The worst cases are when people get a shell with a lift charge attached, but not actually put it in a launching tube so it flies/spins off instead in some random direction across the ground instead of up in the air and then explodes the main charge.
I've seen this happen - it usually ends up resulting in spot fires and more than your usual share of set off car alarms. It can also lead to very serious injury - the bigger shells have quite a bomb inside!

Nah, the worst case is when a shell detonates at the bottom of the mortar. We had one blow a whole finale rack apart and one guy got part of the rack through his leg.

P.S. I still can't believe the state of Oregon was stupid enough to give ME a pyrotechnician license!

Sorry to hear that, len. Man....it's bad when you have to go to a burger joint to get reliable wi-fi. Hope you are well soon.

Len, glad to see that they're not bothering you, at least not yet anyway; they may even be glad to have someone like you there at night! ;)

Glad to hear that you're feeling better, hang in there! :yh:
