At about 0:18 the shooter presses the trigger and the shotgun does not discharge.
At 0:19, the shooter places his shotgun with the muzzle upwards and looks down the barrel.
- Stay in your firing position
- Keep the gun’s muzzle pointed downrange
- Wait at least 30 to 60 seconds for the firearm to discharge
- If the gun does not discharge after the above time frame, then work the action to eject the misfired cartridge and dispose of it safely.
The idiot in the video is extremely lucky he is not dead or blind (from what I can tell).
Be careful out there and SLOW DOWN when shooting.
It is the quality of your firing practice that is more important than the quantity.
