Oh, fishing with m80s always provided plenty for dinner when they werenít bitting!
My Mentor Master Plumber, brought a Tandy in 1979, he was going to keep a truck Inventory parts list so he could always know which trucks had certain
parts, plus what in the storeroom, of course it probably could only hold what one truck had on it, LOL,

We never fished with m80s, did blow up some frogs, cicadas, maybe a turtle or two, wasp nests, mailbox, friend's sister's Barbie Corvette, etc ...

well I can confirm that taping an m-80 to an arrow and shooting it doesnt work well, the tape doesnt hold it on the arrow...I guess more tape needed, but at that time too many beers and some weed...

I'm decent at math I believe. The math here doesn't end well.

I used to tape estes rocket engines to the fronts of arrows I had where the tips were messed up. I would angle the engines the same as the fletching. Even with only an A engine they would go like 1000'!!
