Arizona wildfire source discovered...

Let me just say there is something very very odd about this story, and I dont mean the feds taking a day to react.

Just something about the story is odd.

The real trouble starts when you have drunk stupid people. With guns...

I think it might be bogus as well. There is a long and undistinguished history of pinning fire origins incorrectly.

Absolutely. That goofy should have to spend the rest of his life paying for that.

Last summer the Feds shut down the roadside shooting galleries in the National Forest areas in southern Arizona because of the risk of fire. I know because we took a drive to find one for some 9mm shooting and they were closed.

Shooting one of those shotgun shells in this environment, which is significantly dryer than last year, is incredibly stupid. I absolutely believe this happened as described. Stupidity runs rampid in the young, speaking from experience.

20 some fires in Utah have been connected to gun fire.

The Weber- Fire in my neck of the woods is under investigation, kids playing with fireworks and shooting guns.
It is so darn dry here that even a spark from a bullet hitting a rock could start a fire.

Copper and lead hitting a rock will spark? Who new?

It is more like the idiots shooting NH3NO3, and gasoline, and propane targets, as well as incidiary and tracer rounds.

But I have to admit, I did see a .22 lead bullet spark off rusted metal, once.
