    The shooter was really lucky. If you handload, this is why you should be very careful.

    A true Uh-Oh moment if there's ever been one. Good to hear that the individual was not seriously injured...
    Foolishness is a moral category, not an intellectual one.

    I am in the military and in addition to being a fire team leader, I also work as an armorer when the situation demands it. I have seen a lot of parts failures occur in our M4's but nothing has come close to what happened there.

    At least the ACOG looks like it's still OK.
