A runaway machine gun can ruin your day or others quickly.

This Thompson submachine gun takes off in a terrifying ride for the shooter.

Witness the footage of a runaway machine gun that will make you sweat.


A video shared by YouTuber PowerModz shows just how scary a runaway machine gun can actually be.

A well worn machine gun with internal issues might want to fire even when your finger is off the trigger. That is exactly what happened to this shooter. While firing bursts the machine gun just kept on going. Luckily the shooter and the range officer knew what to do and kept the weapon on target. Just watch that target dance under the barrage of .45 caliber slugs.

The moral of the story is always take care of your firearms. Worn, broken parts and dirty guns can cause malfunctions. Stay safe out there.
