Nobody at the firing range saw this coming. A stray spark from a muzzleloader ignites an open canister of black powder. The shooter is instantly engulfed in a huge fireball.
He appears no worse for wear at the end of the video, but this should be a cautionary tale for everyone who shoots muzzleloaders, “Keep your powder dry and covered.” You can never be too safe when handling combustibles.
So anytime you shoot be aware of your surroundings and make sure you are wearing all your protective equipment. I noticed he was not wearing safety glasses and the fireball could have definitely injured his eyes.
Stay vigilant and stay safe while enjoying shooting and the outdoors.
