Flare gun test - Part 2

I brought my other 2 flare guns home from the boat yesterday. Tested the first one and it worked fine. The second gun mis-fired, the flare igniting but the shell still in the gun. The gun caught on fire and I threw it in the snow and let it burn. I'm sure the problem was very old out of date flares I was using for testing.

Yikes. One good reason not to carry a concealed flare gun under your shirt, between your belt and your belly button
