You won't take it apart but you would take the chance of hanging a rifle filled with 70 year old unstable explosives on your wall.
This is a huge myth. Maybe the friend of a friend of your cousin had a bout of finger in triggerites and he has the gun blow which has been known to happen. Then he was so embarrassed that he was an idiot he made up the story.
Just where are the explosives located?
What kind did they use?
Seeing as I do have some experience with explosives. I would expect that they would hallow out some of he stock and place the explosives in that. When would they have done that?
Seeing as the amount of explosives in the chamber more than likely wouldn't cause the gun to blow up.
Please provide real world examples of this happening.
