The national news stories online are full of the wildfires outside and there's a lot of talk lately about some of those fires being started by target shooters. Of course the stories are pretty short on specifics.
I'm a little perplexed about how a piece of lead hitting the dirt is going to start a fire. Of course if one shot a tracer or incendiary round at anything flammable that would be a different story. I suppose a fire could also be started if ones muzzle blast got close to some dry vegitation.
It seem to me that with reasonable precautions shooting shouldn't start fires. Any thoughts on this? Anyone here who doesn't shoot when it's dry? Thanks....Louis
