maybe you haven't been around as many guns as you say, if you have never seen one blown up. i have seen a few in my lifetime as well.
3 for me, but two were Uncle Sammy's property: an older M-60 barrel that was in the middle of shooting somewhere north of 18,000 rds., and was beyond Red hot, someone who tried to Frag a certain NCO with an 81MM mortar round,....and some Idiot Hunter in the Adks when I was a Teen, and helping my Uncle and Cousins with a Semi-Guided hunt on our land near Shroon Lake( I'm sure WF38 & KFox both know where that is,..maybe Vincine as well....)..
