Since you believe guns are the "second most stupid invention on the planet", that must make you the first.

@zepex, No. If you think war can ever be removed from the human existence you are living in a fantasy world. There will always be a reason for war.

An armed society is a polite society.

Guns are a good thing. They help stave off the overpopulation of not just humans, but also animals.

Guns by themselves are not bad. They are however, used in bad ways, by a minority of people.

In my days Smith & Wesson used decent quality steel instead of blaming the ammunition for their shitty hardware.

looks like the explosion might have been caused by a faulty gun - the bullet has not been properly aligned if the gun hasn't been tampered with after the shooting.

I've had the same thing happen on a .22 rifle, luckily the bolt went to the side or I would have it in my eyesocket...

Though I certainly can afford one, I do not have one nor see a need to ever get one. Corporate greed is what sent the eletronics industry to the far east, NOT their skills or superior high tech. As a matter of fact, when corporate greed decided to sell out their own countrymen, they actually helped to give and set up the high tech that the far east now claims as their own. All you got is cheap slave labour and zero human rights coming out of that part of the world. Therefore I reitterate"everything Chinese is shit" and indian too!

Oh good, another "Chinese" something thread.

BTW, if you Google the images, you'll see most of talk is that it was probably some guy playing around with his reloader and over-charging the round and not Chinese ammo.

Corporate greed is only partly responsible for the lose of quality work to third world production in sweat shops. Consumer greed is more heavily at the root of the move of jobs to places like China when consumers are hell bent on getting everything for a cheaper and cheaper price. If you want quality then you had better be willing to pay for it otherwise you'll get walmart quality.

I saw this two years ago with a comment saying the cause was overloaded cartridges. Someone who didn't know how to reload ammunition properly.

Can anyone verify?

This is true. The culprit was a double charged round.

How would an overloaded shell set off the other rounds?
