3 LBs Tannerite + Lawn Mower + Bullet = One less leg

http://www.usatoday.com/videos/news/...3/24/82236326/

A Georgia man's leg was blown off after he shot a lawn mower full of Tannerite, an explosive firearm target. It's intended to be used in small quantities and shot at far distances. VPC
Mildly graphic video at link.



I knew this stuff existed, but only vaguely. It appears to be legal in most states, Maryland excepted for certain. It cannot be legally transported once the two components are mixed, for the most part. The 3 LBs the moron used would have probably have only cost the guy about $30.

I don't understand the glee associated with blowing stuff up at the range. Hit the target with speed and consistency, don't create a nuisance and a mess. I don't get the bump-fire slidefire thing either. Brrraaapppp!! There goes thirty rounds and you didn't hit anything, hooray?

This guy was a fucktard. I'm still trying to comprehend how a person could reasonably think an exploding vehicle, now becoming a shrapnel force from hell...was not going to be dangerous.

Looks to me that it was about ten bullets.

Maybe if more dimwits blow off their legs, we'll see more of Heat.

Let's go distribute some free explodey stuff.

^^ this right here is the problem with binary explosives like tannerite.

A lot of people that shoot aren't any good at it, so hitting a binary charge the size of a softball at 100 yards or beyond is too tough for them. The poor and flawed logic of the moment is to move closer so you can hit it.

Yeah, that's the real issue here. People seem to be concentrating on guns and tannerite, but the real point of stupidity was attempting to blow up a gasoline-filled vehicle at such close range, regardless of method.

I wouldn't mind gun nuts so much if they actually knew how to use them.

Most of us have a modicum of respectability and restraint and never make it on the news.

Yes

According to the Washington Post, there could be as high as 360 million guns on the loose in the US. I feel like there are more as people do make their own guns (not as hard as it sounds) perfectly legally and there is no way to count these.

So if you consider how many guns are 'on the loose' in the country, the news related to all of them is quite small, but blown out of proportion as guns make good news stories that people want to tune into.

and as pointed out, stupidity is at play here, this is more about explosives than guns...

Some western PA folks told me to check out "exploding pigs" on Youtube. They LOVED these videos. A bunch of rednecks put out food for wild pigs with carefully placed Tannerite by the food. Wait for pigs. Blow up pigs. A blast! Literally.

I don't think we have wild pigs in PA. That's an Arkansas thing or something. Our rednecks just enjoy watching the videos.
