He thinks that the gas will pass into the port as it expands out to the crown.

Soimeone settle this for us.....anyone firing blanks?
I guess since the question has been answered, you shouldn't tell your buddy, but rather shoot some blanks. When they fail to cycle, claim victory.

One guy was shot in the eye while wipeing the moisture off the inside of his mask. He went on restriction and rode out the better part of a year and a half in the S-Shop pushing paper.

It was fun as hell though and would like to do it again.
Yeah, there used to be a show in the mil channel that simulated Special Ops missions, and they used it. It does look like a lotta fun, for sure!

Yep, actually loaded in a 9mm casing. It's actually a plastic bullet, fired with real powder, or maybe just primer fired. swap the upper on an m16, different mags, your in business.

Wait, so he shot himself in the eye or someone else shot him while he was dicking around with his mask?
