I gotta say in all the hunt tests I've been a part of there has never been a detailed safety intro for gunners in the field manning the popper guns, beyond "open the chamber here, load the blank like this, close it, cock it, pull the trigger." I would have no idea what could possibly cause a shotgun to "blow up."
Thankfully both of the clubs I'm involved in (Mid-Florida GRC and Jacksonville RC) have gone to Thunder guns which are much more user friendly, very limited risk, and much less expensive to maintain beyond the initial expense of the equipment itself.
