Wish I could find a can of (as far as I can remember ...Albanian) surp. Not only was the sheet of flame out of M44 or M38 most visually impressive, it was extremely loud! It was sometimes enough to make people in the adjoining booths retreat ...
Great to sneak a surprise by adding one to the magazine mixed in with silver tip to watch the expression on the shooter's face.
Fun in the short guns but it would almost completely burn in a 91/30 with no visible flash. Kind of smokey and really dirty powder though.
Our country is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit: by consolidation of power first, and then corruption, its necessary consequence.
