    Actually I used the OP as an example of some of the questions I get as a firearms instructor. I taught a NRA Basic Pistol Class and we had time to do "fun stuff" on the range after the class was over. Some of the students wanted to hang around and see what happens when we shoot various things using various firearms. We shot up a few fruits, soda cans, expired canned goods, a plastic gas can and the road flares. BTW, my buddy shot up a flare with his M4 and we couldn't set it off. We got the students to clean up the mess and hauled it off to the dumpster.

    Needless to say, it was a lot of fun.

    Oh...excuse me while I pull my size 12 foot out of my mouth. I get that "foot-in-mouth" disease sometimes (While irritating, I suppose it's better than "foot up my a$$" syndrome!).

    I thought you were supposed to light the flare before shooting it. I am not suprised that you couldn't set it off.

    that's awesome... btw, shooting a pumpkin or watermelon with a high power rifle is also something to write home about:)

    You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once.

    Tracers would have been fun, but not legal here in PRHI.
