Does c4 explode when shot with a rifle? My buddy says yes but I'm not sure.

They set a claymore off in SWAT with a pistol, so why not.

I dont know. I think it would have to be lit first but then again an impact like that will generate some heat, dont know if its enough to detonate it. pop it wityh a tracer and you may get better results

Yeah, but you can set off Claymores in Delta Force: Black Hawk Down by shooting them too. So that's at least gotta be true

No you can shoot C-4, you can even set it on fire it won't set it off C-4 is a very stable explosive, the only thing that will set it off is a blasting cap, as C-4 requires a shockwave to go off, and a bullet will not produce nearly enough of a shockwave....

Uh, if C4 were sensitive to gunfire, why would they use it in a combat zone?

The real answer is not only no but hell no. It takes a special military blasting cap to set it off. Using a regular blasting cap that is suitable for civillian dynamite will only spray bits of C4 everywhere.

I thought it had to be in the sole of a shoe and lit with a fuse?!?!?!?!

Maybe that's only on an airplane

That was NOT C4. It was a ketone peroxide.
