QUOTE=flyingwelshman;918509]Twelve though?

But my question was: who has actually had to fire one off? (flare that is)[/QUOTE]

Back in my, shall we say less than reputable days a bunch of us were having a big back yard party. A keg or 5 , local band and about 100 of our closest friends. Of course there were some who crashed but at $5 a head who cared. Some smart guy thought it would be cool to shoot off a flare. Reloaded and was about to fire a second was told it wouldn't be a good idea. So he just put the flare gun back in his pocket where it belonged. While I was rolling him in the grass trying to separate him from the flames some guy with a bucket of water tried to throw it on him.

but to answer had to fire one off, on purpose, no
