Learned a lesson about poi shift and why

Yesterday I hit the range with my FNX45T and my Rev45 can and did some shooting. I generally shoot at 50 ft and my 1st 10 shots were nice, shot about a 6" group at 50ft. and shot a little high and right (my typical shooter deficiency). had an unusual flier about 10" low and right. The next 10 shots were horrible, all shots sprayed around a 8" group, 10" off poi at 5 oclock ??? Low and behold my can came loose. I also observed i struck the end cap with a bullet. I was SO mad at myself. People warned about semi auto cans coming loose. The end cam strike was not bad, and all the internal cones are fine, but a $80 mistake to the tune of a new end cap. Problem is my Rev45 can has a funky piston that uses a strange proprietary wrench. You really can't use a traditional wrench to tighten the can to the barrel. I'll just have to use my glove and check for tightness after each mag.

"can" = "suppressor"

Have you seen the Black Rifle Coffee "Christmas Carole" video.
"Ralphie in the pink rabbit suit" sends a can downrange during a long burst. Big OOps.
