A club member was sitting in the shade with us, participating in the general BS session when we all heard a "bang!". He flew out of the chair (breaking it in the process) and ended up laying on the ground. Check the pix. His glo igniter was in his pocket along with a 22 bullet. When the bullet got lodged in the igniter, ignite it did! With good luck, the bullet blew out the side of his pants, and not his leg.

The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

I'm just curious as to why he would carry around ammo in his pocket.

A .22 shell that is detonated in this fashion cannot attain any velocity. It will make a noise like a firecracker and the biggest danger is getting embedded powder particles under the skin.

No big deal.

Yeah, Okay!
So this guy walks around with a .22 shell in his pocket, then puts a uncapped glow ignitor in the same pocket...

Any chance he is a NASA Engineer (read this as Rocket scientist)?

And moral of the story is?

Heading needs changed to Darwin nominee

I'm surprised a glow igniter had enough voltage to ignite it I know 12v will do it mythbusters proved that but I thought it was 6v or 9v was the min needed? oh well Darwin non the less

You dont know what your talking about, and I have the scars to prove it. Its not the bullet that will hurt you, its the caseing that flew off hit me in the arm went to the bone! by the elbow and flew out. blood poured out for 15 minutes while the school nurse tried to stop the bleeding with a butterfly

wasnt my fault i was in the 5th grade and kids were throwing the shells up in the air till 1 went off. the school trying to hide the hole even and brush it under the carpet blamed me for a day and put me through the 3rd degree. i was just walking inbetween classes. then expelled 1 of the guys really involved the next day.

Outhouse,

Did you read the part where I said the bullet cannot attain any velocity? And, yes, I do know what I'm talking about. I had a similar incident when I was 3. Since then, I've become an NRA certified rifle, pistol, shotgun , and home defense instructor. Yes, parts of the casing can blow out and become dangerous, but it really is not a big deal. Your little thing with kids throwing rounds up in the air is a weird twist. Of course, anything that blows up is dangerous, but it's not the same as a gun going off.

It's similar to the assertion that ammunition in a fire is a deadly problem for firefighters. It mainly is just a bother because it makes noise and seems scary, but none of the bullets will go fast enough to kill a person.

No doubt lotsa luck involved here. But, the only mark on him was in his under shorts. Dead lock for this month's dummy of the month award though......

BTW, lotsa varmit shooting around here. It is not uncommon to find a stray 22 bullet in your pants pocket.

Story provided for the humor - and no #$*! factor. Not meant to be deep introspective social comment. Guy involved is not a dummy; it's just that, well...stuff happens......

[[the biggest danger is getting embedded powder particles under the skin]]

yes I did read exactly what you said.

That is your sentence I have a problem with and its wrong.

Look you and I are very gun smart, Im not only a very accurate marksman im dang good with a bow to. I load my own shells ect

im knocking you, you made a mistake, you dont know everything about guns. your trying to define that with a explosion you may just catch a little powder. I caught allot more, im dang lucky i wasnt blinded or worse. The velocity it hit my arm with felt like someone took a ball peen hammer and cracked me as hard as a adult could. My arm went instantly numb as blood flew everywhere. Only when they tested the hole and bone for lead and found none did we know it was the casing.

[[Your little thing]] I have a problemn with you for this statement as well. Ya well it was pretty tramatic for a 5th grader and you sound just like the principle trying to downplay it to keep it hidden. Your a d ick for that statement cause it was no little thing, I got shot at school. They were in my face screaming at me with spit flying out like I was the guilty party trying to put the blame on me so they didnt get there arses sued.

If this happened now a days it would have maid the local news and the school would have been in court for what they did. Id still like to find the VP to this day for how he handled the situation. If they did it to my kid and I found out the truth there would be hell to pay. the school was so worried about they called my mom and she made it to the school before a doctor or anyone else.

I call.
The compound in rimfire ammo is not activated by current, but by percussion.

You might be able to activate it with a current, but the thing would have gotten really hot before ignition.

Sounds like a job for Myth Busters.

Ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for Radio Control Helicoptering.

No big deal.
The brass casing will be the biggest danger, it fragments like a little grenade and penetrates the skin with ease. Just look at the picture if you need proof...

And it could KILL you if it hits you in the wrong place. That is a big deal.

he said the bullet got lodged, i see no reason for anyone telling a lie here and he has pics that descibe, and back what he has posted. no need for mythbusters, look at the casing.

[[ the bullet blew out the side of his pants, and not his leg.]] the fact that it blew out of his pants tells me this could have caused a little more then powder particles.

[[Did you read the part where I said the bullet cannot attain any velocity]] you wrote shell not bullet
