    Not exactly sure what we have here; possibly a squib or maybe some other malfunction that led to a delayed discharge.

    I'm not familiar with that particular model rifle but it appears as if the firing pin had stuck. the bolt moves forward when he pulled the trigger but nothing else happened until after he laid it down possibly some dirt was dislodged allowing the spring to push the firing pin allowing the rifle to discharge. I might suspect a bent firing pin as well.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    I don't think the gun he was holding actually fired. Watch where it was aiming when he laid it down. It was quite a bit off to the left of that bottle yet the bottle exploded and the gun stayed on the table he laid it on. It would have flown into or past him. It appears someone with him was playing a very dangerous prank on him. Either that or he narrowly escaped an assassination attempt. Maybe he's an alcoholic, that was a bottle of vodka and wifey showed up packin' heat!

    The bottle on the table was shot from his left flank. I'm sure he later discovered he had glass in him.

    Well I learned at an early age if one has a miss fire to immediately open the bolt. Don't just lay the gun down and consider it safe.

    Well actually I was taught on the target range to continue to hold the rifle on target for a period of time and after a few minutes, open the bolt and remove the cartridge. Opening the bolt immediately could result in an explosion with shrapnel and powder burns.
    In law enforcement with a semiautomatic when experiencing a misfire the procedure is to tap the bottom of the magazine, rack the slide and attempt to fire again. It is known as "Tap, Rack, Boom."

    Whatever, you should not just lay the gun down and leave it for the next guy as the shooter was attempting to do!!
