That kid is asking to be seriously hurt doing that kind of crap. What kind of headspace tool/gauge was that? You could take 1 look at it before he shot it, see the welds and know that it was going to fail not to mention that there is no real way of knowing if he actually had it set right prior to shooting it.
Poor design, terrible material choice but at least he realized the danger and was a good distance away. Two thumbs up for trying while all the other little turds in his generation are glued to video games and chanting hope and change
well, at least he did not get killed or kill someone else. what he made is a pipe bomb. Brings a whole new meaning to "pressure cooker." Perhaps his engineering team should start on a smaller caliber like - 38 spec. and work up from there.....
His YouTube channel has a fair number of videos. I watched some last night, and I think he did work up to this. He did nearly build a pipe bomb, but I have to give him some credit. What appears to be a lack of professional training has given him a lot of freedom to imagine and build stuff. I never would've considered locking a barrel/breach like that. It obviously didn't work well as constructed, but it is interesting to see.
