While practicing for a 12 gram only tournament, on a very cold day in New Hampshire, we had a 55 gallon drum with a roaring fire in it. Between games we'd huddle around the barrel to warm up. We were struggling with the 12 grams all day due to the cold, keeping them in our gloves, next to our body etc.

After a game, a teammate, Tim Hooper had about 10-12 grams in a baggie, and the held them out above the barrel fire to warm them up. I was looking at him, and he looked at me and then he gave me a "deer in the headlights" look, knowing this was was a pretty stupid idea. The baggie melted, and the 12 grams fell into the fire. We all ran for cover. The 12 grams exploded violently, one by one, launching flaming pieces of wood 20 feet into the air, shrapnel from ruptured 12 grams flying in all directions, and literally extinguishing the fire.

We all laughed pretty hard afterward, knowing just how close we came to becoming injured or killed.

Meanwhile, the casing goes flying out unpredictably. I got one stuck in my face one time, while I was doing stupid things. I figured that since it was only primer in the casing and no gunpowder, nothing bad would happen. boy was I wrong.

My firends and I used to play night games at our private field, which is code for drinking beer and all-around horsing around.

One night around 2:00 AM we started tossing 12 grams in the camp fire. BOOSH! big spray of vapor and sparks. So we did it again and again. Eventually a huge piece of charcoal launched up out of the fire and bounced across the hood and roof of a friends '72 Monte Carlo. Good times.

My dad was in the Air Force in the '50's and his friends thought it was cute to toss some live .45 rounds into the wood stove in their building.

That sounds like a waste of a perfectly good can of beer.
