Know Your Reloader

A friend of mine keeps this in his shop. I don’t know where he got it, but the story is a man brought it in after a kaboom from gun show reloads. I am guessing he wanted to know what his options were as far as the shop fixing it? Replacing it? Warranty work?

Yeah. Really.

So now it sits. Unfixed. As a talisman warning newcomers of the dangers of strange women…cough…cough…I mean strange reloads.

Notice the crack at the top right.

Special note. If you don’t appreciate how strong a Ruger 45 Blackhawk frame is? Trust me. Ole boy had to work pretty hard to kaboom a Blackhawk.

    The amount of energy needed to bend up that hunk of steel is tremendous! That guy is lucky that he still has his hand, let alone his fingers… Yikes!


    • I did inquire specifically as to the medical condition of the shooter. I was told he suffered no injuries.

      It’s almost hard to believe.
