Loaded gun from a barrel

Too dangerous..?

Guns without external safeties and light triggers…?  Grab the gun the wrong way and it spins …?  No?

Unloaded I am cool with it.  Loaded I feel trapped as an RO.   My 2 cents

I understand your concern and there certainly is some additional risk with the more modified guns. My only advice is to stand fully behind the shooter until the first round heads downrange.

I recall a Freeport stage where the gun had to be placed under a bucket on a table. When the shooter rapidly removed the bucket the really expensive open gun was ejected off the table and landed on the gravel. I don't recall if it was a loaded start or not. At the time I remember being more concerned that the guys gun was damaged but now I think different as well.

Is it any different than loaded gun on table? Recently there was an instance where the shooter went for the gun on table, and it did a complete 360.
Other than the barrel's top being concave, or convex. Solution is to have a piece of carpet on top to keep gun from spinning.
