    BS, sounds like the episode of FPS Russia where he almost kills himself with a car door from a tannerite explosion.




    If that was just some country boys they would probably be facing terrorism or federal charges. But they were ex-leos and ex-military so they are good.

    Hope he's alright!

    Well, I would like to hear his side of the story, but yeah. WTF are you doing blowing enough tannerite to send shrapnel back at you in these weather conditions. Are you just totally not paying attention?

    Thank you for your service, but jeez dude, rub a couple brain cell's together.....:mad:

    It's very nice of y'all to 'care' about this guy.I don't really care much about folks that do stupid stuff.get what they had coming,Darwin and all.
    He was doing a training exercise? Well I guess the student got some good,real life training din't they?
    I hope he recovers enough to support his family but not enough that he will try to do training classes ever again

    What did Forrest say?

    While I wasn't there, I do know he's doing fine. Was in and out of surgery pretty quickly, and was talking and joking with friends late sat night early Sunday.

    Maybe they were trying to make a movie ;) After all, everyone knows that a single bullet to a car in a movie makes it blow up. That must be what it was. They want to be stars :p

    Looking at a group photo on the news. These guys are massive! A lot of table training going on before the car attack!

    What the hell does blowing bubblegum up with tannerite have anything to do with firearms training? Sounds like a bunch of damned morons IMO.

    "Stupid is as stupid does." - Forrest Gump as played by Tom Hanks

    This is Darwin Awards level stuff. Just goes to show that because your instructor understands firearms, he DOESN'T necessarily understand explosives.

    For those who came in late: YOU NEVER BLOW UP OTHER STUFF WITH ANY EXPLODING TARGET! YOU JUST SHOOT THE TARGET BY ITSELF. ANYTHING ELSE IS JUST IRRESPONSIBLE, UNPROFESSIONAL AND PLAIN STUPID.

    This is made abundantly clear in the instructional video that comes with Tannerite.

    I shoot with a group of people who have been shooting Tannerite regularly for almost 15 years, with never an injury.

    But nothing is foolproof, because someone is always inventing a better fool.

    That clown will probably try to bring suit against the target maker. These days the governing principle of Tort law is that "a fool is entitled for recompense for his folly."

    People like that just screw it up for us all. I hope he finds neither sympathy nor succor in the shooting community.
