JE Custom,
You'll note I do not condone his actions, I just said he has the right to do what he wants with his rifles. Also take note that I do not claim him as a friend. I did find some of the video amusing and some of it disturbing, but that pretty much sums up what I think of the man in the video as well.

I found it amusing. Who is to say he didn't check his barrel before shooting? If someone wants to have more money than sense (or maybe just less sense than money?) I don't see what's wrong with taping some comedic routine for other's amusement.

I to have a very good friend who has all ways treated his rifles abusively
and I tried to scold him ever chance I had but he did'nt care, well it finally
happened ,On a hunting trip he was carrying his weatherby around with the
barrel muzzel down on the floor matt when he got to his stand he spotted
a nice buck and tried a shot. When he awoke the rifle had blown up between
the recever and left hand and sp;it in five pieces also blowing the scope off.

After looking at the remains of a once fine rifle there was mudd around the crown,
apparently he had packed mudd or a small rock in the barrel causing it to blow up.

This was my concern and as a friend you should express your concerns.

If I offended any one I'm sorry but safe practices should allways be a priority
when handling any type of firearm.

In the future I will keep my comments to my self on this type of behavior,and
by the way my friend takes much better care of his rifles now.

He had tape around the barrel! He thought it out! ha ha. I thought is was funny.
