    I’m absolutely positive NASA is tracking empty paint cans we put into orbit from my backyard launch pad with the good M-80’s they sold back in the day…..Hard to believe they sold those 1/4 sticks to any 10 year old boy with cash in his hand……..

    We used to play with ADAM PEARLS, about the size of a pea that blew up when you threw them at something, of course we always shot them from a sling shot.

After all was said and done, the Marines on the ARG (five US Navy amphibs plus Marines) dumped the confiscated AK's and SKS', plus ammo into the deep, blue waters of the Atlantic. Word was there were enough rifles so that each Sailor and Marine could have had 2-3 rifles each. That comes out to 20-30,000 rifles sitting on the bottom of the Atlantic somewhere between that little island and the Straits of Gibralter. Along with well over a million rounds of ammo.

    That makes a whole lot of sense don't it. What a waste.

    Does in military sense. Imagine the military cost to transport to USA, inventory and store forever. Never to be issued or sold. I remember them dumping hundreds of good jeeps overboard when returning from Europe after VE day. Noe THAT'S a waste! I about wore out the family J4 (I think) up the trails to fish in Rattlesnake Creek (appropriately named!).

    KIND OF REMINDS ME OF AN OLD VASECTOMY JOKE
    Redneck Vasectomy

    After having their 11th child, an Alabama
    couple decided that was enough, as they could not afford a larger bed. So the husband went to his veterinarian and told him that he and his cousin didn't want to have any more children.
    The doctor told him that there was a procedure called a vasectomy that could fix the problem but that it was expensive. A less costly alternative, said the doctor, was to go home, get a cherry bomb (fireworks are legal in Alabama), light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to his ear and count to 10.
    The Alabamian said to the doctor, "I may not be the smartest man in the world, but I don't see how putting a cherry bomb in a beer can next to my ear is going to help me".
    "Trust me," said the doctor.
    So the man went home, lit a cherry bomb and put it in a beer can. He held the can up to his ear and began to count:
    "1"
    "2"
    "3"
    "4"
    "5"
    At which point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs, an resumed counting on his other hand.
    This procedure also works in Kentucky, Mississippi, and West Virginia.

    Makes a lot more sense to destroy weapons like that rather than leaving Billions of dollars worth of our best high tech weapons on the ground for our enemy to use or sell to the highest bidder to reverse engineer like Foggy Joe did in Afghanistan…….

    I remember those I think, went by a different name around here but I can’t remember what it was. Packed in sawdust if I remember right.
    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.
