I used to get aviation fuel for higher octane but jet fuel (as far as I know is more of a diesel mixture) but has very unpredictable fumes, I sure wouldn't keep it even too near my house. I can recall back in the 80s a boss I had was a big time gun collector & had a house fire (kitchen), he made the mistake of telling the VFD it was good they got there before it got to his hobby room & then actually showed off by opening the door. Turns out they "had" to call in the police that called in the county, they took most everything away (he got most back) but it was for safety reasons, if that house would go a couple of neighbors & everyone trying to fight the fire would go as well. Then he complained because his Homeowners dropped him. :o


I don't see anything about black powder. Came up with that in the second post.

Wait, why am I explaining any of this.
Doesn't matter he 's still be a great Beckel.

It seems like more than a few naval ships went down due to explosions, they always keep the powder well away from the other buildings at Zambellie's fireworks plant & still manage to have explosions along with fireworks displays going out of control. In the service the powder was always kept separate, if a chopper went down & we had time we always threw the ammo out before or along with getting the crew out, in the steelmill they quit destroying the guns in the iron ladles due to ammo cooking off & I doubt that it was chambered but rather in the tubes or stock storage but knowing the police it may have been chambered. In any event call your police, fire, or Ins. Co. & tell them you have a bunch of ammo & see what response you get from them. As I said in the very beginning only tell what you want someone to know or see. Guess that's what I get for being left leaning where few Dems are willing to admit it. :(
Hophead, don't know who this Beckel guy is but if that's what gets your boat to float go with it. :roll:

5:00 PM is when my local news is on & this may be hard to believe but I don't watch Fox or most other much for that part, Fox the least.

Where I live they would laugh at me and say I need to work much harder to get stocked up better. I am falling behind.

If you can't make an exception for one day for an hour then you'll just never know who you emulate will you.


BTY, I have a whole lot of respect for that guy. I don't agree with him but I do respect him.

Now I've heard it all. They wouldn't throw guns in a steel mill that will contain molten steel because of a few rounds of ammo? And how about someone having the intelligence to unload them? This approaches the myths of magic curving bullets and bones chasing rounds.
Smokeless powder burns at a known rate in the atmosphere. It only creates a bang under pressure and the bang is different based on the burn rate of the powder. Black powder also has burn rates, and the only reason they blew up ship is that the powder magazines were well armored and encased in steel, so when hit the powder expanded faster then the ship could flex. Black powder "flashes" in the atmosphere. It is far more dangerous to handle then smokeless. Old true black powder became unstable as it was nitro based and could go off almost any old way. Todays Pyrodex and other brands are much safer and stable.

They throw them in a freshly relined ladle that has a huge gas jet getting it up to temp. if they poured the 2800* iron into a cold ladle it would destroy the lining & they would bring in a loaded stake bed truck so it took awhile. Here's an even better one, they quit destroying the drugs & pot the same way because they thought the craneman would get high & all the maint. personnel would go to the 6th floor (where you couldn't see your hand in front of your face) for the same reason. The people that make these decisions are the ones that get paid the really big bucks. :cry:

At the risk of further sidetracking this thread, black powder is stable and doesn't degrade. However if it gets wet then it is ruined the chemical that provides the oxygen during combustion is leached out of it. Black powder will only ignite from a spark or flame, also modern black powder is coated with graphite to let it dissipate static electricity.
