  • Why are there 9k dislikes??!! wtf??!! someone almost dies and explains what happened and you decide that's bad??!! Well anyway, I don't usually watch your vids, but I heard what happened and that's completely badass that you made a shirt relating to the incident like it was almost humorous!! This will probably get lost in the comments, but it's great to hear that you are recovering!!

  • glad you're good and making a recovery , and also glad you will keep making the videos , just stay away from rare old ammo , you said it yourself you nobody knows if they are hot or not , or what it went through and how many hands it changed before you got it!

  • The jugular vein returns blood from your brain to your heart, it doesn't carry blood *to* your brain. It's certainly bad to pinch off, I just want to make sure you know. And best of luck making a full recovery.

  • Glad u are ok Scott. Love your show bro!!

  • Glad you’re still here

  • Glad you made it, no more rounds from a manufacturer no longer around, ok?

  • I've watched this video & the question I have is where did the cartridge itself go?

  • Glad you are still here.

  • Do you believe in miracles? HE'LL YEA!!!!

  • Glad your okay man. God bless

  • Praise God you’re alive! Crazy story! Sorry for the injury’s, but glad your alive to tell about it.

  • I feel bad for you I hope you recover and stop using guns it’s for ur safety

  • Praise God and the cadre of Angels he had watching over you! Here's wishing you a complete recovery, and so glad you're here to explain your experience. I learned a lesson about shooting old ammo of unknown provenance a few years ago. While my experience was not life threatening, as yours was, it was nonetheless terrifying, and could have been much worse. The lesson: don't buy old ammo at a gun show no matter how cheap it is. The pressures that build up in old, weak cartridges are NO JOKE, and saving a few bucks is not worth your life!

  • where is the video?

  • Was just about to eat some pasta and you made me fuckin cry mate

  • Thank God and those doctors and nurses 🙏

  • What am absolute legend. Your victory is inspirational. Keep strong like you have been.

  • boss

  • First 10 seconds of the video and im like woah not clickbait

  • 4:37 the moment when the rifle explote

  • This is terrible!! But you also had an amazing luck cuz u still alive!! Get better soon!!

  • 😓😥

  • I want to cry :( I'm sorry sir

  • you are a warrior


  • This guy experienced a fucking movie in a few minutes

  • God is good !! Blessed to be alive ,

  • It’s strange to like a Video where a mans rifle blows up on him I know but the likes I’m certain are liking the fact you are still above ground talking to us. I know you’ll be back soon again, a Brother said something to me that resonated “it’s who we are” and you are Kentucky Ballistics my Friend and see you soon putting rounds down range. Stay safe and Semper Fidelis

  • Dude god saved you thank god your all right

  • You are one lucky dude. Your dad is awesome!

  • Are you going to get another 50 cal

  • Thank God for his grace, your dad and your thumb!

  • Blessings bro.

  • I’d be weighing those rounds 😂

  • Welcome to the surviving certain death club.

  • God bless you dude. Well you already are...

  • Always wondered what firing a 50cal would feel like. Not curious anymore... Yikes!

  • Glad ur alive brotha. That looked intense and you dont look like some wimp. Thats Crazy man.
