Decent Deal On 50 Caliber Ammo Cans

Gander Mountain currently has mil-spec, new, 50 caliber M2A1 ammo cans on sale at $14.99 apiece and if your order is over $50 you get free shipping. So, buying 4 of them would get you the free shipping. That is a pretty good deal, for new ammo cans, at least in my neck of the woods. See:

I Thought 20 Pounds Of Binary Explosives Was A Lot...

...and I imagine that if I set off all 20 lbs. at once, it would be one heck of a boomer and quite the sight at that. Still, it would never compare to 300 pounds of it being blasted off at once. Watch the embedded video and see for yourselves. Yes, the video is in essence an over 9 minute long advertisement but it was fun watching the buildup to the explosion nonetheless and certainly was enjoyable, for me, to see the detonation. It also gave me kind of a chuckle to see the cheek weld of the millennium. Watch it, you will see what I mean.



I figure it would have been a whole lot more awesome had they included a gallon or two of gasoline atop all the binary compound but then I imagine the cost would have been prohibitive to bring in the local fire company to make sure that the forest did not burn down had something like that gone off. Kids (and adults) don't try it at home with or without the gasoline. Seriously, if you don't know what you're doing that would be an extremely dangerous undertaking.

Many thanks to Funker Tactical for posting the video and even more thanks to USA Chemical Supply for supplying the big bang. Somehow though, I don't think all of the earthworms in the area were too happy about them doing it but sometimes worm puree is the special of the day.

All the best,
