You do know M80's and larger explosives like dynamite serve a practical purpose???? If you want a tree stump gone, they're perfect for that. You want a hole dug - they're perfect for that... Of course they have their entertainment value on the 4th of July.
Of course being safe when using these small devices is always the most important aspect involved....
Why spend 2 hours trying to remove a tree stump when you get get it done in 20 seconds? of course the idea is to fracture the stump not blow it into small chunks (that does not turn out too well for the surroundings).
The Law should be changed because it's blatantly illegal, and I'm not the only one who refuses BAC tests - many have and many are challenging the law.
A few years back a county next to mine would strap people down and literally steal their blood to test it if they refused to blow - that law was changed when it turned out many who refused the BAC test and refused to have their blood taken were IN FACT NOT intoxicated and merely refused for constitutional and privacy reasons.
Sorry, but I'm not an idiot for going along with tyranny - I'm smart for not letting cops trample on the Bill of Rights....
Sort of like requiring welfare recipients to undergo drug testing "to save tax payers money", which in Florida turned out to cost more money than it saved as fewer than 5% of recipients tested positive. For some reason the Republican members of the State House here in Florida turned down a bill that would have mandated drug testing for them. Maybe they were friends with Congressman Trey Radel

Well, whatever they were, as you say...it was worth it to you.
But you don't know your gear inside and out. If you don't practice the scenario you so worry about you are not prepared. (it is like the drunk searching for his keys where the light is good and not where he lost them) Many train when the weather is good, the routine, well it is a routine. Play 'army' and then go get drunk... not realistic, more like paintball with no feedback.
Now are you wearing that plate carrier, ahhhh with the plate, when you 3 gun? At first you claimed to do that and now it sounds like you are backing off of that.
Now while you and your buddies are playing army in good weather and until it ain't fun anymore- the SWAT/High risk teams run their drills with guys like you in mind. They will know the layout of your house, the dog, the hallway... just saying for every time a wag can point to where officers are taking by surprise a dozen other times the bad guy goes down fast and hard.
Keep believing you can gear-up from a sound sleep to fighting mode before the team is ontop of you- fact is you are clueless if you can even put the vest on in any reasonable time from a dead sleep. I wasn't just in the military, I was a grunt. We didn't train in nice weather, run a drill a few times and then hit the beer, we drilled in the heat, the rain, snow, high wind and breathless air days, dead of night. We drilled over and over for hours at a time, and in a wide variety of terrain, towns, hooches and from a dead sleep or while dead on our feet.
Believe this if nothing else I have posted- until you have tried to run your little drill while dog assed tired and from a dead sleep you are living in a fantasy world.
All that to say you may think you know your limitations and how it will go down, but quite frankly from all you posted I'm very sure you don't.
Now not only am I a progressive firearm owner, I am a combat vet with a few scars that told me very early in life I don't have a big S on my chest.
I maybe as rare as a black Tea Party supporter, how some ever, you are quite common in the never hit a lick, but quite vocal what you can/will do if the cops ever came after you category....

Nawww I just see ya as another 'never been' who thinks because he has played some on a one way range he can do something....
