Is that the problem? Reply I’m sure the camera man needed to change his underroos after that one. This is an example of a full auto configuration which is too big for a shoulder mounted gun. It would be better mounted on a turret or even on the ground with a tripod. Reply or bother to put a compensator on Reply I don’t understand the point of a full auto .50 Beowulf. The mag capacity just can’t handle full auto. Reply LOL. A very nice range toy but deadly to anyone else around you to be sure on full auto! The second time around seemed more controlled but still, come on, after the first two round you will not be punching holes in anything but the sky…..or an errant camera man! too bad about the comment site. Can we upload avatars to the old site? Reply Ok, mistakes and misjudgments can happen, but that’s why you try something new a bit less casually than that. I would never shoot with those guys again, if I saw that kind of bone headed stunt. Reply The full auto .50 Beowulf is not something that is being marketed as a military weapon or anything like that. It is used to demonstrate the ridgity of the Fast Rail quick change barrel system from Templar Custom. That is me shooting in the video. I did let my cameraman get out too far in front of me but he wasn’t in any danger. The camera is zoomed in so it wasn’t as close of a call as it looks. Reply Were you wearing ear pro? If so, what type? Reply Yes, Surefire Sonic Defenders. I wear ear pro even when shooting .22s and suppressed firearms. I just don’t like over ear style pro. Reply Oh I know who that is Mr. Surgical. Precision! I just saw this yesterday.. also thought the camera man was a bit ahead of the muzzle. Reply This was only a small portion of what all was fired the two days of this shoot. Thousands of rounds were put down range with more camera men than you can count and we never even came close to having a safety issue. If you were not in attendance then it’s hard to tell the proper perspective due to angles and zoom. But the shooter had more than enough back stop and was nowhere close to taking out any cameras or camera men. Reply Okay, that looked scary, but maybe more scary that it actually was. Camera angles can do that. Reply Meh, he took his finger off the go switch before the recoil made swiss cheese of the camera man, if you watch the replay his had his finger off well before he would have done any harm, the recoil pushed him the rest of the way. Little dangerous, but they fixed it for the second go. Any time you try an untested platform things tend to get a little hairy. That goes for cars, tools, guns, rockets anything really. Hell Mythbusters didn’t find out that the bullet proof glass safety barriers they were using in the first season weren’t thick enough till the second or third, and despite their cannon mishap they have one of the safest teams goings. Reply It looks dry. I hope there were no forest fires started. Reply any low flying aircraft get hit? Reply Looks like some legit pucker factor, there I’m going to stick with my semi-auto .50 Beouwlf, thanks. Reply someone somehow believes that barreling an AR is gunsmithing??? is that whats wrong??
