    Marlon,

    You may want to look at that video a little closer. The ejecta had left the barrel prior to the breech bolt opening. If you fire a shell in a slide gun without holding onto the forearm this will happen (unless it is a m 12).

    The NRA did similar tests several years ago with 4-5 double barrel guns. None blew the first time. All suffered barrel damage that resulted an a later failure.
