Good sage experienced post there !
Personally I would be learly to light off anything near my face and head that hasen't been proofed ? Probably would remote light one if I had one for the first shot , but I would always have it in the back of my mind this India pile of gun is going to blow me up eventually . Think I will stick with guns made with pride and craftsmenship and proofed , Italy , America and the like .
