I wonder how many people who haven't listened to the "talking heads" over the years decided to hunt with grandpappy's damascus shotgun and wound up looking at an unfurled banana after a shot or two?

Worse, I wonder how many of them had that unfurling banana take a chunk out of their supporting hand or arm?

I've heard of such injuries over the years, but have never seen one, perhaps because my friends and acquaintances are intelligent enough to know that there's a lot of truth to the old reports.

Not to mention that the one gunshop where I grew up had a nice damascus double with one barrel partially blown out and unwound about half way up the tube.

Looked like a snake swallowing a tennis ball...
