    Went for a conjugal recently with my Obsidan-45; not my first can, but first with a removable extension. Wanted to test to see the difference in sound level with the extension off, so I placed the weapon on safe, unloaded it, took the extension off, reloaded the weapon and fired…baffle stack penetrated the target and landed in the box behind it. No damage to baffles other than one had a very small scuff on the outer edge, but boy did I feel like a moron. Lesson learned: The end cap is very important.

    Please roast me in the comments, I deserve it.

    That’s an expensive shotgun shell.

    I’m sorry but I laughed really hard at the image of your baffle stack rocketing down range

    Actually I have a form 1 can that can be disassembled for cleaning, except it’s a tight fit and I’m not the best at routine cleaning, so I’ve purposely done this before to disassemble when stuck. Put it on a .22 load a cb short. Shoot into the ground. Insta-disassembled stuck baffle can.

    Ok, but was it quieter than a normal gunshot though?

    ATF probably going to come after you for manufacturing a destructive device.

    Hey man I did the same thing with my first 22lr can, it was so embarrassing but it happens. I got it sent to sico and they fixed it right up for free and sent it back. You live and learn.

    That tops the time a dude shooting his muzzleloader launched his rod down range.

    Sometimes you wind up learning things the hard way. Reminds me of when I mounted a Burris Fastfire III and didn’t quite tighten the battery cap. Got off one shot, then spent half an hour looking for the cap in the grass.

    Dude!

    If you want to launch cans, buy a can cannon. I mean, unless you got money to just throw away on baffle replacement….

    Actually I am kinda impressed that the baffles were not damaged.

    Big oof… good news is it should be able to get fixed before your stamp gets approved right?

    Guess that’s one way to silence someone
