Fired my first flare just now...ouch
I bought these two used skis from a guy. He had TONS of stuff he gave me. Two full milk crates of parts and accessories and whatnot. So i started going thru it, separating everything and throwing out the junk. I came across this crazy ghetto flare launch. i read the direction... looked like a real chinsy piece of shit. i decided to go out back and let it rip...
this flare threaded onto a firing stick. the flare was like a bullet and there was a firing pin and everything. sucker was the size of an 8mm.
i thread it on there, pull back the firing pin trigger, and released it... BRIGHT as all hell, shell shock on my fingers, and i have had a ringing in my right ear for the past 20 minutes that is starting to give me a headache. my mom was like the cops are gonna come now! isn't that illegal? i said yea actually, it is illegal... so she's been staring out the window all thsi time, LOL...
fun as shit, but i want this ringing noise to go away!

Old school flares are just meant for people to hear and see them from quite a distance, therefore they might look bright and sound loud when you fire them 3 feet away from your face.
But they save your life.
And besides that doesn't shock me as much as the meat spinning shit you posted.

Told you -- every thread now shibby posts on turns into a meatspinning issue!

You know whats sick? If you get a stainless pistol style flare gun they fire 12 gauge shells. Think about that. And yes i've see it done. And no i won't do it.

well the update is that the ringing in my ears is gone.. but my ring finger on the launch hand (left) has begun turning black and blue... i had tio work today all day long painting, and man was it hurting after awhile, that's when i looked at it and noticed my finger was purple on one side.
