Dragon's Breath

I am the shooter, my brother is the cackling camera man. I have quite a few and they do age well. These rounds were shot last year and are over 8 years old.

RE:Vachss

You may have really done a great public service here. Now all those worried about what rounds to use in their shotguns for HD can now rest easy. Forty or fifthy rounds of those should slow down most intruders. Unless they are asbestos-clad.

Looks like fun! Can you film another shooting at a target? A coworker of mine once related a story about shooting one at a scarecrow in his farm, which promptly burst into flames and had to be extinguished. I'm curious if they really do pass along heat to the target.

According to Answer.com it's a zirconium pyrotechnic. Might have to pick one of those up next time.
