This shotgun looks like Bugs Bunny tied a knot in it before firing (VIDEO)

Pro tip from Demolition Ranch: don’t fill a shotgun barrel most of the way with lead shot and then pull the trigger.

Taking what looks like an old Winchester 1300 straight from the pawn shop, they test out just what would happen in this most unlikely of scenarios that you should not repeat under any circumstances– jamming it full of bird shot then firing it from a safe distance with a string.

“I just want to know if it’s going to shoot a bunch of bird shot out of the barrel…or the gun is just going to explode,” says Matt. “There is only one way to know.”

That poor 12 gauge.
