After all, it's not the first time something like that has allegedly happened:


Quote:
LATE on the evening of May 28, 1993, something shattered the calm of the Australian outback and radiated shock waves outward across hundreds of miles of scrub and desert. Around the same time, truck drivers crossing the region and gold prospectors camping nearby saw the dark sky illuminated by bright flashes, and they and other people heard the distant rumble of loud explosions.

The mysterious event might have been lost to history except for the interest of Government investigators in Australia and the United States who eventually came to wonder if the upheaval was the work of the Japanese doomsday cult accused of the poison-gas attack on Tokyo subways in 1995 that killed 12 people and hurt thousands.

The fear was that the terrorists had acquired nuclear arms or other weapons of mass destruction and had been testing them that night in the Australian wilds.

The hope was that the upheaval was an earthquake, a mining explosion or even a meteorite strike from space, any natural event.

The evidence was ominous. Investigators discovered that the cult, Aum Shinrikyo, had tried to buy Russian nuclear warheads and had set up an advanced laboratory on a 500,000-acre ranch in Australia near the puzzling upheaval. At the ranch, investigators found that the sect had been mining uranium, a main material for making atomic bombs.

The clues were judged worrisome enough to set in motion a wide scientific investigation that is still going on today.

''Many experts had dismissed the possibility of nukes'' in the hands of terrorists before the emergence of Aum Shinrikyo, Dr. Gregory van der Vink, head of the science investigation, said in an interview. ''But the group was into biological and chemical weapons and was attempting to acquire nuclear ones. I'm still amazed.''

Seismic Mystery in Australia - Quake, Meteor or Nuclear Blast? - NYTimes.com


Trouble is, its just crazy enough to be believable...I like Bill Byron's take>

"This is a country . . . so vast and empty that a band of amateur enthusiasts could conceivably set off the world's first nongovernmental atomic bomb on its mainland and almost four years would pass before anyone noticed."



But maybe a bit too obvious that close to Sydney lol

Club member's new Tikka Varmint



200m Teams balloon event - start from behind firing mound 3 rnds in hand, at signal run to unloaded gun, load mag, get em all fast as you can! Not so easy working the bolt when the adrenalin is way up, heh.

I got 2 Boom, lol.

Having a target react [for once] is immensely satisfying. Very fun.

pandamonium I hate Jersey but I can tell you one thing at least you boys up there know how to freekin plow a dam road. Down here they don't want hurt the roads so the leave 1" of snow on the roads then it gets ran over till it turns to a 1/2" sheet of ice. Then it takes weeks for them to get it plowed off.

That sounds like how they do it here in NC. I don't know why they're scared to get the blade down on the freakin road.
