    I'll start with these beauties...

    Top barrel is AR-10 - bottom is Uzi with over 15 rounds in it.

    No injuries....

    I don't have any personal pictures of squib loads but I'll share crazy ones I've seen on the net.

    These actually look more like metal fatigue/ over powered loads.

    OK heres my story. I bought a used Bryco 59 (I here the OMGs already) 9mm at a local gun show. This was purchased as a "truck gun" at a good price. My son and I shot this weapon at the range and put about two clips thru it (25/26 rounds). Reloaded the clips and on the second shot the slide blew away from the frame and into the air. We were shooting hand loads. Lesson learned.
