I've had it happen with .22 when I pulled a handful of my pocket and dropped one on some concrete. It is obviously more likely to happen with rimfire, though. It isn't exactly a safe occurrence, but it isn't like a gun is going off. If you get hit by anything it will be a hot casing as it leaves the heavier load behind.

It also looks like he triggered something with his left hand right at the 0:12 sec mark.

It's almost like the primers are called "percussion caps" for a reason.

I have reloaded and fired 10s of thousands of rounds through a reloader that drops the live round through a chute into a drawer 2 feet below. I know a lot of guys whose number would be in the 100s of thousands. I've dropped countless loaded shells on concrete at the trap range. At the bigger shoots there are literally thousands of people fumbling with thousands of rounds of ammo as they transfer rounds from boxes to their shell pouches. I have never heard of this happening even once as an urban legend. Not to say it's impossible, but when that shell rolled off the table- all the lead is on the opposite end of the shell than the primer and would almost always hit the ground first. It would then have to bounce, flip 180, and land squarely on a sharp object precisely on the primer with enough force to set it off. If it were a rimfire .22 i could see it.  And as someone else pointed out- the plastic and brass would be the problem, not the shot as it would stay put.

I was maybe going to make a Road Warrior reference but that was obviously staged. Boo!
 
2012-11-18 11:07:15 AM
Not only is this highly unlikely in my opinion why is the entire blast seen at table level if it fell to the floor and popped? I also call b.s.!
 
2012-11-18 11:12:13 AM
How is that possible? It's not...fake.
 
2012-11-18 11:22:41 AM
Fake. I can throw shotgun shells across my living room all day and let them bounce off of the terrazzo harmlessly. Primers do not work that way; you need a good, solid strike on the primer itself, not the back of the shell, to set it off.

You have to smack a bare primer pretty hard with a hammer on a concrete floor to make it go off. Yes, I was young and foolish once.

Once, at the top of a stairwell, I pulled out a brand new pack of smokes and dropped them 3 stories. Found it at the bottom standing on its head. Perfectly packed.

Some guys are lucky.
 
2012-11-18 11:46:14 AM
Fake and lame, they don't go off just from dropping them.
 
2012-11-18 11:48:40 AM
I call complete bowlshirt on this one. No (properly constructed) shell/round should just 'go off' when dropped from 3-4' - especially a shotgun shell. I've hunted for years and have never ever heard of this carp happening - even with dumbasses who TRY to fire them with the antiquated 'shell in a vice and a tack nail/hammer' attempt.

Now boy, when you hammer those bullets you hammer them AWAY from your sister.
 
2012-11-18 12:28:52 PM
I would think it's fake for the reasons already states above, but there are holes blown in the wall and you can see the shiat on the table being blasted. Perhaps it is real and just a one-in-a-million fluke?

not saying the explosion and resulting damage are not real but the shotgun shell wouldn't explode at table level so I think there was either a gun just below table level or some other rig to fire a shell and create the damage seen.
 
2012-11-18 12:34:51 PM
Why didn't the second shell blow up too..it's rolling towards the edge then disappears

You can hear the shell bounce. The shell winds up loosing all that energy from falling off the table and doesnt go off until after it bounces...... Fake.

/dropped plenty of rounds myself
 
2012-11-18 02:36:30 PM
I don't even own a gun, but with my minimal time around them I thought this was b.s. from the outset.

This is unlikely, but I suppose it's technically possible, which is the best kind.

Not sure if it's real or not, but...

Working a closing shift at a gas station years ago (probably twenty five years ago, damn I'm getting old), and it was slow. It was a nice summer evening, and as I was walking around, I spotted a .22 round on the ground. Bored out of my skull, I picked it up, looked at it (yep, that's a .22 bullet), then for some reason I threw it pretty hard. It hit the sidewalk and went off, and I jumped about three feet in the air. Not that anyone should need to be told this, but never throw rimfire cartridges at hard concrete.

Ok, IF it's not fake, one possible explanation is kinked primer and "slow burn."

If you look real close at the primer on the shell he shows the camera at the 4 second mark, you can see the primer has been struck by a firing pin. If you've got a) crap ammo, or b) a crap gun, sometimes you have to drop the hammer on a round a couple times to get it to go off (had this experience with a friend's springfield 1903 and some ammo older than my grandpa).

I've heard it called a "slow burn" when a primer is hit once and doesn't go off, but then does later randomly. It's like a slow burn, but in actuality the damaged primer is just very very unstable. This is why when I hit a dead primer at the range (has happened) I rechamber the round and try again a couple times just to be sure it really is dead. Only time I've ever had a dead primer on a cartridge less than 50 years old is when I screwed up some handloads something fierce (didn't dry the brass out well enough after washing in an ultrasonic cleaner), but I've had more than a few primers take more than one hit to go off, especially in old/worn out guns or on guns people have "tuned" to have light trigger pulls.

He has a shell in his left hand.
The blast and flash go straight OUT of his hand and towards the wall.

He triggered something in his hand to shoot the wall. Dumb redneck.

No it doesn't, that's a trick of the eye. If you pause it on the frames during the blast, you can clearly see the blast is behind the table. If it went off in his hand, all of that blast would be above the table, not behind it.
 
2012-11-18 11:45:55 PM
Real or fake what is supposed to be happening is that the SHELL THAT ROLLS OFF THE TABLE AND FALLS ON THE FLOOR is somehow set off when it hits the ground. Anyone who thinks the shell in his hand went off is in need of diagnosis.
 
2012-11-18 11:46:49 PM
You guys are missing the obvious-- the muzzle flash effect-- the amount of time it took for the shell to drop and hit the floor means it was a good foot or two. I've never heard of shotgun shells causing 2 foot long (not diameter?) explosions. Besides, the flash looks fake as fark and for a flash that bright, it's odd that none of the shadows in the immediate vicinity changed. HEE! HAW! I HAVE SONY VEGAS.
 
2012-11-19 04:43:06 AM
That flash was way too big and bright for it to have come from an uncontained shotgun shell exploding on the floor. Not to mention, it's clearly a cone-shaped blast coming from a muzzle, and the pellets somehow flew up and hit the wall, instead of the plastic casing exploding and flying in every direction. Obviously a gun hidden under the table (also note how despite that huge bright muzzle flash, the area under the table wasn't illuminated, as it would have been if the blast had happened near the floor).

It did take longer. Almost 0.004 seconds longer.

/Or whatever the ignition delay is for a shotgun shell.
