so far, but guys, it’s a 22. I mean all in all it’s running pretty good!

Uh-oh. I spoke too soon.

[Shooting]

It is crazy it’s stringing those shots like three feet to the right now.

[Shooting]

Uh-oh, well that sounded weird. It’s doing that weird thing again!

And guys, we do have a chamber brush on standby just in case we wanna swab the chamber on this thing.

And all in all it’s not runnin’ terrible!

[Shooting]

Alright there’s your drum.

Yeah it’s starting to give some weird, weird issues here. For sure.

You have any idea how many rounds we’re in, chad?

“Nope.”

Alright, the chamber’s kinda got some fallout in it. I think what we’re probably gonna have to do if we wanna keep running this thing, yeah, it’s not feedin’. Yeah. Failure to feed. Tell you what, we’re just gonna try another mag. Make sure it’s not the mag. Alright, this is another black dog mag, this is a Kel-Tec magazine, let’s try it. Here we go.
[Shooting]

We’ve definitely seen a decrease in reliability this far in. Which, uh. I’m just gonna keep runnin’ it until we have some kinda weird failure.

[Shooting]

Yeah she’s definitely getting sluggish chad. But I mean to be fair.

[Shooting]

Yeah at this point we just have rounds that are failing to go in to battery. I think it’s safe to say that’s about performance expectation we can just about look at. Yeah. I dunno man. [Shooting] I would venture to say at this point that reliability has suffered to the point where– at this point it probably needs a cleaning, but we haven’t popped an extractor, we haven’t broke a firing pin, and we’ve had a few minor issues, but nothing that wouldn’t be indicative of a rimfire gun. This thing sure is skanky, we’re gonna go ahead and try this drum.

[Shooting]

Alright, I’ll tell you what we’re gonna do.

They’re gonna keep topping off magazines– Alright that bolt is actually sticking a little bit.

The bolt is… 70 degrees. The chamber is… 70 degrees. The barrel is… 225 degrees. The barrel nut is 230, the can is… 237 degrees. We’re gonna work as quickly as we can, we’re gonna scrub the chamber, we might have some fallout in the chamber, some carbon buildup, we’re gonna quickly scrub the barrel, and keep goin’.

OK, roughly two minutes have elapsed. We went ahead and pulled the gun apart and scrubbed the chamber. Really nothing abnormal other than being really really nasty. We’re gonna continue the test. The gun hasn’t really like, technically died yet, so we’re gonna keep going. Hopefully the chamber cleared it up.

[Shooting]

Oh I can definitely tell that thing’s running a lot smoother. I think that chamber just began to get a little nasty.

[Shooting]

Uh-oh.

[Shooting]

Ammo’s running pretty good.

[Shooting]

Who says shooting can’t be an olympic sport? Well it is technically I guess.

[Shooting]

Alright.

[Shooting]

My favorite part.

[Shooting]

Oh those drums, man.

[Shooting]

Alright I don’t know who’s setting these mags here but we’re doing them five at a time, so try not to get me confused.

“Yes boss!”

[Shooting]

Not really have much barrel left, do we?

[Shooting]

It’s like a pinball machine!

[Shooting]

I don’t think we’re gonna be able to generate enough heat to kill this thing, chad. I think we’re just waiting on something to break at this point.

[Shooting]

Yeah it’s doing that sluggish thing again, chad.

I think that that– maybe our recoil spring and everything is just getting weak. ‘Cuz it does– it feels very sluggish.

[Shooting]

I don’t know at what point we could definitively call it until something breaks.

[Shooting]

“You might’ve put a little too much go juice on there.”

Oh come on.

[Shooting]

Well at least this is one of our cheaper meltdowns.

[Shooting]

That sounded strange…

[Shooting]

“It’s certainly the quietest.”

Yeah I’ll tell you what, how ’bout some in the dirt?

[Shooting]

It’s like a woodpecker. Here’s a woodpecker that’s gotta run an endurance race. [Shooting, quick stop] Whelp, I ate my words there. [Laughter]

[Shooting]

Pretty quiet.

[Shooting]

There’s gonna be either a lot of really happy people, or really mad people, or a lot of pissed off Reuger 10-22 fans.

[Shooting]

Oh yeah, it’s doing the same thing. I think that chamber is just getting a lot of fallout in it.

[Shooting]

Yeah, it’s doing the same thing. Basically it’s doing what it took a lot of rounds to do before, but it just didn’t take as long this time.

[Shooting]

I mean you gotta think though, at this point, I mean, we have fought off multiple motorcycle gangs of bears.

[Shooting]

I mean if we’ve still got a motorcycle gang of bears on top of this we’re doing something wrong at this point.

[Shooting]

Didn’t run all of that drum. Hm. Well, keep going. Uh-oh.

[Shooting]

Definitely starting to get those rimfire finnicky issues that you get out of rimfires. It definitely took a while for it to happen, though!

[Shooting]

Yeah it’s doing the same thing. Failure to feed. Failure to feed.

[Shooting]

Failure to feed. Yeah it’s– that chamber is really skanky, chad. I think at this point what this video has really become is just a matter of really how long a 22– yeah she’s done– how long a 22 can go without being cleaned. I think that’s what this really comes down to. I’m gonna try one more drum just for the heck of it, see if it’ll run it.

[Shooting]

Huh.

[Shooting]

Hell give me another drum.

[Shooting]

Well that’s a partial drum. Well there’s all of that drum. I’m gonna try some 32s. I don’t think we can get this thing hot enough to kill it.

[Shooting]

Pretty much at this point of the video, I’m gonna call it.

Alright guys, that was a pretty interesting result that we got out of the little CMMG 22 there, um, you know, it’s crazy. It ran a ridiculous amount of rounds, we allowed the gun to cool down, we pulled it apart, we got the KGMade suppressor apart, I mean, there’s a little bit of lead buildup here and there and there’s definitely some leading on the baffles itself, but overall, I mean, the suppressor came apart relatively simple. We had to kinda beat it with a rod a little bit to get it apart, but that’s to be expected. So you’ve probably wondered how many rounds the gun ended up going. Well it’s kind of an estimate, because we just had to review the footage. It went 2,178 rounds, and that’s kind of an estimate. We factored in some of the stoppages as well, removing those from the count, so almost 2200 rounds, that’s almost seven bricks of federal auto-match. So I mean, just to put it in perspective, all these empty boxes.

Man we just put an amount of ammo through this gun that your average person probably wouldn’t do in an entire year. Now granted, some of us shoot a lot, but the gun’s pretty filthy. I mean you look at the lower, it is just caked in a nice layer of carbon, the upper is definitely skanky, it’s got a whole bunch of nasty stuff in the upper. The barrel– we can’t really see anything that’s terribly wrong with the barrel itself, I mean I think what it really comes down to is just a maintenance thing. The gun just needs a really good cleaning, and I think it’d probably run just fine. I really thing that if the gun hadn’t have gotten like, really gummed up with all the nasty from all the ammo, I think it would’ve just kept going and kept going. I don’t think that the 22 longrifle cartredge generates enough heat to really cause a heat issue.

In fact when KG Made- kind of heat treats these– not really heat treats, but when they like, they’ll do kind of a hear bluing in a way, and they’ll get a nice blue or kinda purple color out of these things, and when they do that they actually heat these suppressors up even hotter than what we were able to get this with full-auto 22 just back-to-back there. So, we’ve got a little bit of an exchange of heat that caused the temperature to change a little bit, and cause that little bit of discoloration, but not any more than what they would do at the factory, so that’s pretty interesting.

The suppressor held up, the gun held up, the optic held up, the gun held up. So oddly enough, I think what this video really proves is that it’s really just a maintenance thing. Once your 22s get so gummed up full of carbon and lead buildup, your suppressors are gonna get a little bit heavier because they’re gonna get leading. In fact the only definitive strip of lead I was able to pull out of the suppressor is just this little sliver of lead buildup right here. So not a terribly large amount of lead buildup, so that’s really cool, to know that your can can pretty much go the distance. So it proved that suppressors are definitely overbuilt, and good quality, and can last a long time, and it proved that a 22 conversion can really take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’.

I mean this is way more ammo than any average person would ever put through a gun in one sitting, and I would venture to say that this is actually a world record. I don’t think this much 22 ammo has been put through any gun in as quick of amount of time as we just did, ever. So there’s our record to beat, 2178 rounds, and that’s the most ammo that’s been put through a 22 suppressor in the shortest amount of time as well. So I think that’s the most rounds put through a suppressor and the most rounds put through a 22 of any type.

We’re gonna call it that, because I can’t find anybody that’s ever done this amount of rounds like this. So, hopefully you guys learned something in this video, but I tell you what. Just to make sure that I’m right, ok, we’re gonna clean this gun, really god, right now, I’ve got five drums loaded up right here, so the way we’re gonna test it: We’re gonna clean the gun, put the suppressor back together, and if it runs all five drums without a malfunction, then we can pretty much surmise that the gun itself is good to go and that it just got too dirty. And that we couldn’t get it hot enough to kill it, and we couldn’t put enough rounds through it to kill it without it getting too dirty to stop running. So maybe the fact that it got too dirty was kinda the failsafe that caused the gun to not kill itself.

One other thing that we are gonna check that we did not check yet, we’re gonna check the recoil spring to see if it’s gotten short or long, or if it’s caused any weird changes in geometry due to being wore out. Because right now this upper’s got about 7,000 rounds on it, total. Chad’s been running the mess outta this thing, so we’re gonna see if the springs wore out. We are gonna replace the recoil spring with a fresh recoil spring, we’re gonna continue on the existing fire pin, and we’re gonna run it. Let’s do it.

Alright, so as a test, what we’re gonna do here, is run five drums, and if it runs all five drums without stopping, then we can pretty much surmise it was a maintenance issue, and as long as the gun’s kept clean, it’ll in theory go about as long as you want it to. So. We’re just gonna go for it here.

[Shooting]

Alright we’ve got a stoppage. Stovepipe. We’re gonna keep going.

[Shooting]

Might’ve choked up the firing pin.

[Shooting]

Stovepipe. Well we’ve already debunked the test, but we’ll see if it’ll run the rest of these.

[Shooting]

Well that ran! Might’ve just been a fluke. Maybe we just had an issue with our drum.

[Shooting]

[laughing] Ran that!

[Shooting]

Kept on drummin’ along there. All in all not bad. Definitely increased reliability after cleaning it. 22s tend to be a bit finnicky with this kind of stuff, and what’s interesting is we put a lot of heat through this gun just through those five drums there. -Grab that temperature gauge for me, if you don’t mind- We’ll see how hot we got that suppressor just in that amount of time.

The suppressor’s 304 degrees. So even throughout running those 25-shot mags, intermittantly throughout the video, those five drums got it hotter than we did through the entire video. So that’s a pretty interesting result. 309 degrees. 334 degrees toward the end of the barrel. So. Pretty crazy.

Well guys, we really appreciate you watching today’s video, we’ve had a ton of fun making it. Thank you very much for the support, we’ve always got tons of things going on, more meltdowns on the way, we’ll come up with some other crazy things. We do have some other meltdowns planned. If you haven’t subscribed yet, consider subscribing. Stay tuned, more on the way.

Have you ever cooked a Grenade in a Microwave?

Who would ever even think to cook a grenade?

Remember that scene in Steven Seagal Under Siege movie, where he rigs a booby trap with a grenade to a microwave. Ok, maybe it wasn’t a grenade, just testing your memory. Anyways the idea of cooking a live grenade is the same as blowing up a car with Tannerite.

Matt Carriker of Demolition Ranch took this thought and put it into action. Like most of us he needed to see what a live grenade would do when cooked in a microwave. Matt went out and did a full-blown test on a series of different types of grenades.

Check it out below:

The first couple tests wasn’t much in terms of results. Matt started with a thermite incendiary grenade, which produced some burn marks after sitting in the microwave for about 15 minutes, but no explosion. The thermite needs to be hotter in order to explode.

Next up was the tear gas grenade, which also did nothing after 10 minutes in the microwave.

Finally, some action when Matt tries out the multi-bang flash-bang grenade, which launched pieces of the kitchen appliance. The flash powder is very sensitive to heat.

Here’s a series of explosive that Matt tries out:
-Sting-ball grenade – used for less than lethal in a jail settings, this produced nothing.
-Sheet of C4 explosive – melted.
-Dynamite with partially melted C4 only burned up – gave it a secondary charge, sending microwave fragments into orbit.

The true focal point of the experiment was the frag grenade, this produced a dud –simply wouldn’t explode after 15 minutes in the microwave.
Matt even tried it with TNT booster charge with the frag grenade, with no explosion. So next time you see a movie with someone cooking a frag grenade, chances are it won’t go off in real life.

Madsen M47 – Truck Gun why not?

Some people that live out in rural areas carry rifles in their trucks. A common question that comes up for these folks are, what is the best type of rifles to have and its purpose. The following is a story by Alex C of Firearm Blog on his findings.

When I was a boy, every truck you saw in Texas (even in urban areas) seemed to have a gun rack in the back window with two or three different long guns proudly displayed on it. A rifle or two and a shotgun were not at all uncommon to see inside vehicle windows, but that definitely is now quite rare. While not illegal, people are more conscious of concealing their firearms in vehicles due to theft and urbanization (people aren’t as used to seeing firearms in plain sight these days).

That said, just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there. Many people I know have a designated “truck gun” that they don’t mind being knocked around or subjected to lots of abuse, but picking one can be a little tricky. Several factors come into play when selecting one:

MadsenM47-ButtstockAre you in a rural or urban area?
If you live in an urban area, statistically you are not likely to encounter threatening wildlife. Obviously personal protection is the name of the game here, so many people opt for a pistol instead of a long gun. Concealed carry pistols are often small, but in your car’s glove box you can keep a duty pistol if you choose to.

MadsenM47-SightsDefense or pest control possibility?
As mentioned above, if you live in a rural area then you may need something to nail a coyote anxious to snatch a chicken from a coop or grab a lamb. I have a relative who just last year lost a chicken every few days until he was coming home late one night and was able to take care of a suspicious coyote poking around the coop with his trusty Browning BLR.

Cost?
Find a gun that is likely to meet your needs that is priced right. Remember that a gun banging around in your vehicle is going to get scuffed up.

Likelihood of being stolen?
Secure/hide your firearm to the greatest extent possible. Phil White once told me that almost all the quality guns recovered from criminals are stolen. I also know several people who have had their vehicles burglarized and their firearms taken.

What are you familiar with?
If you have an 870 you use for shooting sports and hunting, it might be a good idea to look for a cheap base model to use as a truck gun. Likewise, if you hunt with a bolt action rifle and are concerned with seeing a 350 pound hog on your land, keep that in mind (and the prospect of bacon).

So with all these factored in, what do I keep in my vehicle?
Before I get to that let me say that I am more concerned with seeing a bobcat or coyote on my land seeking to startle one of the calves (pretty hard for a coyote to get a calf, but a desperate hungry coyote may try) than I am civil unrest or “SHTF”. Because of this I tote around a long gun rather than a pistol. Factors I looked for:

  • Handiness
  • Weight
  • Sights
  • Durability
  • Cost
  • Common ammo

After all of this I found a pretty unique, reliable gun to use: A Madsen M47. Ok, I know many consider this rifle to be behind the times when it came out. A matter of fact an instant “obsolete”.

MadsenM47

The Madsen M47 was the last bolt action designed with general issue military service in mind and was touted as the “lightweight military rifle”. It features a recoil pad, muzzle brake, and excellent sights:

It is short, compact, and fits well in most vehicles (including my jeep or my sedan) and is incredibly accurate.
It fires commonly available 30-06 and I got it for $500 as well, so I the price was right too.

So I was able to find a nice surplus rifle in a great caliber that meets my needs, but I have thought about getting something semi-automatic. I might capitulate one day, but until then I have a gun that meets my needs adequately that I don’t worry too much about. So tell us about your truck gun, what do you carry?

Story by Alex C

Here’s TFB taking the Madsen M47 on a run and gun course.

Hi-Point pistol goes Skydiving

Gun Stress Test at a Higher Level

Hi-Point pistol has been known to take a beating anywhere from running it into the mud to having it run over by a truck and still keeps on running.
Will a Hi-Point pistol work if dropped from a helicopter? Well, this is what Edwin Sarkissian did. Check out this skydiving Hi-Point pistol that was “dropped once”.

Love them or hate them Hi-Point pistols are here to stay. Some people swear by them as an economical protection handgun while others swear at them. Are they that tough?
In this video we see a Hi-Point pistol get chucked out of a helicopter. It hits the ground and is found after some searching. Testing the pistol afterwards Edwin Sarkissian finds the trigger will not work and the pistol is done.

Is this a thing to consider when making a purchase? To some this may be a driving point if they’re looking for durability and reliability.
However, there has to be a line of which stress test is worth knowing about that is likely to happen in the real-world.
Chucking a pistol out of a helicopter at 1000 ft. and retrieving it to use may not be a realistic scenario. This is probably for the final fantasy groups.

If nothing else this video was quite fun to watch. When was the last time you’ve seen a flying Hi-Point pistol? This epic drop test is right up there with the Last American Hero show. (sorry, that was a nostalgia thought)

Rubber Bands on AK-47

Ever used Rubber Bands to Replace an AK-47 Part?

Cooking bacon on the barrel of an AK-47 is one thing, but replacing a vital part of the operating machine with rubber bands takes some serious outside of the box thinking!
Usually Youtuber TAOFLEDERMAUS is blowing things up with crude ammo innovations or hacking one. This time they did something that was really worthwhile. They replaced the return spring on an AK-47 with a bunch of rubber bands. The thing is no one has ever tried this.

What are the risks? Well, the bolt could slam into your face or worse the rubber band snapping at the shooter.

The idea was from Matt of Youtube MattV2099, where he rubber band a Glock so it wouldn’t fire. Well, TAOFLEDERMAUS (Darren) decided to make a weapon function with rubber bands.
The AK was chosen because they are notorious for being an unstoppable gun, you can fill them (mud, twinkies, etc..) with almost anything and it still fires.
It’s crazy to think that using rubber bands for the spring return actually works, and according to Darren, he stated that the cycle rate was even faster while shooting! About a millisecond faster. Take a look at comparison below.

Wonder how the rubber band would fare if it was on full auto. Maybe thats for another video.

Punt Guns – Commercial Harvesting

Everyone likes to shoot big guns that goes boom. We’re talking a gun that you can shoulder and fire not a howitzer.
Back in the days of “commercial harvesting” you can hear large guns roaring in the marshes as waterfowl drop like rain. The use of punt guns was very effective.
Back in the 1800 the use of punt guns to shoot down birds for market meat at cash value, which eventually was banned as waterfowl populations were in heavy decline.

Punt guns were not the average sporting shotgun. First use were over sized black powder shotguns in which well over a pound of shot could be fired at once. These could be made into gigantic flock slayers of different gauges. Yes, days of lead belching mammoth are gone.
Here is a video shared by Ryan Stille highlighting a punt gun unleashing on some clay pigeons.
These single shot long gun form in huge sizes such as 4 gauge and even at a big 2 gauge size.

These punt guns were normally mounted on small boats. Hunters would paddled towards unsuspecting flock of waterfowl in the water. The boat was aimed by paddle so the punt gun was lined up and in range. With one huge kaboom, dozens or more ducks were put down.

Seems unsporting but for meat market it was the way to go. Using punt guns in groups can bring down many birds. By 1860, the practice of using punt guns was banned mostly at the state levels. Federal laws in 1918 finished market hunting for good.

Currently, waterfowl shotguns are required by federal law to be at most 10 gauge, while many hunters use 12 gauge magnum loads that exceed the standards of the old shells.
Game conservation, including the ban of duck cannons like the punt gun, has brought waterfowl numbers up to an all time high.

50-110 Smokeless Powder Lever Action Rifle

Are you into old buffalo cartridge and want to make it better?
Do this, load it up with smokeless powder in a lever action rifle. You will surely have some fire power with a .50-110 caliber rifle. Which means lots of fun shooting and yes you can take down some game as well.
Thats what Youtuber Leverguns50 did in the video that they shared online. Don’t be mislead by the old school image because the rifle power is modern.



We can’t say this enough, loading this cartridge with smokeless powder makes this lever action rifle a hard hitter that can punch holes in steel and obliterate other targets.
The 450 grain .50-110 caliber can create more energy than the 458 Winchester Magnum.
This cartridge is good to have on hunting trips and expect encounters with larger tough dangerous animals like brown/grizzly bear. This cartridge was even mentioned in Craig Boddington’s book The Perfect Shot North America.
“…He went on a voyage to Antarctica, and at one point they put in at one of the earliest explorers’ camps, finding many of the supplies still intact. Among the gear was a huge quantity of century-old ammunition, including a large quantity of .50-110 ammo, a big more, black-powder cartridge chambered to the 1886 Winchester. Why? Because early visitors to Antarctica fully expected to run into polar bear or similar big beasties.”

The modern rifle is stronger than the vintage black powder era rifles. Handling the power from the smokeless powder is no problem. You definitely better brace your shoulder, looks like it has some kick. Have fun and be safe!

Epic Girl Gun Fails

Many gun magazines have their flavor of gun bunnies showcasing them in the calendars, AR girls, etc.. Here are our short list of close-call gun accidents in the hot girl gun category. Sure, real gun folks often have better videos, but the hot girls sometimes wear bikinis. These girls simply can’t handle a weapon, making them probably not the safest hands for a firearm to be in. That’s the spirit of what this list is about.

There are many gun bunny FAILs out there in the wild internet. The girls on this list probably wish they didn’t have someone posting these mishaps on social media, or probably hoped that they’d be better able to handle a gun. Oh well.
Watch these gun bunnies give it a go but ultimately fail.

  • Limp Wrist
    These people apparently live in a neighborhood where porches are treated like the command bow of a pirate ship, because not only can you openly shoot guns on your porch, but you must wear standard protective neon green so that the neighbors don’t mistake you for being a deer.


    So, this girl takes her first shot of a gun and she gets that “holy s**t” moment that makes watching this video worth it. When someone completely fails at holding on to a gun, it’s extra scary because of three things:
    1. The initial gunshot itself startled them
    2. This caused them to lose control of the gun, which THEN startles them again.
    3. When the gun is either regained or dropped, there’s a moment apparent in everyone’s face that says “holy crap… someone could’ve been shot.”
    That is why whenever this happens, these videos allow you to view an incredibly dangerous situation from the comfort and safety of your home.
  • Blondie with a Big Gun
    This blonde takes a knee at the beginning of this video. After she does this, she takes aim, stands her ground, has perfect form in the way she positions her wrists. She pulls the trigger.
    The recoil of the blast knocks her on her back, sending the gun flying everywhere around, potentially shooting everyone else that was around (including the cameraman).
  • Gun bunny Casing Catcher
    This gun bunny shoots a 44 MAG & a 357 MAG, with hilarious consequences, which I’m sure you can infer from the title. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised…
  • Watch Where you Point
    Watch this girl hold a Yosemite Sam-sized gun while her boyfriend/friend/guy supports her by the shoulders, what could go wrong, right?

    This girl has great posture, has a whole other person behind her, and seems to have strong enough forearms… but this gun treats her like a “Looney Tunes” character so much so that because she wasn’t supporting the back of the gun as it flipped around and nearly pointed right at her chest. Talk about a close call.
  • Go for the Moon
    This clip, entitled, “Why Women Shouldn’t Shoot Guns” is absolutely hilarious. You don’t get comedy like this too often.

    The girl shoots the gun once and then feels okay, she shoots it a second time and loses her balance. Then on the third shot, she’s basically falling back, but for some reason (and this is the funniest part) decides to shoot it again, thus propelling her onto the ground behind her, right on her back as she points the gun straight up, just in case a duck flies by.

Runaway Tommy Gun

Have a look at this footage of a runaway Thompson machine gun. YouTuber PowerModz shows just how scary a runaway machine gun can actually be. This Thompson submachine gun takes off expectantly for this shooter. A runaway machine gun can ruin your day or others quickly.

While firing short bursts the machine gun just kept on going without putting a finger on the trigger. Though text book states – Uncontrolled fire (the weapon continues to fire after the trigger is released) is usually caused by the firer not pulling and holding the trigger all the way to the rear. This results in the sear not clearing the sear notch, which causes wear to both parts.

Not sure if this was the problem with this Thompson machine gun but internal issues is likely. This range officer took the correct steps in holding onto the Thompson gun and pointing it at the target to let it fire the remaining rounds. You can see the target dance under the barrage of .45 caliber slugs.


Think the moral of the story is safety and keeping your guns clean always. Worn out, broken parts and dirty guns can cause Murphy to play a hand. Stay safe.
