    See ignoring cautions damages your stuff but ignoring a WARNING is a whole other kettle of fish.
    May as well be the same, because stupid isn't going to read or heed either one.

      Here's what I said..... ("The first 2 don't really matter, so I guess the 3rd one could be taken in the same way.")

      Never said they were the same. But, Just that "warnings" like the first 2, which are merely self serving on the part of the manufacturers, can condition us to ignore warnings in general, including the "SERIOUS" ones.

      People ignore warnings, all the time and can become impatient with them and take them less seriously than they should.

        It goes on a different list:

        Don't use a wrench to cross the terminals on your car battery.

        Don't stick your finger in a light socket.

        Don't grab downed power lines.

        Don't sit on a NASCAR track for a better view.

        Use only black powder.


        Might as well sub 75 grains of Bullseye for 75 grains of 4350 in your 375.
        And, then there are the Exceptions.

        A friend of mine had an InLine that "He" said,,, was Safe to use Smokeless Powder in. I assume it would have to be the proper powder, and the proper charge.

        Having no interest in InLines, I didn't pursue the matter.

          GD Yankee that is the same accident I was referring to but I saw it on a different forum. As much damage as was done to that gun he was lucky that someone was not killed by it.

                  True enough, there are so many lawyer warnings that important warnings get lost in the gobbledygook. It's like how every other vehicle on the road in Alaska has a blinking amber light on it, you see so many flashing amber there it begins to mean nothing to you . . . then next thing you know the flashing amber your ignoring isn't a school bus/long truck/pickup with a plow going the other way but a wrecker blocking the road. Still most average folk are smart enough to overcome the issue without the warnings at all.

                  Depending on ones religious leanings such stupidity is ether God's plan or natural selection when it goes badly.

                    Reading this reminds me and I hope to think that this type of stupid has never reached the Alaska news. Well with it being winter here in the lower 48 it's not as rare as it should be but we are known to have people try to thaw out their cars fuel lines by warming up some gas on the kitchen stove. There is no catagory for that.

                      75grs of 20ga shotgun powder would tear up just about any normal firearm let alone a muzzle loader.

                          I'm still wanting to know if he hit what he was shooting at and how bad it got tore up. Am I the onlyest one that has a curiosity worked up over the ballistic end of what happened when he lit off all that red dot or whatever it were pushing that round ball? Heck a fire I bet it ain't even landed yet. How's come do you reckon it didn't blow to smitherines on the first shot. So if he lost three fingers does that mean from now on he has to pull the trigger with his pinky or was it the tother hand? As hard as I try to feel bad for the guy it ain't happening. It does make me wonder though. Will a musket cap ignite c4?
