Think about how the gun is constructed. The barrel threads into the receiver, and the locknut threads onto the barrel. As the barrel and locknut screw in the same direction, the headspace can not change (i.e. the barrel unscrews a bit) unless the locknut moves. The locknut, as Olbiker said, is on pretty tight. There's no way one is going to come loose through shooting.
