We had an injury at my range last week when a mini 14 self destructed. We think he was using some crappy mag that fed two rounds. It looks like both rounds went off with chamber open. there were parts every where. He was very lucky that he only had brass buried in face ,forehead and arms. How he survived I dont know. Gun on the way back to Ruger to see what they say.

We had a kid in basic training with us get messed up when his M16A2 upper receiver tore apart in his face. Apparently the person who used it the day prior was cleaning it, and used the wrong sized cleaning brush in the barrel, and it got jammed. He never got it out, and never told anybody. Kid with us went to shoot it and kaboom. Bullet had nowhere to go.



I still don't see how MTI's at the range didn't catch it, but whatever. Kid didn't lose an eye or anything, luckily. Although he was a little shook up, and rightfully so.
