From the guy who patented the mixture after his last name.

When mixed and used correctly, Tannerite® will not initiate a fire. However, because of knock-off exploding targets made with inferior raw materials that can start fires, the USFS has declared that all exploding rifle targets are forbidden on federal land when a Special Fire Order is in place. This normally happens in the Summer when the roads are posted with large orange signs stating that chainsaw use/camp fires/etc are forbidden, although some dry parts of the Country have these Special Orders throughout the year. Please respect local land-use regulations.
So-called, "Homemade Tannerite®" and patent rip-off targets can often end in catastrophic failure, and has in fact ended up causing serious injury and death. Unfortunately the internet is always riddled with everyone's attempts to show others how to engineer various items, and in this case a patented and safe item. We have inspected many other types of infringing products and some homemade recipes are incredibly unstable and can be detonated on accident by static electricity, friction and flame, making it lethal to the creator. We don't wish to prevent others from experimenting on their own and having fun, but we have heard it all, from people being blown in half by infringer brand X targets, to a young man who blew his pants off (and some other appendages with it), then claimed it was "Tannerite®", which it was NOT. Every time someone gets hurt with their own concoction or a fly-by-night patent thief's product, we get pointed at and we are sick and tired of it.

You have been warned, and Tannerite® accepts no responsibility for any website or individual purporting to have a recipe for homemade Tannerite®. We have spoken with and have on record, contact data to individuals who have in fact been injured by homemade exploding target recipes. The REAL patented Tannerite® target is safe, stable, and can not be activated by anything other than a high powered rifle round.

The only persons or companies allowed to use our trademarked name or sell binary exploding targets, are authorized distributors of Tannerite® Company. We have dealer programs for those who are interested in being in the business of reselling Binary Exploding Targets.

Tannerite has the ability when used carelessly to start fires.

So do tobacco products.

Unless they close every Phantom Fireworks store what the hell is the difference? Tannerite is almost exclusive to firearms owners whereas fireworks are not. I smell the usual witch hunt.

Given your username I think you should recuse yourself from this conversation as you are clearly biased. :)

If it's Genesee Valley park.... those aren't girls.
Thread hijack: I'm amazed at the number of guys who go to that park for the purpose of hooking up with other guys. Between myself and one of my buddies we were approached about 50% of the times that we got there early for kickball. RPD could keep an entire unit busy over there.
