Since DU isn`t regulated the same as regular uranium - where can i buy some??
DU is being used as an aerodynamic stabilizing material in aircraft wings, cruise missiles, and helicopter blades. No obstacle exists that would
prevent it from proliferating through worldwide arsenals to the point that it becomes a common metal in ships, jeeps, and humvees.
So , where can i buy some? There is over a billion pounds of the stuff just sitting and decaying away.It cannot be used for making bombs , so it is
virtually unregulated as for its uses.
I believe it is still regulated. I know with my time in the Air Force we played with .50 cal DU rounds we shot from the helicopters. The reason
they're regulated is because they are still radioactive and harmful. Though if you put a coat of paint on them they're harmless... unless coming at
you at a high velocity...
I have about 15 pounds of vaseline glass that I use for glass blowing, it contains around 2 to 3% uranium oxides, I'll sell you some marbles :-)
Click the link in my signature line that says DU before you go shopping though, you might not want it.
