Bourjaily: Two New Gun Nut Rules

By Phil Bourjaily

 

New Rule Number 1: Don’t Set Your Backpack on Fire

F&S Deputy Editor Slaton White sent me this picture snapped at writer’s seminar at the Blackwater training facility in Mt. Carroll, Illinois. I have pixilated out the face of the shooter to protect his identity.


A nylon knapsack probably isn’t the best rest for a short-barreled carbine with a muzzle brake. As you can see, this barrel isn’t quite long enough to clear the end of the bag. Looking through the scope, the shooter could see the target, but not what was happening at the muzzle. Shortly after this picture was taken, says White: “We noticed this funny smell, and the bag was burning.”

New Rule Number 2: Don’t Get Your Butt Kicked by Elmo

This news story has nothing to do with guns, but still:

Picking a fight with Elmo, a beloved, childlike, helium-voiced muppet, is a tacky move to begin with.

Picking a fight with Elmo and getting your butt kicked is inexcusable.

Do that and you are no longer welcome here. Go read some other blog. It’s harsh, I know, but we have to have standards. I hope Dave will agree.

Yeah.... Well it is funny that rule number one came out. I destroyed my range bag doing the same thing with a Superior Arms AR with a Miculek comp. When I went to pick up the bag by the straps after shooting, they were torn on one end and the zippered flap that covers the bag had a melted hole in it.
At least I got a new bag out of it.

Do you need a scope that is as long as your rifle barrel? I witnessed a guy at the range several years ago shoot a blackpowder rifle in a similar fashion but he had a jersey cloth gun case instead. It didn't melt, instead it burst into flames and was completely burned in about five minutes.

Re: Robin Meade - In an article about getting fit for elk hunting, Petzal once said to pick a stair machine at the gym located directly behind a spandex-clad beauty. I don't have any of those at my gym so I turn on Robin Meade instead. Of course, it helps if you plug your headphones into your mp3 player so you don't actually have to hear her talk.

We had a similar situation to Rule #1 happen at the last M16 qualification. After using the burst function to burn through the remaining live round, someone set the weapon down on the sandbag. The hot barrel melted right through the poly bag. Trying to scrape melted plastic out of the muzzle brake was not fun.

Sitting in the dark back corner of my pop-up blind, doe standing nervously at 40 yards. I finally get my charcoal burned up and pointed out the corner of the window.
With the report of the rifle, I get two sensations!
1. enveloped in hugh cloud of magnificent white smoke!
2. my darkened "sniper" world is suddenly a brightly lit stage!
Apparently, in my haste to collect said doe, the muzzle of the T/C Renegade HAD NOT cleared the window. The muzzle blast had shredded the front portion of the blind with the remnants still holding the cloud of smoke!!

I've seen two instances where not being aware of the muzzle had unintended results. First, I took a shot at a groundhog with a .22/250 while using the bed rail of a pick-up as a rest. The muzzle blast reflecting off the truck bed was absolutely deafening. My ears were ringing to two days. Second, a buddy took a long poke at a whitetail doe out grazing in a field with his .300 Weatherby, rested on a sandbag on the hood of his new F-150. The muzzle flash and blast scorched a circle about 12" around right through the paint of his hood and actually left a pockmark like dent in the sheet metal.

To prove to the nay-sayers, copy this and show them that the bolt is already closed and ready to fire another round, while the empty is only 12 in. away and fire is still coming from the barrel. The semi auto has come along way.

Dale,

I was thinking the same thing.

I figure at the time the photo was taken the projectile is well down range and the powder is still burning. The gas has already forced the bolt back and forth approximately 2 inches each direction and thrown the casing 12 inches forward in darn near the time it takes the powder to burn.

The mechanical engineering and physics depicted by the photo is amazing.

Works during hunting season with coat and gloves on but during summer at the range it's a no go. Big time.

Another Gun Nut rule for survival or getting your trophy:

Know how many rounds are in your weapon and if there is one chambered. During drills, instructors would "freeze the problem" and ask each one how many rounds are left in your weapon at that moment. Unless you liked runnning and doing pushups, you best know the answer.

Whap happened to shooting sticks or a shooting Bench such as the sled???? I am handicapped as walk with a cane, so when hunting I carry my Bi-pod for a rest and use the sled at then bench. MY health and weakness in my arms are conductive to off hand shooting, as i prefer a 9-10 lb gun. The Stoney Point shoting Bi-pod works well for me, last time in MT killed a Mulie at 345 yds using the Bi-pod. My nerves, a little out of wack so a sand bad doesent do a lot for me and I never shoot from inside by ground blind, the bbl is always out the tent, with anytype firearm i may be using.Especially B/P as I want that white clous outside so may be able to see the deer if he don;t fall at the hit, but as a rule they do as I prefer a frontal shot just under the white patch, but will not pass a side or quartering either. Never tried the Texas job, as out whitetails don;t run straight away they always make a turn about time you ready to fire. AS we have small fields to hunt surrounded by woods.
