I started a fire once while shooting.

Just a wee little one, a couple stamps of the foot put it out.

I had recently attended a gun show and saw some 9mm tracer rounds,
I thought "cool, just like the movies" so I bought a package.

Took them out to the Lone Rock area and shot at some cans.
Didn't see anything that looked like a tracer.

One however went through the can into the sagebrush behind it, whoomp, up in flames.
Ran over and stomped it out, no worries.

Good thing I wasn't an idiot and try shooting them into the air to see if they would trace better.
Fire would have been a bit further away.

No, I haven't bought any since, and this was many years ago when I was a little less mature.
