    Default Tannerite is AWESOME!

    So if you haven't seen it or shot it before I would highly reccomend it!! Not because it's LOUD and takes a .223 or bigger but because you can actually feel the boom! Plus it's just FUN!

    Default Recipe out there

    There is a recipe online somewhere and I have not tried it, but we got some at last year's show here in Syracuse and what a blast! (Pun definitely intended) There are vids online showing a refrigerator being blown to peices, and while we didnt mix up that big of a charge, we had a lot of fun with the smaller charges. Totally fun!

    Aluminum powder I think is the active ingredient. You can find that stuff in an etch-a-sketch I heard.

    Tannerite it 100% legal in all 50 states. I have shot alot of Tannerite and it really is alot of fun to shoot. Half pounders, one pounders, three pounders, and a 5 pound charge once and it was just incrediable. Tannerite though is pretty expensive. There are other sites out there selling the same product for 25% cheaper.

    Tannerite's main ingrediant is ammonium nitrate. Mixed with aluminum powder and a couple other chemicals to make it more senesitve to shock. This stuff really is alot of fun to shoot. I would highly recommend it. One pound target is equal to about a stick of dynamite. Buy some while you can before the government thinks its to dangerous for civilian use and makes it illegal.

    The gun is always loaded. Loaded or not. ALWAYS!!!
    Never point at anything you don't want to shoot.
    Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
    Keep aware of your target and what is behind it.

    is this the same stuff they paint on the targets on Top Shot?
    Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money.
    But why don't ever hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money?
    What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't.

    LOL,

    Not only am I a gun enthusiast but I am a total fireworks nut. This stuff tannerite (aluminum powder) can be found and purchased on any fireworks supply online store. Basically the finer the powder (german dark is best) the lowder and more powerful the boom. In order for it to be mixed it has to be added to potassium phosphate. 1/2 and 1/2 EXTREMEMY carefully using the paper method and making sure there is no static electricity around.

    I'm italian and used to buy the M-80's and blockbusters way back before 9/11 in NYC and this is how they are made. Website will not sell you both powders with the tubes now and end plugs anymore because they know what your using it for. Basically you have to use 2 different websites to make your 4th of july boom booms.

    I no longer do this and don't recommend anyone trying it. It is extremely dangerous and people thinking if they jam and pack as much powder once mixed into a thick tube will lose a hand. This stuff is so potent I used to use loose tissue paper on both ends of the tubes instead of wax plugs and a very long fuse. A 250 count string of these fused together hanging from a clothes line from tree to tree makes for one hell of an ending to a show

    If you try to make it yourself it can explode from static, real "tannerite" will not.
