Ah, really not worth doing; but ...... !!!

I once participated in a one-gun salute, during a flag raising ceremony at a Boy Scout event. I had been teaching M/L's and they asked me if I would do it. Without giving it much thought, I agreed and then wondered what to load. ...

I did 50grns of Pyrodex and then jammed down a good wad of aluminum foil, nice and tight. On cue, I fired the round during a hand-salute and then everyone was watching the bits of foil floating down. Smoke was good, bark was good and It really turned out pretty neat. ....

Be Safe !!!
