Cheers To The Molotov Cocktail!


Happy New Year!

My favorite “New Years Eve” drink is the High Octane Molotov Cocktail.

Possibly the most widely used incendiary device in the world.  It’s easy and cheap to make.

The Molotov cocktail, also known as a petrol bomb, poor man’s grenade, fire bomb (not to be confused with an actual fire bomb) or just Molotov is a generic name used for a variety of bottle-based improvised incendiary weapons.

 Due to the relative ease of production, they are frequently used by amateur protesters and non-professionally equipped fighters in urban guerrilla warfare. They are primarily intended to set targets ablaze rather than instantly destroy them.

In the U.S., the Molotov is considered a “destructive device” by the ATF and is illegal in many states. As always, I never advocate breaking the law and landing yourself in jail.

A Molotov cocktail is a breakable glass bottle containing a flammable substance such as gasoline or petrol or a napalm-like mixture, with some motor oil added, and usually a source of ignition such as a burning cloth wick held in place by the bottle’s stopper. The wick is usually soaked in alcohol or kerosene, rather than gasoline.

In action, the wick is lit and the bottle hurled at a target such as a vehicle or fortification. When the bottle smashes on impact, the ensuing cloud of petrol droplets and vapor ignites, causing an immediate fireball followed by a raging fire as the remainder of the fuel is consumed.

It’s also a very good bet that besides a fire arm, it will be the most used weapon in a grid down SHTF environment.
