Oh yeah. Tanerite is great! It requires at least a .223 to set it off, and you'll want to be at least 50yds away. Maybe further depending how your targets are setup.

Here's a Tanerite target video...

Walter63a: You would be most welcome in Ohio where you can own class III weapons. But as far as legal fireworks go, you can buy them here but you must sign an affidavit that you will take them out of state for use! blink.gif Talk about a stupid and frequently violated law. sad.gif

Thanks Hawksnest, I really do want to relocate. blink.gif sad.gif That is a stupid law. mad.gif I do believe that people can buy and use fireworks in PA, though. I think they are far less restrictive further West. smile.gif Regards, Walter

Back to the Tannerite... I've used (and shot) quite a bit of it, and it's every bit "as advertised"... lots of smoke and noise. It's relatively stable, and is not classified as an explosive until you mix it. As for .223, each time i've tried, it's been hit or miss (no pun intended.) Sometimes it will light, other times, not. A .308 is will definitely set it off, but as others have said, don't stand too close to it. Give yourself a minimum of 50 yards (we shoot it at a minimum of 100 yards.)

Thanks Nick! There are a lot of people who are either ignorant of the laws, or they are just flouting the law back here in Western New York. There must be a few of the same species selling in PA, as well. Every year, just before the Fourth of July (sometimes months before), many locals go to PA and OH to buy all types of fireworks (firecrackers, M-80's, etc.), bring them back to N.Y. and give them to friends, sell them, use them, etc. ohmy.gif blink.gif rolleyes.gif Oh well, I guess I'm too straight, or I just don't want to get arrested (for illegal possession and use). That happens all the time here in Western New York too! sad.gif mad.gif blink.gif ph34r.gif Regards, Walter


P.S. So, getting back to the Tannerite. Does anyone know where to buy it, and where it is legal to use (which states)? biggrin.gif cool.gif

You ought to come to Arkansas (plug as I am a Realtor). Not only can you buy, own, shoot MGs and silencers, you can hunt with them here as well (No, I dont deer hunt with a MG).

You can also shoot off all the fireworks you want, and buy them all here. You can get a concealed carry permit.

I shoot my Thompson off the back porch all the time. I live 1/2 mile from the city limits. No one cares.

If you see my Thompson in the avitar, thats where I do most all of the shooting.

I have lots of property here and you can build top of the line here for less than $65 a square foot.

Your real estate dollars go a LONG way here in Arkansas.

Have a look here

Tanerite can be bought directly from Skylight Explosives. (link Skylight Exlposives ) Give them a call, you'll probably speak directly to Dan Tanner (Inventor of Tanerite, and fellow NFA gun nut). According to the website it's 50 state legal. As it's shipped, it's not an explosive, so it can probably be shipped anywhere. Mixing it up and making loud noises (along with having fun in general) might be prohibited in your area.

I have been able to knick the targets on the side with both .308 and .223 and not set them off. But, a direct hit in the middle with a .308 or .223 has always been golden.

I buy it by the case. It's way better than fireworks. Setting off your first Tanerite target is like shooting a TSMG for the first time. You'll get a big stupid grin on your face, and will be slobering for another target.

Thanks beechnut! I think, unfortunately, fun is an endangered species in N.Y., if you enjoy firearms and explosives. blink.gif ohmy.gif sad.gif Which state do you shoot your Tanerite targets in? Regards, Walter

P.S. beechnut, I just noticed in your profile that you are in Texas. I can't Imagine two more different places, regarding firearms and fireworks, than Texas and New York! sad.gif blink.gif

Joe Dirt: So your gonna' tell me that you don't have no black cats, no roman candles, or screaming mimis?
Kicking Wing: No.
Joe Dirt: Oh come on man. You got no lady fingers, fuzz buttles, snicker bombs, church burners, finger blasters, gut busters, zippity do das, or crap flappers?
Kicking Wing: No, I don't.
Joe Dirt: You're gonna stand there, owning a fireworks stand, and tell me you don't have no whistling bungholes, no spleen spliters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, hüsker düs, hüsker donts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick, or one single whistling kitty chaser?
Kicking Wing: No...because snakes and sparklers are the only ones I like.
Joe Dirt: Well that might be your problem, it's not what you like, it's the consumer.
