    To God be the glory..... As a LE veteran, I am relieved, impressed and thankful that:- 1. That your Dad was there 2. That your emergency services were up to the challenge did their professions proud 3. That the Lord preserved you to testify to His glory and honour..... This has encouraged me to subscribe and to stop taking you guys' videos for granted. They are truly a public service. Thanks be to God again through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. Amen.

    I usually skip but I’m glad I didn’t , I can’t imagine what your poor dad was going through while this was all going off.. big up to him!! Well done to you for being strong and surviving by putting your thumb in it.. a great vid not one bit boring, glad you’re on the up.. I had a similar freak accident with a Bowie knife, the really sharp point went into my stomach just below my chest about an inch and partly severed a vein ,blood was squirting out around 6 inch so I put my middle finger in the hole which fit perfectly I lost 5 pints of blood but most had gone into my body and formed a huge bump in my tummy lol.. I’m not going to start a tshirt logo though lol.. it wouldn’t look good stick a middle finger in it lol.. god blessed us both

    So, I’ve had a pretty traumatic life. Lately I’ve struggled with the things I’ve been through. Much similar to what just happened to you, but more than once. Watching this actually gave me a pretty good anxiety attack. All the memory’s of gunshots, pain, blood, heart pain, etc etc etc. here a few days after I saw this, since watching this I can’t really get back to a normal routine. Just shows how strong this guy is and how some people can just brush things of (figure of speech) I now suffer from extreme chest pains since a year ago, dizziness and an inability to cope with simple issues.

Made me crack up, and maybe it'll lighten your load a bit. Wish you the best, and look forward to your colabs with demoranch in the future.

    Hope everyone knows this was a freak accident. As he said it was firing old rounds that aren't even manufactured anymore. I don't know much about 50 cal weapons but usually even blowouts like this don't usually cause this much injury. Not saying people haven't had worse than Scott here but I sure am glad you came out alright.

      Hindsight’s 20/20. This is still a freak accident. He did nothing wrong in handling the gun. I don’t get your “guns are not toys comment”.... he nor anyone said they were and he didn’t treat it like one. Most responsible gun owners will shoot guns their whole lives and never have something like this happen

    Question: I get the round was bad, not the gun GOT IT! But had that round gone off in a standard .50 Cal rifle like what the military uses would the injuries have been less traumatic? Certainly wouldn't have had a cap blown into your face or the throat injury it seems. Not blaming you or your gun at all, just naturally curious how you think it might have played out with a differently constructed gun. Glad your ok, thanks for sharing your story!

    Weird, if you check the function of the jugular veins, they collect the blood from the skull and move it down to the superior vena cava. to the heart. Are you sure you got the names right? This is a quote i ran into multiple times; "The jugular veins are veins that take deoxygenated blood from the head back to the heart via the superior vena cava."
