Exploding Targets Banned in Colorado and Four Other States

According to the AP, Federal authorities are cracking down on the use of exploding targets in five states!

Shooting is one of my favorite pastimes. My buddies and I spend weeks collecting the perfect targets like milk jugs filled with water & food coloring… the best kind are the ones that explode but those are now banned in our state!

To be honest I figured it was only a matter of time, I mean these things are kinda dangerous in the wrong hands, right?

Think about it, it’s WAY more dangerous than a pressure cooker, in that it requires no assembly, plus you could buy a TON of them pack em together and make a HUGE explosion!

Scary right?! I thought so too, and figured this is why they had been banned, BUT it’s NOT.

Yesterday’s order covers forest and grasslands in Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota because authorities say the exploding targets can spark fires.

Violators could face a fine of up to $5,000 and be sent prison for up to six months.

Word from the U.S. Attorney’s Office is that the ban will be enforced in the Rocky Mountain Forest Service area soon.
