    I would be sure that I was in a place with little chance of anything catching on fire. It would probably just spew bits of the flare all over the place and start hundreds of little fires everywhere. Got ahead and post the video. Sounds interesting, and if your buddy is holding it send it to funniest home videos, you may win $100,000.

    Ol' dopey me...I thought you were gonna shoot the flair OUT OF THE SHOTGUN. And I thought...WHAT??!!!

    Obviously, I need some rest...

    I doubt anything would happen. It needs a spark to set it off, and I don't think that lead pellets would cause it. Perhaps steel shot. You could get lucky and knock off the ignition cap causing ignition, but I don't think that the simple act of colliding lead shot with a road flare would do anything.

    Well if the flare is lit then I am hoping the particles that are already ignited will spread to the rest of the flare.

    And yes we have a LOT of free time to talk about stupid stuff like this.

    AND an abundance of flares

    Thanks everyone. I guess I'll have to go try it out. I'll let you know how it turns out

    careful now... your story just may end up on mythbusters testing the validity of your claims:)
    You can have my freedom as soon as I'm done with it!!!

    I don't know, but I keep having visuals of the guy shooting a 9mm at another guy in a vest...

    Sidewinder,

    Pay no attention to these other folks. They obviously don't have the deep convictions that some of us harbor regarding the value of much needed science. I am very curious as what exactly will happen. It is my deepest and sincerest hope that you will give it a try and report back here the results of your experiment. If I may, could I suggest a few more for you to try?

    Propane tank
    Acetyline tank
    Varying numbers of stacked plate glass
    cigarette lighters

    Once you have completed these experiments, please report back here... if you still have fingers anyway.

    Good luck and keep that mind keen and questioning!

    They did a segment on History Channel the other day where they had an old west shooter with a pistol try to light a match. He blew the head off the match (not a bad shot from about 25 feet it appeared) but it did not light. They blamed it on modern matches not using the same lighting techniques as matches of old.

    I figure if that stuff is not stupid questions, neither is the flare.

    I say ... bring it on!

    Can't wait to see it ... video it at night if possible.
