    It's Caesar Guerini's fault.

    Another good reason to wear safety glasses.

    Well you all were right to tell me to dump that powder last week NO its not my gun!! but dont want any part of something like that. I aways loaded the low end of the recipe for all my hand guns, a lil less punch and a lot less worry. Thanks all for the advice!

    Hey! Maybe we should do a report about the blow-up. Maybe the gun manufacturer is at fault. After all, someone said the chamber walls look thin.

    Then we could post it on the Internet and...

    Well, maybe not! Seems like there were some other guys who did that over in Virginia. Didn't seem to work out like they planned.

    Look at the bright side. It still has 3 usable chambers.
