US Forest Service to ban exploding targets

Because of wildfires.

    This is just one part of a very real trend – the one Forest in AZ that has a radically anti-gun chief forester has already started claiming ridiculous percentages of “gunfire caused” wildfires – if they find evidence of shooting anywhere near where the fire started, they simply declare shooting the cause, knowing that in a couple years when they’re citing statistics, no one will be able to prove it wasn’t. I predict this will lead to widespread shooting bans in National Forests in a few years.
    Not that it isn’t possible – I shoot at my cabin in the woods, and actually managed to start a fire this summer – by shooting GI AP in my Garand at a steel target. It never got beyond the “smolder” stage because I jumped on it right away, but it might have been a problem if I hadn’t been watching. 10K+ rounds of other stuff over the years has never been a problem, including some tracers (tho tracers are a known problem – I won’t shoot them unless the woods are wet)

    Because “Fuck you we can do what we want this is our country not yours”

    It was already unlawful to have incendiary devices, or use tracer ammunition, on FS lands.

    Also, there WERE fires started with these in Colorado in recent years, including some that got a little hairy.
