Still have most of it! but lost the messing with ammo part twice, 1st time when a friend and I decided to burn a box of 12 gauge shells at the ripe old age of 10. Lucky for us a " smarter" 15 year old told us we should stand back just in case. Yes, got hit with a couple pellets but just enough to scare ya, kind of.
2nd time was 19 downrange for tank gunnery with the mortar platoon, they used charge squares on bottom of round to determine distance to target. Nice little wafers that go on bottom of round, more squares farther they go. After exercise was done there were a couple boxes of squares left over. One of the mortar guys say " hey Doc, check this out" and lights the pile on fire. Super cool and super hot! The PSG says that nothin watch this! He lights just one square the hits it with a ball peen hammer! The hammer snaps off the handle and hits the PVT next to me square in the mouth. Loud as Heck and I got to show my medic skills plus ability to call in Med evac!
