Blanks?

Do ya'll think these shells have shot in them? If so, this is wild.

Soot on the building,
spray of sparks
gray-white smoke =

Homemade blanks, shotgun shells loaded with black powder
and in some cases ... poorly crimped.

That is without a doubt a wild tape.

I wonder how many have been killed in such weddings because it is for sure a blank will kill at just a few feet away.

I remember reading a account of Russians using blanks to kill thousands of folks they wanted gone by having them kneel and shot with blanks.

Had a buddy who got a call at MCRD PI to come kill rattle snakes on the golf course and he got a few guys and a case of blanks and we out and filled two 55 gallon drums with dead snakes.

Shotguns at Algerian weddings are a big deal, but pretty sure they are loaded with BP.

There are a bunch of videos out there including a longer version of this wedding. At one point they attempt to breach the door and fail at point-blank range.
