Sorry if this has posted in the past, I searched and did not see it.
Sometimes there is a fine line between being an operator and nearly being a suicide bomber. (video is not graphic)
Too funny! This deserves a donutwatch keyword.
“Sure you used enough dynamite there Butch?”
We used to use a empty 2 ltr soda pop bottle. Drill a small hole in the cap and put in 6 inches of det cord w/ an electric cap. That could also be rigged with a small 10 second time fuze on an M60 igniter to same amount of 6 inches of det cord.
That set up w/ the soda pop bottle “cap” was saved in our entry kits and when we needed to make a dynamic entry on a dwelling we filled the pop bottle with water screwed on the cap w/ the det cord inside used a piece of wooden dowel to hang the bottle at the correct height and leaned it into the door between a dead bolt and the door knob and step back a few feet........It would kick almost any door . If recon determined door was reinforced we used a few royal ordnance products that did the trick with a hell of a lot less damage than we see in that video.
The water bottle door knocker produced zero frag and basically did the jame job a ram would but took only one try verses a beating by a grape ape steroid monkey on point.
I never heard of the water bottle trick, but the physics seem perfect as you laid it out. Big push, tamping effect, and no frag backwards. Too bad I don’t get to play with that stuff anymore.
LOL! Candygram for Mongo!
