German Machine Gun Blows Up in Shooter’s Face

machine gun blows up

When dealing with any weapon, due care is in order.

This German machine gun shows us just how dangerous an accident can be.

In a video shared on Facebook by Fauerzaesp we see something no one wants to see at a gun range. This machine gun just blew up in the shooter’s face.

While another shooter fires this belt fed machine gun, a jam occurs. The current shooter steps back and another soldier attempts to clear the weapon. With the belt removed and the action open it appears possibly a stuck live round cooks off. The blast is directed right into the soldier’s face. That really had to hurt.

This video goes as a reminder that the slim chance of a hangfire or a cook off of a live cartridge in a weapon is a possibility. Be careful out there.
