    Strike Anywhere Matches

    I know I have seen comments on strike anywhere matches on here before, though I can't remember what thread it was... Anyhoo I stumbled onto these, it says they are made by the same manufacturer that made the Ohio Blue Tip matches... Thought some of you may be interested since any strike anywhere matches seem hard to get...

    Matches, Wooden

    Pricey! The box is very similar to the one I remember as a kid -- I think -- when ALL the wooden matches were strike anywhere. We used to carry them in our pockets loose to light firecrackers or shoot at each other with a clothespin match-gun. (We also used to put on diving masks or goggles and play cowboys and Indians with BB guns. You knew when you got shot! )

    Ha! It pops up on a search in google! http://www.deuceofclubs.com/randumb/clothespingun/

    I saw those as well, but I know the Blue Tip are/were very sought after.

    I remember years ago using something called "hurricane matches", which was basically a strike-on-anything match with about 2" of phosphorous (or whatever it is that causes the initial match flare up) instead of the usual 1/8".
    I'd buy a bunch of these if I could find them. . .they flare for about 3 seconds after striking, then the accelerant burns away and it's just like any other match. Only the flame is already 2" wide.

    They're probably illegal in NY. Everything else is.

    I think they are illegal to sell in NY. There are two rationales for that. One is the obvious fire danger. The other is that meth heads use them in the manufacture of meth.

    And yesterday, I found out you have to show ID to buy lighter fluid at Walmart. The beginning of the end of civilization, for sure.

    That must be what makes the head explode 70% of the time and the pieces land on the tips of your fingers and stick or shorts and burn them. I'm specifically talking about the Diamond brand strike anywhere I get at OSH Hardware here in Calif. Love hate type of thing for me. Never used to explode like that but the brand changed the head color to green (eco friendly) and this started.
    Very annoying and somewhat dangerous.
