Default Is this Thread Adapter safe???

(see above poll please)
I'm posting this in Full Autos sections b/c this question concerns shooting this suppressor on 'simulated' f/a (bump firing) using a slidefire stock.
B/c I'll be dumping A LOT of ammo down this pipe, I'm concerned the thread adapter I'm using might be problematic.
Here is the Thread Adapter

Here is a short video of when I shot a few rounds just to test the sound. I mean, it works! But I can't say I'm not wondering what's gonna happen to it's alignment after it really heats up.
Sound Test
Hopefully when it heats up really good it'll expand and tighten. But it's at the end of its thread and can't go around any more.

Are there any other options that'll really lock this in place? Maybe I've got nothing to worry about, but the slight wiggle makes me wonder.

My question is: why you would not clear your gun before you thread on a supressor? You even had a round in the chamber. Looks like a darwin award waiting.

Yes I still had a round in the chamber. I also use the safety lever and never put my finger on the trigger... so you do you, and I'll do me.
Please stay on topic.

Thank you sir. I really don't think the little amount of play that's there is gonna be an issue.
I included the Sound Test video so people could see that it does function of course, but I'm specifically wondering if this will change when shooting large volumes of ammo at once.

Actually wondering if spot welding it to eliminate the wiggle would help.

UPDATE!!!

OK I took it out to the range and I have no problems. Ran flawlessly... no I just need a welding glove to handle that hot can.
