    This is a definite Darwin Candidate. I think he lived so he may not qualify.

    It's hard to believe some people can be this stupid. Nuff said.

    That's not real. Probably made by an anti gun person

    Yes, after a hang fire, look down the barrel.

    I also think it was an anti gun skit, the muzzle blast that close would have decked him, and the sound does work out with reaction

    IF that is for real, this guy should have his gun privledges revolked for being a F'n idiot. This is the crap that gives the rest of us safety minded gun owners a bad name.

    The sound pause might be explained because the camera had a loud noise cutoff. Some micas when hit with a sound that may ruin the system has a built in protector. The cut-off is less obvious in the first shots, but it's there. I agree -- luck protects the stupid....cya

    <i>"Holy Sh*t is this guy for real? That should have taken the top of his head off."</i>

    Not if the shell was bad. For example, if the powder was damp or wet, what little good powder that did go off might be so weak that the was and shot barely made it out of the muzzle. Sometimes they'll stick in the barrel. So it's possible he got hit with it but it was too slow to do more than a dull impact.

    This assumes the video is not fake.

    If he was by himself, he had the camera on a tripod and that would explain why the camera was solid still and no one got excited, asking if he was alright and the camera jiggling all over the place while the camera operator went running up to the idiot,

    or

    it was staged and everyone knew what was in the script.

    If he was by himself, there was no intro to the reason for the setup, which makes you wonder what was he doing and why.

    If was going to film the shots hitting the target, I would have the camera beside me or slightly in front, to see what is happening to the target.

    The only reason I would want the camera to be behind me, would be to see if I was lifting my head when shooting on a trap field, but then who know why some people do things like this setup.

    He did have his "Orange Safety Vest" on though. If your gonna do something dumb, you want to make sure you have your safety vest on.

    Smoke on the first two shots, and no smoke on the last. Seems odd. Also the hat comes off his head in one piece. It would be missing the bill, or shredded at best. Watch it frame by frame.

    If it was for real he wouldn't be standing. He would be on his backside holding his head. His yes would have caught the blast also. There is not enough there to be real.

    Still scary looking, even if staged.

    Could be a useful training tool, if presented properly.
