several brands of stupid

I was recovering 2 iPhone 4's for my one buddy today and pulled this pic off of one of the two phones, he did not remember where he found it or when, and I know many people are stupid but this is beyond surreal

Google image search brings up plenty of links with that pic and info about squibs. For example:

What makes it especially amazing to me is that they reloaded to do that. I have done stupid stuff, but do not usually continue to do so after a little break.

With that much lead in the barrel, you'd think they'd notice it getting kind of front heavy.

Wanna bet his first indication of a problem was the first bullet or two dropping at his feet?

Only once 5.56 IMI ammo in an FNC. Was working the target #14 in a 30 rd mag and said that didn't sound right. Stuck 3/4 way down the barrel. Got it out and about 100rds later another. Took all the rest and threw them away.

Am I seeing 8 bullets in that barrel? And the cylinder holds 6? Someone actually reloaded and kept on going?

Yeah, you'd think they'd figure something out after the first six. It appears to be an N-frame, so they don't make anything this nice anymore and the A-hole ruined it.

Notice how the caliber keeps getting bigger the further back in line you go.

What an amateur: there's still room in the barrel for more bullets.

That's how someone can kill 6 people with one shot. With two bullets to spare!

this pic is from an article about reloading and showing how squib loads can fill up a barrel, in a revolver the cylinder gap can be a gas relief valve, unlike a sealed semi auto barrel

We'd all prefer an NOS one for sure, but even going the custom barrel route would but the ol' girl back in action where she deserves

Some people should not own guns. I know it's their right, but they still shouldn't be allowed around them.
