The Photos are the same perhaps I got hood winked but I will say I never bought into the Chineese Ammo story, I've seen good Rugar 44 Mags look just like this because of the Wrong Powder and Overloaded Cases, the Result of the Dirty Harry Syndrome.

I have a belief that if I want to pull a trigger on a cannon it better have wheels. and if my 40S&W isn't big enough I will change over to my 10 mm, if that don't get the job done I'll reach for my long gun. But that's just me!

If it were Chinese ammo I would expect a squib round not a blowout. Looks like it hurt, thats for sure.

It wasn't a case of too much powder, it was a case of the wrong damned formulation. If it was otherwise, there would be no need for primers.

Those photos have been traveling around the internet for several years. And there are several different stories about the gun,the shooter,and what the supposed cause of said accident was.

Kinda like the bogus monster hog that was posted awhile back. It's fake and photoshopped.

My wife told me I'm not allowed to do this to any of my weapons, especially hers.

Yep, I've gotten that in my email several times.

So, you were there when he brought this in and said that huh? That's what my email said too, *copy and paste job*
