Accident reports?

Unread postAuthor: risto » Thu Mar 22, 2007 1:25 pm

Well, after all these useless debates about "ABS vs. PVC", i've noticed a trend: "PVC WILL SHRAPNEL!" or "EXPLODE!" It makes our hobby seem extremely dangerous. I don't doubt the apparent threats but does anyone have any accident stories or maybe photos of some of these accidents?

Just thought maybe with some newspaper articles or bloody photos of these threats actually occurring, it could deter more of these accidents from ever happening. (I'm not even sure if that made sense)

IIRC Fuzzy Scorpion got some pics of his Hybrid when it failed.
Lucky has pics of his busted union on his site too, I think.

Most of the stuff of broken spud guns you find on youtube and google is from people making spud guns from stuff like...plantpots.

Well I had my LAW roll off the table (bad side of round cannon) with pressure in it, luckily all it did was snap off the elbow that had the pressure gauge on it, and that it wasn’t loaded because it went off.
