Press-Check Gone Wrong

Viewer discretion advised. The image shown is being reported as a user mistake while performing a press-check. Caliber 9mm. Ammunition FMJ. The bulk of the damage was likely caused by the expanding gases at contact distances, not the bullet itself.

Likely not related, but this image reminds me of the typical injury when reloading a certain style of derringer. But I’ll save that for another time.
