J.W. Ramp was shooting some surplus 37mm flares out of his M16 style smoke launcher. Be careful of what you shoot them at. The flare hit the berm but had enough energy to bounce up and over the berm and into the field behind it. Fortunately it was raining but they checked on it just in case.

Be aware, smoke flares tend to ricochet off of backstops and into the field behind them 😉 Definitely went and checked on this one to make sure it was fully extinguished in the rain. Pretty hilarious how non-aerodynamic these 26.5mm surplus flares are, as it's an oversized un-rifled tube they're launching down. #37mm #surplusflares #grenadelauncher #m16a1 #clone #80percent #backyardrange
