    Palmetto State Armory AR15 KABOOM Thanks To A CLUELESS Shooter

    Palmetto State Armory AR15 KABOOM Thanks To A CLUELESS Shooter


    http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2...y-ar15-kaboom/



    The Rancho Deliverance Shooting Range located in Lake Elsinore in Southern California recently posted these pictures on their Facebook page of a Palmetto State Armory AR-15 that went kaboom. Apparently a customer had some sort of jam and asked someone at the range to borrow a cleaning rod, according to Rancho Deliverance Shooting Range:
    Palmetto State Armory AR kaboom, customer asked to borrow a cleaning rod, apparently he thought he could pound a live round out of the chamber. This is why we get pissed off and have to kick people off the range from time to time
    A commenter on the Facebook posting chimed in a with a bit more info:
    Was told from folks that were there, he tried to unjam with a cleaning rod when the bolt slammed forward and fired . The rifle was not taken apart before trying.
    This isn’t a knock against Palmetto State Armory at all, they make good AR-15 uppers and parts for the price (I have two uppers from them). This seems to be the result of a careless shooter who didn’t take the proper steps to ensure their rifle was safe before attempting to unjam a round. This is definitely not the first firearms related catastrophic failure we’ve posted about, there was that AR-15 kaboom from reloaded ammo we posted a while back where the case head failed causing escaping gas to split the upper receiver into pieces. Then there was the kaboom where a shooter fired a 300 BLK round in a 5.56 AR-15. Firing incorrect ammo seems to happen pretty often. Sometimes the shooter walks away unscathed but gun failures can cause horrific injuries, just like with this Marlin Lever Action Kaboom likely caused by a barrel obstruction. Stay safe out there kids!

                  The thread title implies the fault is a PSA rifle. Not fair.

                    Good grief, what are people thinking. That could have ended so much worse.

                      I have a pile of brass that an LGS gave me that I use in classes when discussing using proper ammunition in the proper gun.
                      Seems there were a couple shooters at a local range who figured out a new an improved way of re chambering rifles on the spot.
                      They wrapped electric tape around the cartridge to snug up the fit, like the .35 Remington's that were tapped up to "fit" in a 30-.06.
                      I shit you not.
                      Not one shell.
                      Not two.
                      Not even a half dozen.
                      These fucking idiots pumped over a DOZEN rounds downrange doing this, wondering the whole time WHY IS THE BRASS BLOWN UP, while pulling the rounds out of the chamber with pliers.
                      Luckily? No injuries, (at least for any innocents nearby), personally I was rooting for a hot sharp steel chamber lobotomy, but I never get my way, look at the idiot in the white house.

                      That's why I'm afraid of a pinned mag in an AR. There are lots of YouTubes of AR malfunctions like squibs and the common denominator is the mag blowing out the bottom.
                      Seems like the mag blowing out the well directs a lot of blast energy that way, down and away from the shooter.

                        Mag will still blow out, or worst case the base plate blows off.
