This man just did the unthinkable and fired a rifle or shotgun while the barrel was underwater.
Now his weapon has been turned to scrap all caught on video.
Witness the fool who is lucky only his firearm was ruined and not his life.
One of the cardinal rules of gun safety is never put the end of a barrel into water and pull the trigger. The water will act as a barrel obstruction and kaboom.
In this video shared by Facebook we witness a guy who thought the quickest way to catch a fish is to blast it with an unidentified shotgun or rifle. With the barrel underwater dangerously close to the other guy he pulls the trigger. The explosion in the water leaves both men stunned. The barrel of the long gun now resembles a fish spear. After this the foolish shooter sweeps the guy in the red shirt with the destroyed muzzle. That weapon may have another round and is still loaded too. The fail is ridiculously stupid and so easily prevented.
Maybe this guy now can use that ruined firearm as a fish spear. He obviously can’t be trusted with a functioning firearm.
