Light Up Your World: Shoot a Propane Tank with a Tracer at Night

Shoot a Propane Tank With A Tracer At Night And Light Up Your World

If you’ve ever wondered what shooting a propane tank at night it looks like, you came to the right place. That explosion really lit up the desert!

If shooting a 1-pound propane canister with a compound bow is impressive, shooting a 30 pound propane tank with a .50cal incendiary round during the day is awesome, and shooting a similar-sized propane tank at night must be out-of-this-world cool.

Please don’t try this at home! Leave that sort of stuff to guys like Uncle Rob.

Watch the video to see just how impressive the resulting spectacle was:

I’ll bet people from miles around saw that explosion!

I’m not quite sure how much of the fire was caused by the tracer, though. As you can see, there was a fire burning near the tank before the shot. Believe it or not, it’s pretty darn hard to ignite a fire with a single tracer. Instead, the bullet probably just punctured the tank and allowed the already burning fire to ignite the stream of pressurized propane escaping from the hole.
