    Can't say I haven't done some dumb stuff when I was a kid. Thankfully I made it without serious injury. Good reminder to keep the stuff locked up though. A boy's curiosity knows no bounds.

    LOL!! Can't a guy experiment without it becoming a federal case? Back in the day it was a hammer smacking them on the sidewalk. Ouch! LOL!!

    I can't count the number of things I blew up. I do remember having to explain to my mother why I had no eyebrows (a little issue with hydrogen). We shot a kid in the leg with a .22 case when we stole some ammo off of the shooting range (the instructors weren't good at keeping count) and removed the bullets in the building bricks at YMCA camp when I was about 9 or 10. We lit a trail of powder to the case and this kid walked across the room at the same time. I don't think it broke skin, but it did scare the hell out of him.

    Chemistry and 12 year olds also dont mix. After the mess dries, DO NOT put a match to it. Especially on a brand new oak dinner table.

    If he were within a 10-mile radius of a school, Bloomberg will count it as another school shooting.

    Haha. Used to do the same thing. My friends hit my little brother with one the same way and man oh man did my dad get mad. He hadn't heard all the little bangs we were making but he sure heard my brother yelling.

    Happy to see I wasn't the only one. But instead of the sidewalk, we used a bench vise in the garage. Put the round in it, and whacked the primer with a hammer and tap.
