Starting a campfire with blackpowder leads to minor injuries at local school.

    Yeah, that’s why you NEVER dispense black powder directly from the can, flask, horn, or canister. You pour into a small metering container (“powder measure”) and then dispense it from there. If the measure gets ignited you have 15 to 120 grains go off, and not 7,000.

    Anyway; who <hasn’t experienced flash burns from black powder? I always figured it was part of growing up.

    That’s why I always start my fires with safe, natural dynamite.

    Heh! My brother and I got our hands our father’s blasting powder (the kind that looks like thick black spaghetti) one time, but we were only eight/nine or so … and we survived the experiment.

    My father was so relieved, he forgot to beat us, too.

    It is inadvisable to shoot steel with AP or steel-core ammo at close ranges. I recall shooting some steel with my mosin loaded with some steel-core surplus at about 20 yards. I could actually see the jacket fly back at me, about four feet to my right at about chest height.

    But yeah, that first one looks fake or embellished.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
