    If you're going to shoot one-handed, make sure your other hand is nowhere near the muzzle... don't shoot one-and-a-half handed... you'll end up doing what this guy did.

    I've read other stories of people putting one through their left hand, or at least getting nasty powder burn because they were either cupping their right hand, or not gripping at all with the left, and double-tapping an unintended shot.

    He's lucky he only put one through his hand...

    It looks like he was using a vertical foregrip attached to the accessory rail and it came off during that last burst. You can see it lying on the floor in the last few frames of the video.

    Oops. Missed that small fact. Guess I look dumb now. I guess I'll change my first post to, "don't trust plastic tension screws on plastic to hold under repeated fully-automatic jarring".

    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    If you click over to the youtube page for the OP video the write up on it confirms (in layman's terms) that there was a vertical foregrip, apparently on a picatinny rail.

    I do not want my hand that close to the muzzle end of any pistol. I'll stick with a 2 handed normal grip TYVM.

    A little OT, but longwatch, how do you embed youtube videos?

    Shock hitting him first and he has to "man up" in front of his friends. Just like the DEA guy who discharged a round into his leg. They both played it cool.

    If they were alone.. they would be screaming and cursing!!

    Wow, that cop in the classroom really put the fear of guns in those kids...thats great. They almost panicked when the women brought out that rifle/shotgun whatever it was, (blurry video).

    On the other hand, that is pretty tough to keep on with the lecture after getting shot.

    On the third hand, now those kids also think gun wounds aren't that bad.

    LOL!! Every time I've seen that video, it stopped well before they brought out the rifle (looked like an AR type to me). That's absolutely hilarious how they react! "PUT IT DOWN!!" rotflmao!!

    Anyway I'm not surprised that this guy, and the guy in the original video, didn't freak out and start screaming and cursing. I yell and scream when I stub my toe on something, 'cause dangit it hurts! But the one time I was in a car accident (deer), I might have been in a lot of pain, but I didn't so much as curse. I think it's somewhat natural for a lot of people to stay calm when they realize something really bad just happened..

    I hope this post does not cause controversy, but I could not help myself after watching this video. I knew that if I posted it here, I would spend days laughing at everyone's responses.

    Ok even after watching that 3 times I still can's see how he managed to do that. Maybe I'm just blind. But it looked like it went through the webbing between his thumb and index finger.

    Yea, I am not sure either, which is why I look forward to everyone's comments. It almost looks as if the firearm has an extra stock that broke off during firing.

    I don't see anybody getting shot in the hand. What I do see is somebody's left hand possibly hit by the slide on its rearward movement. That's my observation. He may have been faking the whole thing.

    This video has been discussed in another thread -- I can't find it right now. The Glock 18 had a vertical foregrip attached to the accessory rail and it came off while firing. You can see it lying on the ground in the last few seconds of the video.

    That website just posted it, so I figured no one had seen it yet.

    That makes perfect sense, because I said in the previous post, it looked as if there was another stock (the foregrip, as you mention) he was holding onto, that broke off during firing.

    Whether or not the round went through his hand, it ended up hitting the ceiling right above the target. If you look closely above the target and not pay attention to the malfunction, you will see the round strike.

    I can see exactly what happened.

    They were shooting a Glock 18. The guy, who possibly didn't know how to shoot (and nobody bothered to show him), was attempting to steady the weapon by resting the barrel on his weak hand. Then, when he put it into full-auto mode, the excess recoil caused the gun to fly back, while his hand remained in place.

    =pwnt

    Edit: Actually, the front grip explanation is pretty convincing. I may have to concede defeat.

    If so, I have to say, putting a front grip on a Glock 18 is dumb. The last thing you want is a full-auto piece falling apart in your hands. If you can't fire the thing the way it was built, I would recommend buying another automatic weapon. Barring that, red thread lock.

    http://www.seger.nl/homepage/2006fun...18%20auto2.mpg

    This guy has no problem without some dumb front grip.

    Eh, the gun was in full-auto mode, and he fired a decent burst. It could have been another round that hit the ceiling.

    I didnt know it was full auto, it looked MAYBE, on the last shot his hand ended up in front of it when the foregrip came off
