    We burn the garbage at the range and occasionally the fire will cook off a round someone tossed in the trash. Two years ago as I walked away from the burn pile I heard a BANG and a primer shot out of the flames and embedded in my arm. Thought it was a bullet at first, but hole was to small. Dug it out.. got some pics of that somewhere.

    Years ago I pulled some rifle loads that were donated to me and sprayed some WD40 into the cases to deactivate the primers. This put the oil in contact with the top of the primer.
    Experimenting the next day they fired. Kept it up for several days and they all fired.
    Some says that'll work. I'm personally dubious.
    It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.

    Genius? I wouldn't go that far. LOL!

    I was just joking about the boating accident.
    I thought the concrete suggestion was pretty good.
