    My sister set off 20 boxes, in one hit with her behind. We had them stored between the two front seats in a kombi , as father driving across the paddock .Hit a bump and she fell of the seat and landed in between the two seats.

    I remember pulling apart throw downs as a kid, to see what was inside.....not sure what I expected and had absolutely no idea about touch powder :rolleyes:
    Ended up with a scattered mess of small gravel and white powder on the front concrete porch at home.
    Confused and hearing my mother fast approaching, I thought I'd better brush the mess away with my hand....
    You guessed it !......friction, gravel and touch powder is what makes throw downs go "bang", only this was a whole packet !
    Scared the absolute 5hit out of me when it went off............ and I thought I'd blown a couple of fingers off in the shock and confusion.
    Of course, no damage done.....and I now have first hand experience of touch powder !! :D
    Cheers,
