Tannerite!!!!!!! OHHH YEA!
 
So for an early Christmas present I got my brother a HD shotgun. He returned the favor and gave me six cans of tannerite! I had no experience with this stuff but boy is it fun as hell.
Went out Christmas morning and had a friggin ball. There wasn't near enough stuff to blow up. If you guys ever get a chance try it. It is tons of fun and relatively inexpensive all things considered.

I took a video but cant figure out how to post.

I could be wrong but I think you have to upload it to a site like youtube and then post a link.

I would like to play around with some tannerite but a I don't own a firearm that would set it off.

Be careful with it.

One of the locals got some and shot down by his barn. Lost the barn, and an equipment shed in the fire.

The fire got off his property, and up onto the BLM land between his place and a subdivision. The Forest Service just gave him the bill for the eight air attack tankers, and sixty fire fighters it took keep it out of the subdivision. It was only $740,000.

Luckily it was early in the fire season, and the tankers were still at their home base in Missoula, and could be called in. Plus all the Salmon-Challis fire crews were still at home, and could respond to a fire that was less than ten miles from their home base.

Otherwise, the fire would have blown through the subdivision, and the bill would have been in the millions.

Well you could remedy that with a stop by LGS. A mosin will set it off.

Any rifle other than a .22LR will set it off. And it is definitely worth setting off. Especially at least 5lbs worth at the same time.

If you are going to set some off and have neighbors I suggest you either give them a call or call your local LEO office. A couple weeks ago a neighbor maybe quarter mile away set off some and it rattled my windows. I didn't call the law but I did go ride around to make sure everyone was ok.

Try mixing a few of them into a larger container !!! Keep in mind that I think the most you can "legally mix " is 10 pounds. BABOOM
