    What happens when you get a bunch of YouTubers together in one place with binary explosives, full auto's, refrigerators and everything short of the kitchen sink?

    One heck of great weekend! IraqVeteran8888, Military Arms Channel, 13C Gun Reviews, Fate of Destinee, 22Plinkster, Sootch00 and too many more to list.

    You can read more about it and check out the video here-

    It was. I need to get some time to get together with the good people at TalkingLead, great groups of guys from the short time I talked to them.
  4. Good to know. I've been listing to them sense they started and they seem to be great group of guys.

  5. Im not a big fan of those explosives. IMO they are way to easy to be misused
  6. So, like anything else that someone might use for evil purposes, let's take them all away from those who never would.

    Where did he say any of that?

    I didn't watch all of it. I don't find this kind of video that interesting. What I did find interesting is that all of the guns were handled safely. The Four Rules were followed at all times, at least as far as I could tell.

    It was refreshing to see petite ladies shooting guns properly. They look well trained and like they actually enjoy shooting. This is in comparison to the typical youtube video where a pretty, 5'03/110# young women gets her skull bashed in by the muzzle of a SW X-Frame or her shoulder broken with a 3.5" turkey load, and then sweeps the entire firing line as she crumples to ground in pain while her bf laughs. And then there are the videos with 6'03/275# men doing the same thing...

  9. In most cases, yes. I wouldn't trust anyone with cyanide either. Up until a few years ago these explosives were a felony but now that someone has found a loophole they are everywhere. They need to be controlled better IMO.

    Now he said it:upeyes:

    Gasoline might be a bit of a problem too:faint:
  11. Looks like they had a great day at the range.
  12. :upeyes: Typical response.

    Gasoline has many industrial, commercial, and personal uses.

    High explosives don't.

    So why are you so defensive of your precious high explosives? They have pretty much always been illegal, but now that you can have fun a couple times a year blowing up microwaves you think that they should stock the shelves sky high for anyone to purchase with or without some sort of qualification.

    I guess you believe that cyanide should be stocked on the shelves next to it? I mean we cant assume that a few serial killers would predict how everyone else would use it, right?

    But why stop there? Do you think chemical weapons should be publicly available?

    Ban all firearms while you are at it.
  14. Please don't waste everyones time unless you have a legitimate reason to keep high explosives legal for everyone.

    Dude, WTF are you talking about? A couple of facts, sorry if they confuse you. These aren't "high explosives", if you knew anything at all about explosives, you would know that. Second, true HE can be made with stuff bought at walmart. Third, how do you figure these are "my high explosives"? Aside from some m80's I used to light off as a kid, I have zero interest in explosives, high or otherwise.

    BTW, what is "cyanide"? There are several cyanide compounds that have legitimate uses. They happen to be poisonous as well.

    I should have just stopped there. No industrial or commercial uses for HE? I'll have to remember that the next time they do a "shot" at the quarries I frequent.

    Ban all fertilizer and diesel fuel. Everyone should not have access. It is scary.
  18. These are high explosives. If you knew how explosives worked, you would understand that the ratio of chemicals would make it nearly impossible for deflagration. Plain and simple, these detonate, which makes them a high explosive regardless of how they are advertised.

    Pretty much anything can be illegally made from chemicals at WalMart. Does this mean that we should just skip the foreplay and stock the shelves of WalMart with meth and high explosives? Of course not, that's a terrible argument.

    Yes, there are various cyanide compounds but they are all dangerous and for the most part pretty well controlled. Cyanide as well as high explosives both have legitimate uses, but that doesn't mean that anyone with the cash should be able to buy it.
  19. Now you are twisting things around to try to make yourself look right. Please tell me where I said there are no uses for HE? Of course there are industrial uses for them, but there are a wide variety of substances and chemicals that have practical applications but that doesn't mean they should be legal and available to the public.

    You are comparing apples to oranges here. All you need to tell me is why HE should be available to anyone.

    You're right, tannerite is HE. The blackpowder used at the Boston Marathon was LE.

    Now you say there are legitimate uses for HE, before you said their weren't.

    As for controls, you are excersized about the lack of them, and then refernece the fact that there are controls on them. I'm pretty sure FPS Russia got gigged for violating the controls that you complain don't exist, then rely on as an argument for "banning" them, which they basically are.

    What do you suggest we, as a society, do about all of the gasoline and fertilizer that gets sold to people who have the money to buy it?
