Week in Review:

Ryan: Sparks From Titanium Firing Pin

From Daniel Watters:

Some metals just spark more than others on impact or under friction. If I understand correctly, these metals have typically formed a passivated oxide layer over their surface. However, when friction or impact break off tiny fragments of the metal, the metal can ignite from the combination of heat and the sudden exposure of the non-passivated surface to oxygen.

Message: Just started listening to the show and I love it--working my way through your shows from the beginning. I was so excited to hear about the $179 deal for a black powder gun and kit on Brownells, but I assume that deal is long gone. Most of their black powder guns are out of stock now.
