Wow that's crazy. I was not aware of any cases of the stuff going off without a high powered rifle bullet hitting the mixture.
The FBI lately has been going to gun shops asking about sales of it, and aaking if anyone is buying a lot then try to get more info about there usage.
... I know this because the place I'm employed by had a plain clothes fed come in and talk to me- casually brought up tannerite and since we don't sell it anyway he soon gave me his card. Not only was he an FBI agent, he was special agent "WMD Cooridnator" according to his card.
(Wanted to do my own post on this stuff but don't have enough posts yet.. And wasn't sure enough people knew about tannerite sorry OP hope I didn't derail)

That is an ass whopping offense. Again if you don't know EXACTLY what you are doing with a gun ,for your and your family's safety ,turn them over to your nearest vet.
Preferrably Cav but if you know another type of combat vet that will work too.
Think about it,guns are loud and have nasty recoil.You really aren't capable of going head to head with any invader anyway.

What happened is there were idiots doing stupid things. Tannerrite will not react unless a high velocity impact occurs. 22lr isn't enough to set it off in most cases, tannerite in its unmixed form is 100% safe, in its mixed form its also 100% safe absent a high velocity impact. So unless your grandkids are shooting at it with a rifle there isnt much that is going to happen. There is more to this story than what is being portrayed, and from experience i can tell you that either a peice of shrapnal impacted the target or a full on round did. In either case it boils down to stupidity because someone was shooting down range while a guy was setting up a target.edit on 25-8-2013 by C0le because: (no reason given)
