I don't know why everyone does not share my delight with explosives. If they don't, it has to be some abhorrent character defect.

--Ragnar Benson, from Ragnar's Guide to Home and Recreational Use of High Explosives, pg.110, 1988.

As with some other things that are beyond what our ape-like evolution prepared us for, explosions are, at some level, very odd and curious things. Our brains are programmed to pay special attention to strange and unusual things -- 'magic' things. Explosions invoke that curiosity of magic in our brains. A gun with its 'action at a distance' capability is a magic tool. But at long distances there typically isn't the immediate confirmation that something really happened 'out there'. I change that. By creating a sort of Walt Disney-like world where 'magic' happens, I give the shooter an escape from reality. This is a Magic Kingdom for long range shooters. For one day I give them the keys to the Kingdom where they get to perform their own magic.

--Joe Huffman, March 26, 2002, when asked, "Why does the average Boomershoot participant attend the shoot?"
