    Totally avoidable, don't leave your propellant out like that. I love shooting smoke-poles and I have burned up lots of pounds of powder and never had anything like that happen.

    They titled it wrong, the muzzleloader didn't blow up.

    I have to admit I laughed but that had to hurt.

    the old saying "you need to be smarter than the equipment you operate" applies here. i am not even a big m.l. enthusiast, but i know way better than that. it would be like pouring gasoline on a fire, with a trail coming back ten feet so you could stay safe when you light it, and then setting the can right next to where you are going to light the trail. the word "DUH" comes to mind.

    What not to do? Don't let idiots or children play with them or the accessories.

    Naval gun carriages are not meant to be used in the field.

    Use metal shafts for the axle and like the navy did, tie down the gun to control the recoil. Metal shafts will give the gun more mass and will help dampen the recoil.
