  • As someone who’s also survived a freak life threatening accident.. Those moments with family along with your own thoughts before going under are very powerful and potentially life changing. Seriously people, appreciate the little things but don’t sweat the small stuff. Hug your dog or cat, tell your SO and kids you love them cause it can all change in a blink. Crazy experience Scott! I’m glad your still here to share it!

  • Scott I don't know you and or your channel. I am truly grateful for your recovery. To paraphrase the Great full Dead " We need a miracle every day ". I am also pleased with your desire to continue with your videos a freak accident should not change your passion. I don't have the experience that you do, but I saw nothing in the video that you could have prevented. I do have a word of advice for those with no explosive experience, old explosives get more dangerous as they age. I my youth I worked with a licensed blaster, one of the first things he taught me was that new dynamite was very safe, but old dynamite especially if it was sweating was extremely dangerous and could explode on simply by being dropped something that doesn't happen with new powder. In ending good luck with your recovery

  • Just saw this today. I am so happy for you and your family that your quick thinking and action didn't remove you from their lives. It is hard growing up without a a dad. And to have had such a possible public death would have ben another layer of bad. Take care love on that family of yours brother and to God be the glory!

Glad you’re still alive to tell about it. Scary stuff. Glad you didn’t let it scare you away. 🤘🏻 Safe shooting brother! SEMPER FI!

    • @Mike Parker That’s not what religion is at all but okay you are entitled to your opinion. My point still stands on everything else I said though. You are a pathetic example of a man trying to belittle someone’s religious beliefs on a video where he is addressing almost losing his life. Blows my mind you don’t see how pathetic that is. You are a grown man you should know better than that and know when to bite your tongue. Very immature

    • Get out of here with that nonsense. I swear some people have nothing better to do. He almost lost his life and given what happened he still put on a positive attitude to give us a video on the situation and yet you are going to say something like that? You must live a sad life. I mean how hard could it possibly be to just watch the video and move on if you have nothing positive to say to the guy. Instead of telling him you are happy he is still alive you are calling his prayers bullshit and useless. I can almost guarantee you that if someone you love is nearing death out of nowhere you are going to learn about prayer real quick.

  • I’m glad you’re still here! We are watching this video together as a family to teach our children about making safe choices always with firearms. If you hadn’t made the safe choices you did, you might not be here to this day. Very glad God and your dad had eyes on you so that you continue to be here to this day.

Plugged the tip of the barrel momentarily enough to over pressurise the barrel?
