News Quiz: How Should You Properly Dispose of Ammo? Okay, concentrate. Heres the question:
You find a .22 cartridge. You do not have a .22 rifle. How should you dispose of the cartridge?
- A. Bury it.
- B. Bring it to a friend who does own a .22 rifle.
- C. Bring it to a gun shop for them to dispose of.
- D. Smack it with a hammerhard.
Answer: From WANE 15 News:
"I smacked the bullet and fell down and blood came pouring out," Fath said. "I was hitting it to smash it. I didn't expect it to go bang."
Fath said he'll never hit a bullet with a hammer again.
"I wasn't thinking about it. It was the dumbest thing I ever did in my life. I suggest nobody do it," [George] Fath [of Seuben County, Indiana] said.

Actually, it is OK to hit a bullet with a hammer.....just make sure to hit yourself in the head with the hammer first.

Hitting a bullet shouldn't cause any problems. Hitting a primer OTOH...

I notice this narrative says nothing about the round going off... for all I know he’s an uncoordinated buffoon who fell on something [possibly sharp].

Give it to a lib, tell them you’ve reformed, and ask them if they would do the honor of burning it in an open fire for you.

A fun and (sort-of) safe thing to do is to pull the bullet from the casing, and THEN smack the casing with a hammer.

E. 1: Have extra .22 ammo and no .22 rifle
2: Find a gun owner who’s complaining about the ammo shortage
3: ????? (OK, sell them to him/her)

E. Surreptitiously toss it into the campfire.
When I was a teen, we were out camping and one evening a buddy threw a .22 into the campfire. We all ducked for cover and waited. Nothing. My buddy goes over and says, "It landed in the ashes" and proceeded to nudge it towards the fire with his finger. Naturally it goes off and he grabs his hand and yells. The brass case was torn open and lodged in his finger. We had to use a fork to pry it out. He didn't do that again.
[Sidebar] I remember seeing a Hopalong Cassidy movie where he sneaks up on a bunch of rustlers and lobs a bag of cartridges into their campfire. The rounds start popping off and the bad guys are dropping like flies. That and the 50-shot six-shooters were my favorites. Only in Hollywood.

I loved the Stooges feeding ammo belts into a meat grinder and shooting the bad guys outside the cabin.
Humm maybe he should have tried that! :)
