    No finger pointing (taurus) or anything along that line, this can result from improper hand loads.

    enjoy :D

    I like how he points it at his face after it happens, I'm sure there are still rounds in the other cylinders, especially the one that is right in front of the hammer......

    Noticed that the friend videotaping the incident is the one that takes his hand and re-points the gun down range

    Had this been a self-defense scenario, i think the flying barrel, the flash & noise, and the newly arrived fecal matter would've scared the attacker away or knocked the attacker out or had the attacker ROFLing too hard to attack.

    He's lucky he has his fingers/thumb on his left hand still in tact.

    Not arguing the point of safety first, Im not so sure Id have my wits about me 100% after somthing like that either. Thats what makes his friend a good friend!

    Definitely a good friend, especially noting that the guy still had his finger on the trigger and not indexed (along what was left of the weapon). I'd say he's extremely lucky to have all his fingers (and other parts of the extremities) intact after that bit of "damage."

    He was damn lucky, especially where the placement of his hand was from the video - could have been very bad situation for him.

    Dangerous and lucky indeed!

    I do like the comments people made about the video on Youtube. It is nothing but one big Taurus hate fest. After all, something like that could never happen to another weapon. :rolleyes:
