We need bullet registration so we can put whoever owned those horrible bullets on trial for unsafe bullet storage. Oh my, what about the children?legacy38 said:You can bet antis will put it into a statistic category that will appear negative.
A bunch us were role playing as aggressors out in Combat Town at Lejeune, back in 2000. Went up in the rafters and found about 300 rounds of 7.62 blank ammo in belts. Spent the day cooking them off with a butane lighter to keep the grunts busy. It's no fun playing aggressor without weapons, but a bunch of bored marines with gunpowder and a little initiative can make for a fun day. Like they say "Nothing more dangerous, or more creative than a bored Marine."CoolHand said:There were three guys that were trying to extract the bullets (with sledgehammers) from some left over .50 cal API rounds at Camp Del Mar way back when I was there in 92. It ended badly for them as well. They got burned and caught fragments. After they got out of the hospital the CO burned them again, i.e. "congratulations lance corporal you're now a private, don't pass go for 6 weeks and don't collect any pay for a while. API is armor piercing incendiary by the way, they explode on impact sending really hot sparkles of zirconium or some such compound.
