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 !!!
'Fundamental truths' are easy to recognize because they are verified daily through simple observation and thus, require no testing.
