    Actually your jugular vein returns blood from your head to your lungs. Your carotid artery supplies the blood. If you had ruptured it you would likely have died. Glad you shared this . You are now the poster child for eye protection :) Be well brother and God bless

As much as it sounds bad, I am glad, you made that last shot, if you had not, you still would of most likely fired that round on another occasion, and as such, you may not have been in a position to be more favourable than not!

If you ever come to Jacksonville FL., bring some guns and ammo, lol. I have my own small range in the making as I go. And lots of different guns to shoot.

    Makes me think of the rounds that were sabotaged and left hanging around intentionally to destroy enemy weapons systems. It’s always in my mind with surplus and rounds that have a questionable history.



    8 uur geleden

    One way I can think of to avoid this happening again with large caliber rounds, especially old ones, is to makes sure the weights of each round are very close. A hot round has more powder and will weigh more. God Bless!
