    I am trying to remember the brochure that comes out now and again - in fact I think two sources sell this stuff and other ''specials''.... at a price!

    One is something like ''Strikeforce'', ''Deltaforce'' - heck I cannot remember. Maybe someone else will remember.

    What is the best source of Dragon's Breath?

    A dragon's mouth....... Is there a trick here?

    This question is to me like a red flag to a bull. I cannot help myself.

    BTW, have you tried Goggle?

    Flamethrower is what they want you to believe - reality is closer to a sparkler . At least on the ones I fired - not impressive at all.

    Humm ? Maybe they could start a fire if used just right !

    Your best bet is to remove the shotgun barrel, run some propane tube through it and use it as a handle for a high-pressure propane blowtorch.

    That stuff is mostly for show. Save your money for some 00 buck practice ammo.

    those flamethrower shells can be found on www.gunbroker.com.. i see them all the time and they look fun but i wouldn't want to worry about hurting my barrel.

    One more vote for the "leave all the trick shotgun ammo stuff alone and spend your money on bird/buck/slugs" approach... seen it, haven't been impressed. Minor detail- like tracer it works both ways, too. Normal muzzle flash is apt to draw all the attention you can handle.

    Why would you buy buckshot when you want a show?

    if you want a show use the $30 you would have to spend on getting those shells to buy $30 worth of sparklers and use electrical tape to turn it into a drumstick of death

    FWIW, Those round do start fires everywhere. I made the mistake of firing one 45 degrees in the air at a friends farm and the falling burning paticles started about a dozen fires all over the place.

    Here is another vote for Dragon’s breath being just for show. I believe it has no hunting or self defense use. It is a good round for fireworks, if you live in a place where you can fire a gun on your own property, but can’t legally buy or set off real fireworks. (Alcohol/firearms don’t mix rule applies to display rounds also, of course.) (You are risking damage to your gun/barrel, though, especially if you don’t let it cool between shots.)

    Do you want your shotgun to belch a huge gout of flame? Load a stout charge of Blackpowder under the shot!

    I have seen a 12 gauge double blow a nine foot flame. Firing both barrels is simply spectacular. And best of all, you do not have to worry about any laws banning such ammo. (If you local area bans true Blackpowder, Triple Seven is a nice substitute.) Just make sure you thoroughly clean up afterwards. The residue tends to rust guns if left uncleaned.
