In a video posted by YouTube user John Guzman, a rifleman takes a shot at an explosive mark, but soon finds himself scrambling to clear the path of a vengeful rock hurtling for his head. Be warned that there’s some slightly NSFW language, as the video contains about three-fourths of a swear word before cutting off (not that we blame him).

      • Best Tannerite “wind weights” (placed on top of the Tannerite jar, so it doesn’t blow away)? Pumpkins!

  1. Here’s a little gem of wisdom I learned while dealing with lots of different explosive devices:

    If you can see it, it can kill you.

    Class dismissed.

  2. I wonder where this is in El Paso. I only knew of two ranges to shoot at. Beside the side of the mountain.

  3. Well, my avatar photo is blowing up tannerite with a 6.8 SPC AR. In a gravel pit. I still have all my fingers and toes. Mostly.

  4. Given the things we’ve done with tannerite — like the time I rock-climbed up a cracked quarry face to cram a couple of quarts’ worth into a crack, and we split the rock face — I feel left out. The only time we ever had to dodge anything is when the explosion failed to destroy the trailer truck tire balanced atop the tannerite, but did send it flying almost perfectly straight up — with the “almost” making us quickly realize we’d better relocate.

    But we have “chopped down” trees using tannerite……
