    I saw this a while ago. What's the story behind it? No doubt entertaining and worthy of said award. I've just always wondered what happened?

    Default I am not knowing

    My guess is that he made a ppe bmb. It went off in his face and that was that.... The pic was entitled "fireworks accident" Im glad that wasnt me cuz' that would REALLY suck. If he did use bird shot rather than buck shot , Maybe he should try again and try reading the side of the cartridge first....

    cant even suck his dinner through a straw...

    Default Hey TacMig, Do you remember....

    Do you remember that YouTube vid clip I sent you of the kid throwing the "thermobaric" device? I suspect that this would have been a likely cause of the injuries suffered by dufus in my last posts.


    ANYWAYS BACK ON TOPIC.

    Since this post now has some 11000 veiwings, There must be other stories out there or are we the only people in Cyberspace that are so dexterously challenged?

    Default Fireworks???

    One of the guys in the shop said this is an old, old photo of a fireworks tech. He said he doesn't remember how it happened but was an accident of some sort during a large 4Th display.?? I guess if one wanted to, they could spend some time researching??

    I did do the research on it and came up with this. He was shot in the face at close range with a high caliper hand gun. Here is the link if anyone is interested but be warned, there are several other pics, some DOA.
