    80 pounds of tannerite is a LOT of tannerite.... a veritable ----ton of it.

    and that definitely evokes the "what were you thinking?" question...

    1/4 pound containers make a very nice boom during special events at the club, and the 2-pounders are especially impressive. 80 pounds? shades of mythbusters (if it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing)

    What an idiot. But at least he didn't start a wildfire that burned over 20,000 acres and a bunch of homes like the moron that started the El Dorado fire.

    I need to get some tannerite and try this stuff out before someone decides to ban it.

    "For safety reasons, Tannerite Sports recommends using no more than 1 pound (0.45 kg) of the mixed composition at once, and will sell its largest targets with a size of 2 pounds (0.91 kg) to professionals only."

    Last town wide election cycle we had an article that would create a noise ordinance. It was done because of one guy who regularly blew up tannerite and some fuds didn't like it. It was voted down by a large margin. Live free or die NH rocks!

    Must be more north in NH.

    This dummy is going to have some issues, people are reporting cracked foundations, which sounds a little suspect to me, but who knows.

    We have a neighbor that sets of fireworks every weekend night during the summer, and maybe 50% of weekend nights in the winter. And not like bottle rockets and sparkler kind of fireworks, like heavy duty, launching a mortar kind of fireworks. It gets old, quickly. They will do it right up to when the town noise ordnance starts, so they aren't doing anything illegal. A neighbor tried to talk to them about it, and they got yelled at and told never to come back on to their property.

    Live Free or Die is awesome, until you run into an ****ole.....

    There's always that one a**wipe who feels it's his duty to screw things up for everyone. This is the kind of stupidity that gets things like Tannerite banned or classified as an explosive (as it is in my state). I really hope they get sued for damages by everyone anyone who had their home damaged, as well as the town for the cost of responding to the emergency calls.

    Didn't read the whole article, but if the findings of the article are that "gender reveal parties should be banned" I am all for it. ;)

    I think they should get arrested for assuming the gender of their baby.

    In our town, the sound of gunfire from people with ranges in their yards is quite common and for the most part, they don't go out of their way to annoy the populace.

    The issue began when one guy started to occasionally blow up some moderate amounts. The response from the town fudds was to harass the guy and eventually get a town vote on the ballot. The result was that the tannerite guys rights were not infringed.

    We live nearby near (KCON) and don't have a problem with it. He does it at reasonable times and maybe twice in a given session. So IMHO, good for him!

    The death toll from this stupidity is mounting. The 206 in Mexico, the 'cannon' filled with gunpowder and the idiot who built an IED.

    The problem is....it's a gender reveal. That means they've already passed their genes to the next generation.

    When I read the article my first thought was that everyone that has been needing some type of house repair for the last 20 years will jump on this band wagon.

    Nope, it ends with:
    "Police said an investigation is ongoing and they will make a determination on charges."

    A little. Um, yeah.

    Unless he planted it in a hole adjacent to their foundation.

    Quarries and their neighbors tend to have ongoing issues with the seismic effects of blasting. Quarries surrounded by residential properties often have a consultant who sets up sensors in those neighborhoods so the operator has a way to prove that he didn't cause a particular set of foundation cracks. But that's for charges measured in tons and placed underground, not for 80lbs on the surface. This seems a bit odd.

    We discussed this one at the range yesterday morning before opening to the public. The RSO said there's no way he would allow Tannerite on the range during normal operations, and he wasn't talking about 80 pounds of it, either. That stuff isn't cheap, either. 80 pounds had to set this guy back a bit of coin, too.

    Tannerite is $19.99 for 2 pounds at Academy in DFW. $800 for 80 pounds. Not cheap, but not crazy.

    Non-binary.

    That's why they used a binary explosive.

    Good question about FPS Russia. He looked like he was having too much fun making those videos, too.

    He was.

    He quit making the videos when his manager died. All sorts of wonky surrounding that... and various conspiracy theories.

    Latest video is five years ago.

    He claims licensing was becoming a serious problem.

    An interview he gave. Plans never amounted to anything...



    A recent summary of the unsolved mystery missing some of the interview stuff that’s been on Kyle’s friend’s podcast — the first link.



    Still was the source of one of the funniest t-shirts ever sold by a YouTuber...
