    We used to launch them out in the parking lot. (Bag down)

    Pretty impressive, the height distance you get out of those things. :)

    Here's your word for the day in Russian-

    дурак- Idiot.


    Was at a plant that makes airbags. Looking at a semi full of them pulling away from the loading dock, I got the giggles. Mental image of the truck getting hit.......... and ALL of the airbags......... well, you get the idea.

    Shot one off the other day. It was a side curtain airbag. It was bag up, and we still got a good 10 foot in the air. Bag down you get them MUCH higher.

    Damn. And to think I used to fear about those kids walking across a crosswalk and kicking the front bumper of new airbag cars back in the 80's. That dude was lucky to live. :eek::eek:

    I'm a pretty poor judge of vertical distance, but probably 40 - 50 feet most of the time. Found this one on u-toob that looks close to what we would get.

    (Video deleted after hearing the audio... :eek:)

    The fun stopped though when somebody made too good of a connection and it ripped the wires out of the dealership's "detonator box" that they used to set them off. :rolleyes:

    Had a cousin that lit an M80 under a steel bucket and then sat on it once. :D
