My friend brought back quart jar sized bottles of tanerite. We set it out about 50 yards.... I put one into it.... OH!!! Felt that pressure wave in my belly. Shook widows 1500' away. We were taken aback so much, that the pregnant pause after the explosion was about 5 seconds long... Then we all burst out laughing like giddy little kids.
The blast circle denuded the ground was about 22'.
The possibilities of this stuff is only limited to your imagination...
I shot a small amount and didn't get back the prescribed distance and blew my hat off. You can buy stuff a lot more powerful in a farm store and drug store. You have to mix the Tannerite so mixing the other stuff would give much more explosive power. We used to make pot holes for ducks using fertilizer and kerosene. Most construction companies have dynamite also.
Let's ban fertilizer and diesel fuel while we are at it. And there are common household items that make nice explosives. I won't name them on the internet but one is sold in every grocery store. And most folks would have it in their home.
A gent by where I live blew up a dump truck with it, had the FBI,DEA, DAF,BIA (on the reservation), DOE (nuclear plant warning sirens went off) and the Mn. st. law enforcement, ended up nothing could be done; by the way he shot the tannerite w/ a 50 cal. about 1/4 mi. away, this was on his property.
I guess we should ban gasoline, propane, diesel, fertilizer, cold packs, hair bleach, finger nail polish remover, aspirin, drain cleaner, swimming pool chemicals, all knives, sharp scissors, cars, trucks, airplanes, ropes, sports equipment in general, pressure cookers, paint,.......... I believe that might cut down on some violence (of course there is still arson, poisonings, and a myriad of other ways to commit violence).
There is a youtube video out there where guys put several pounds of Tannerite in a old grain bin they wanted to destroy. Don't remember how much they put inside. After it went off, all they had to do was pick up the pieces! Nothing left standing. Guys play with it around here all the time.
