Oops, boy that barrel got hot Login/Join

A couple of weeks ago, I took oldest daughter to the range.
I gave her 500rds and an AR15 and said go for it.

Today, I decided to clean the AR15 and once I pulled the sack up wool sock off, there was about a 2 inch long blob of melted sock on the side of the barrel just forward of the front sight.

That melted wool was hard as a rock like melted nylon.

The only way I could get it off was to burn it off by placing the affected area above the burner flame on my gas range.

Yeah, I guess that barrel got hot, huh.

Ever so slightly warm. I'll bet she had a great time blasting!

Apparently she stopped at 400rds of the 500.
So I am told.

A bruised shoulder you know.

I should have let her try 400rds of 7.62X51 through Big Green the AR10.
Just kidding.

I took my two youngest grandsons to the range for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I took a 10/22 with us. The older one (8) did just fine. The younger one (6) watched his brother, then took his turn. He empty that 10/22 in about 2 seconds! Amazingly, all on target! It took a lot of effort not to smile too big over that.

I used my range bag as a rest for my AR10, and after a 25 round mag, i realized the strap was touching the suppressor. Nylon melted itself on good and hard. I put it over my stove and heated it up at home and it wiped right off. The bags strap is dead now though.

Leaned mine against a plastic picnic table after a 30 round course in a match. Well, the picnic table now has a nice deep barrel-rest groove in it.

They get amazingly hot.

I was shooting a suppressed AR in the rain.

It didn't take long before rain drops were sizzling off the silencer.

I have a burn scar on my right hand from grabbing a hot barrel on a M16A2. Hurt like a son of a bitch too.

While returning to CSC from a -20 degree night on the SAC ramp, I grabbed the barrel of my M16 with a bare hand.
Took 20 minutes for the heat in my hand to warm the barrel enough for me to let go.

Friend- "Bullshit. They dont get tha------ OOWWWWWW!!" followed by jumping around and screaming like a girl.

Me- "Told you not to touch the barrel.

The first time I shot with a suppressor, my friend pulled out a welding glove as he was unpacking his gear. I asked him "what's that for?". He just said "you'll see". I later learned that he had learned the hard way that suppressors get really hot.

That happened to a squad mate in basic training 49 years ago, only difference is it was an M14.

I use a blue tarp to catch brass so I don't have to pick it out of the grass. One of my tarps has a long hole in it where an AR barrel melted right through. It also has a bunch of tiny holes where hot brass has welded themselves to the tarp when they land.

I have fired a bolt action fast enough to cause a second degree burn when flesh contacted the barrel!

Years ago, a buddy was at Knob Creek and saw an Aug that had been tortured fairly heavily get leaned against a plastic picnic table; he said it started cutting a channel the width of the barrel through it like a hot knife through butter before someone grabbed it.
