    I am sure almost everyone has seen ads for some of the unusual 12ga loads. For the last 6 or so years because I am so frugal (read poor) when I wanted to shoot exploding rounds out of my shotgun I would wrap about 10 layers of electrical tape around one of the 15mm wildlife scare cartridges that sell for about $30 for 50 than just push it into a empty primed shotgun shell. It goes a little bit farther than out of the little pistol launchers that you can buy for them. A word of warning they can start fires.that sure beats buying them at 3 for $10 or so.


    Just had too....

    I can think of all kinds of fun things to do with that. So ya ever shoot them at the neighbors or relatives?
    One after one, by the star-dogged moon, Too quick for groan or sigh, Each turned his face with a ghastly pang, And cursed me with his eye. Four times fifty living men, (And I heard nor sigh nor groan) With heavy thump, a lifeless lump, They dropped down one by one.

    I also have 2 37mm flare launchers.


    the older one is a Federal Laboratories model 101 Gas gun, that's what the police use for teargas and etc.
    The other one is a 2 piece slamfire pistol.I have exploding rounds, flares, and smoke shells for them. Also for the last five years I have been loading 1.5 inch mortar shells (fireworks type) into the empty cases, I suspect that is why there are all those different types of shells available now because I gave a very detailed discription the one of the places that sell the 37mm stuff. I also have a couple of 37mm to 26.5mm to 12ga adapters. those I use the most because launchimg chunks of wood are so much cheaper.My only problem is how to make a good and safe delay so that I can get the shells to blow flour out at max height which is about 600 feet. So if any one can help me with that I would sure appreciate it.

    First let me welcome you to the board. There is a company that sells exotic shotgun shell's I'll go locate their site and get back with you. Some are rather pricy, but everything from tear gas (CS,OC) to flatchette rounds.

    Blackgun, I am familier with those companies. they are way too ezpensive for me that's why I make my own.And that's why I put out how to avoid spending more money than necessary.Iam working on how to make some of the others cheap.

    They advertise in Shotgun news.

    I think Jeeper could be a lot of fun to have at a party. We better keep them fireworks of his away from the Pump House. TLynn burned it down once don't want it to happen again.

    I will be at the Pump House tonight watchin yer 6 and trying to pick up yer date. About the time ya think she's single in will walk a big brute wearing a smoking jack-it. All the new guys are buying double shots tonight so I will be in a drunken stupor.

    Good news for the Pump House. The new video camera system is installed. We can now watch what is going on in the rooms errrr I mean watch the front door and bar.

    Don't get me started on fireworks. I've got about a cubic yard of fireworks $800 worth at least. Back when I was able to work for a living, I was an over-the-road truck driver, I almost always came home with some.
    I can if asked put of an interesting display.
