While hunting roosters in western MN two weekends ago, one of the hunters was using a Browning Gold 12 ga. He fired on a bird and when he fired the 2nd round the shotshell fired while the action was not all the way forward. Needless to say the gun blew up. The action jammed and the bolt cracked, the aluminum sides were bulged out, he had powder burns on his hands but luckily not his eyes. I am speculating that the bolt did not properly lock into place and yet allowed the firing pin to activate the round. The gun is totally shot. Looking for ideas on how this might have occurred. Needless to say I am glad I shoot Benelli !!
