How does an M-1000 compare to the M-80s that were popular, and could be sold legally in the US, when I was a kid? Also, I wouldn't call this thing a firecracker like they did in the article.

An M-80 has 2.5 grms of powder and an M-1000 has 50+ grms. I remember the M-80s too and they had a sticker that said not to hold them in your hand.
It's surprising this guy didn't loose his arm and his face in the process.

I think I have it now. And I used to think an M-80 was dangerous.

Illegal Fireworks

M-80
Average Size: 5/8" diameter, 1-1/2" long
Average Load: .12 oz. explosive mixture
Risk Factor: Damage to fingers, hands and eyes

M-100 Silver Salute
Average Size: 1" diameter, 2-1/2" long
Average Load: .33 oz. explosive mixture
Risk Factor: Severe damage to face, arms and body


M-250
Average Size: 1" diameter, 3" long
Average Load: .48 oz. explosive mixture
Risk Factor: Severe crippling, disfiguring injuries


M-1000, Quarter Stick
Average Size: 1" diameter, 6" long
Average Load: .97 oz. explosive mixture
Risk Factor: Extremely severe injuries to body; has caused death


Illegal Explosive Devices Are Not Fireworks. Colors and Sizes May Vary.

We messed with M-80's and Cherry Bombs a few times when we were kids. You can get seriously injured even if you think you're a safe distance after lighting an M-80. The M-80's I've seen are made out of a thick paper substrate wrapped into a tight barrel shape... the ends made from a hardend material to seal the load.

Well, once we lit one on the ground as the end was pointed toward our group of friends.. as it went off all of a sudden a neighbor girl held her forehead above her eye.

Damn thing blew that hardened material 50 feet and hit her putting a huge gash in her forehead - she was lucky it didn't hit her eye, because she would have lost that for good.

Cherry Bomb the same... made out of hardend material that will take an eye out even from a safe distance.

Even though I own 2 of them, my observations lead me to believe that people stricken with the idiot gene seem to have a love for jeeps.

jannikt has a point. However, lifted trucks are affected the same way.

Too bad the Jeep is stock. I bet he could have used the extra money selling mods.
