    Wow. I remember seeing a video very similar to this where the appliance being used exploded and sent the largest part of its assembly hurling directly toward the shooter. A strange twist of fate, and a little bit of last payback.

    Natural selection in operation, though chance intervened this time.
    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.

    Dynamite would do the same thing a whole lot cheaper than that stuff.

    Interesting, we stopped the production and use of dynamite in South Africa in 1985 in favour of ammonium nitrate emulsion-based explosives that are safer to manufacture and handle.

    Tannerite is a whole lot easier to get your hands on though.

    That would have put a few off their aim! Brought back memories of shooting a shed full of weeping Dynamite above an abandoned quarry on a a farm a friend was living on. Nearest town was some 60 miles away by road and there was much chatter about the loud boom for weeks.

    But you couldn't hear any of it since your ears were still ringing.
