Don't underestimate the power of a .22... Anyhow, the rim split, and the gasses came out the back, finding any way out that they could.


Aw heck, I've had that happen in several revolvers.  I just dropped them by a gunsmith for a look-see and they never had to have any work done.

then promptly found the ones I thought I'd imagined.


There must be some rule about that.  Seems to be the way things happen to everyone I know.

I just ordered couple of 1 gig memory modules for my laptop.  The gig I had just isn't enough anymore.  This software stuff just keeps getting bigger.

Jeremy, it's a 22LR rimfire, how the heck did you blow it up?  Get a round trapped in the barrel from a light load? 

Is your hand OK?..    Now we know why safety glasses are a really good idea.

And yes, my hand is fine.


I recalled reading something about problems with the Walther. So I did a search on Walter P22 Kaboom. Good you weren't injured.

Well, a P22 is a semi auto, so when it blows, the gas doesn't just go out the side... it goes any where it can. I'm gonna make a youtube vid about how walther handles it, and review their coustimer service.

Good point, I never had anything like that happen with a semi auto.  All my semi autos are larger caliber, .380 is the smallest and all of them are center fire.  Never had one of them blow out the back, when they went nuts, they blew out the ejection port and drove my hand down.

Somebody remind me why we shoot these things.....

And justjed, really, Elmer Fudd language???   It was fun figuring out what you did though.
