We did that too. Occasionally though, if you did it wrong, the powder could get trapped under a thumbnail and give you a good burn.
I used to tape a strip accross my bb-catcher bullseye and shoot them with my bb gun from about 20 yards away. Maybe that's how I got to be a pretty good shot with rifles.
You don't want to know what we did with firecrackers. I never told my kids about those adventures and shenanigans. Think of dark summer nights, with arrows flying staight up, fircrackers with lit fuses tied to the arrow shafts, and not knowing where that arrow would land. Hey, we were kids, indistructable and immortal.
