21 Days of Boomershoot–Day 15(2011)

Joe says that he doesn’t get that close, but some time’s he does.  He just he selectively forgets about it.

This was the fireball from my first Boomershoot in 2008.  He winged the gas can and needed to detonate a little bit quicker.

Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.

He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.

    While I may have a selective (or even absent) memory there isn’t any dirt or a cloud of dust engulfing me.

    Yeah, yeah, I’m probably rationalizing.

      Missing hair, probably. You’re definitely closer in that picture than you normally are. I don’t remember how that fireball was designed but most fireballs don’t produce a lot of dirt since we push the gas up.

      I’m more than willing to deal with flying dirt, burning gasoline on the other hand, that continues to hurt well after the fact.

    … Aaaand the pucker-factor maxes out.
