.50

I had to roll my eyes when at 27 seconds the masked gunman pumped his fist as he fired his handgun. :roll:

According to 50 cent “The Gun” has a “socially conscious” theme. “It’s about how a weapon goes from manufacturing to its distribution point, to being in a citizen’s custody — and how it ends up in the wrong hands,” he said. “We watch the actual gun travel through a few different people’s hands.” (Source)

Hmmmm… I wonder if this is a movie that the Brady campaign is going to approve of? :P  Ha, not likely.

The dropping of the bullet in the guy’s drink at the bar (1:38), and the line he says is pretty awesome.

Besides the inevitable scenes in this movie that will be worthy of an eye roll, I’ll probably go see in the theater (in 2011 apparently according to the IMDB page).

P.S. Nice trigger discipline for the poster 50

While mounting the M2 machine gun onto the turret system of his MATV during pre-combat checks, this soldier experienced difficulty inserting the locking pin on the MOD 93 machine gun mount.  The soldier then attempted to force the locking pin into place with a rock. After this failed, he then secured a loose .50 cal. round, using it to hammer at the locking pin, attempting to force the locking pin into place.  After several hits with the .50 cal. round, the primer activated, setting the round off in the soldier’s hand. Extensive injuries were suffered to his right hand, middle, ring and pinky finger.

*Warning Very Graphic*

It’s really unfortunate when Darwin comes for soldiers… but hitting a live round? COME ON.. how does he think his machine gun fires?  This incident would have been a bit more understandable if it occurred in the heat of combat, but the memo specifically states the soldier was mounting the M2 onto the turret, pre-combat.

On the bright side, I guess he get a ticket out of Trashcanistan.

The Rifle:

The Damage:

The Pain:

From the thread over at calguns:

I didn’t take pictures of the shooter out of respect for their privacy.. but his hands/arms were injured pretty badly. He was obviously in tremendous pain as he and his buddies waited quite a while for paramedics. Are paramedics/EMTs supposed to take their sweet time when walking onsite?

Anyhow.. I was told that the shooter(s) often times used a hammer to close the bolt. Feel sorry for the pain and damage the shooter had to endure.. but that’s the potential consequence of improper reloading and firearm use. (Source)

Judging by the pictures, there appears to be no damage forward of the chamber. It is probably an “out of battery discharge” meaning that the round somehow discharged before it was fully chambered.  There appears to be some sort of damage 1/2 way down the buffer tube, but I assume that it is probably from the buffer spring or weight when the Kaboom happened.

As some of you know, I am not a huge fan of putting a .50 in the AR platform.  I am not saying it can’t handle the recoil and doesn’t work flawlessly for lots of people.  I just personally am not comfortable using a platform which was developed for a significantly lower powered round with such a beast.

The rifle is from BOHICA ARMS

Glock owners can rest easy tonight that the story wasn’t about one of us.  Maybe we need some AR platform .50 pictures like THESE :P
