Testing for Boomershoot 2013

Saturday Barron, Ry and I did some testing for Boomershoot 2013.

While there is no particular need to hide the details I’m busy with getting the Boomershoot entry software ready to accept entries and will let Barron and Ry explain what we were trying to accomplish.

But for those of you who want to try and guess here is some of the video we took (edited by Barron):

Here are the critical still images of the tests I was most interested in:

  1. Based on my total lack of hands-on experience with actual explosives, I suggest the possibility that “lift” might be accomplished with some sort of 2-D variation of the Munroe effect, using the ground as backing.

  2. I’m not exactly sure what you are suggesting but what we do is get the explosives between the fuel and the ground. The complication is then getting a easy target to detonate with the rifle and having the explosion propagate underneath the fuel without spilling the fuel with a misplaced shot. Plus we need to be short of parsimonious with the explosives because of the nearby homes and cars nearby.
