My classmate used a C02 discharger to dislodge an obstruction from his barrel. He did it inside the house and the discharged objected destroyed a vase his MIL gave his wife. Muzzle control always. It promotes marital harmony.

Oh yes !!!

My classmate used a C02 discharger
They do the job and the last obstruction I cleared, was a broken Hickory ran-rod. I went through four CO2 cylinders and finally got it out on the fifth. My work was outside and the rod, jag and patch, shattered against my foundation wall. Never did find the Jag. .....

Be Safe !!!
'Fundamental truths' are easy to recognize because they are verified daily through simple observation and thus, require no testing.

I once killed one of my wife's yard ornaments dislodgeing a patched round ball from a 50cal. using the air compressor. Never could get those round balls to fire without a charge of powder underneath.
That did not go over well....but I did tell her she shouldn't put the ornament up next to the garage.
