This pic was sent to me in an e-mail, I'm not sure of the back story, but definitely not a shopped pic.  I wonder where the rear sight and top strap ended up?

I seen that pic a while ago, and I think(foggy), it was a double charge. Knock on wood, after 19 years of rollin' my own, I've not had a double.

I'm not a gun guy, but it occurred to me that it's a good thing pistols are usually fired at arms length, unlike a rifle where the ammo being fired is much closer to the face. 

If that happened to a rifle or shotgun...............

I seen a gentleman at the range with a rem. mod. 700 in .270. He had shot 3 rounds fine, then the forth one sounded louder than the others. Turns out he was off a little when measuring that load out. It didn't scatter, but the bolt lugs froze up, and we couldn't get the bolt open. I would imagine a rifle chamber can explode, thank God its never happened to me or anyone I know.

The worst thing I've done to date is get buck fever with a finishing shot with my muzzle loader, and sent the ram rod with the ball. I was loading the deer in my truck when a conservation officer offered a hand, I was telling him my blunder, and he jokingly asked me if I had an archery license as well.

The fellow who works with me has a black powder license for deer hunting around here.  Can't hunt deer in Mass with a rifle, at least not in this area.  So it's bow, shotgun with deer slugs, or black powder.

The bow and black powder seasons are a couple of weeks longer.

I believe in the version that I saw, the malfunction was blamed on reloaded Chinese ammunition.  It may have had some type of "spin" put on it, but that is what I saw.

From the other pics, I believe it was a S&W that blew the top off.  Those things are built like tanks too.

The scale never lies, but yours might be broken.

I do alot of shooting and reloading and never had anything like that happen. I have seen quite a few pics like that and most of the time it is caused by the wrong caliber or too much powder when reloaded.

When reloading MORE is not better. I shot 100 rounds of reloads out of my pistol last week at the range; three failed to fire. Weird feeling when you pull the trigger and nothing happens.

Caution, don't glance down the barrell when this happens.

It was a 629 and the story blamed it on chinese ammo.  I didn't include that because it was basically third hand.  My biggest issue when I reloaded was making sure that the primers were not seated too deep........powder was always monitored closely using a Lyman dump and weighing about every 7th or 8th load.
