BoG 2 is Dead -- Lucky Me

My gas-piston AR is toast, both upper and lower upper trashed, lower receiver slightly bowed, but no cracks visible.

ka-BOOM!

I'm a tad distraught, but I count myself lucky. Still have all my fingers, both eyes, and my oh-so handsome mug. Got some pictures to take and inquiries to make tomorrow.

Up until then, I had a pretty decent time at the Cactus Monthly USPSA Match.

Update: I'm withholding details at least until I hear from the manufacturer. I haven't even received an auto-response from them yet... maybe they're hiding from me :(

    Bummer dude. That'd probably make me skittish for a while.

    Was it something inherent in the design? Or just some bullet in barrel malf?

    Who made this gun?
    I'm always kinda nosy about such things, as I may want to buy one myself, and would like to know about safety, etc.

    I'm with the others, we need a whole lot more information.

    Images, type of ammo, number of rounds, exactly what the hell happened. You know, all the interesting stuff.

    Oh yes. Tell us more! Glad you survived! That stuff ain't funny.

    Been there, done that. Blew up my STI with a double charge thanks to me being a bonehead. Felt like the palms of my hands had been hit with a 2x4. Hard.

    Feel your pain, Blob.
