    Doesn't take much looking to see Vulcans reputation with BMGs. I thought they had stopped making them do to all the problems.

    If I was that guy I would try to sue them for a REALLY nice Barrett and a lifetime supply of ammo.

    I don't know if it is the same one, since there appears to be several Vulcan misfires on the web, but it apparently happened when loading it.
    I am always sorry to hear of anyone being injured by a firearm, but this incident does not appear to be the fault of the shooter.

    Sorry to see the guy get hurt

    I stay far away from any Hesse/Vulcan/Blackthorne firearm or whatever they call themselves these days

    I have read in the past where some ranges won't allow Vulcan 50's on their range....

    There was an amazingly long interval before someone started yelling for a cease fire. After that, a range officer (I think) starts yelling for "a shitton of towels". That's not the sort of response that gives me the warm fuzzies.
