When shooting at explosives for ‘fun’, it may be best not to stand so close to the explosion site. Check this out.
Tannerite has become a popular product in the world of firearms. It has been commonly used to create “exploding targets.” However, just like anything else, some people do not exercise caution and proper safety, and as a result, they end up causing damage to themselves. Take, for instance, this brilliant guy from Georgia.
David Pressley, 32, of Walton County Georgia decided he would blow up an old riding lawn mower using Tannerite and his AR-15. It didn’t turn out to well for Pressley.
His friend was videoing as David apparently missed hitting the Tannerite on several occasions and began to move in towards the lawnmower. In fact, he was about 43 feet away when he ignited the Tannerite with a round fired from his rifle.
The explosion blew the lawn mower apart, send a piece of metal threw the air hitting him, and instantly severing his leg near his knee.
As blood splatters and Pressley falls to the ground, you can hear him yelling, “I blew my leg off!”
