The Washoe County Comission is looking to ban exploding targets.
Please tell them to oppose the ban
Exploding targets are binary explosives that have to be mixed from two separate components. They are only legal to mix at the range because it is illegal to transport them mixed. They require a significantly powerful round to hit them in order to detonate so they are not really sensitive nor dangerous to handle. The fire risk is not significant so long as they are used appropriately.
