    Gunpowder residue explosion at indoor shooting range - GIF and video

    Gunpowder residue explosion at indoor shooting range in Brazil. Residue collecting between or beneath the floorboards? Was not cleaned correctly with explosion-proof vacuum (or should've been a concrete floor anyway?).

    2:26 video. First spark around 1:33. To watch frame-by-frame, pause the video, then use the comma and period keys to move forward or back one frame.

    not sure what happened there but then again I only been to an indoor range 1 time. I vowed never to walk inside of one ever again. There was some fool in there with a.50 cal black powder rifle on a pistol range and the management was ok with it.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Hard to tell what set it off (bad camera angle) but once it went...oh boy. Probably a lag with the guy closest last shot or a hot casing on the floor. I've only been to indoor ranges a couple of times myself and all had concrete floors and range officers that were very attentive...still saw a couple of ID10T's in the few times I went.

    What is strange is that it looks like a range for officers in some sort of police unit! You would think that being the case that maintenance and cleaning where good.
