du Pont makes some fun products, don’t they?
Many here agree that 500 lbs. of 'explosives' isn't really that much, considering the likely uses. It's not like you use it all at once, else there would be no need to have it in storage.
“du Pont makes some fun products, dont they?”
Oh yes! And Atlas and a few others :)
(well, at least they used to, I don’t now who’s in the game any more)
Wiley coyote loves Acme products too.
