Tell me about tannerite
Is this shite as awesome as it looks?
Is it appropriate for blowing up watermelons and other assorted things? My buddy has 10 rural acres in Texas. Would we have any problems with this? As in, is it super loud explosions that would attract attention?

re: Tell me about tannerite
I've been involved w a few stump blasts. I think we overdid a but each time bit it's pretty impressive to see. Not sure what county you're referring to but you never know if a lookylou will call for a deputy to check it out.

Tell me about this if you don’t mind? Was it effective?

Drill holes into the stump and fill with tannerite?

I’m gonna have some stumps that will need to be removed. This looks like a fun way to do that with some of them.

Just don’t shoot a fridge or washing machine with it in there

It is amazing.

Be cautious about distance and cover though.

Make your own with prilled ammonium nitrate fertilizer and aluminum powder. About 20% of the cost of brand name tannerite

It is very awesome.
If that rural property is not in the middle of nowhere or your buddy is friends with the neighbors then expect issues. It can rattle windows in a house 200 yards away!! It does draw attention but most people who have heard it know what it is due to the sort of double report the sound of the gunshot followed by the explosion.

^^^^^^^
This right here! I watched a video of some guys that had an old refrigerator loaded up with Tannerite, set up a couple hundred yards away from them and they were gonna shot it with a rifle. The guy shooting made the shoot and a couple others were videoing it, you saw and heard the explosion and the ooo’s and aaawww’s from the guys then a couple seconds after the explosion, the refrigerator door or roof or some other relatively large chunk of white metal came flying by and missed the shooter by less than 2 feet! The video ended quickly after that.

re: Tell me about tannerite
I just got to a public range one day, and had just walked up and was getting everything layed out, and there was a group of shooters there, and they asked if they could shoot..Thought something was strange, just the way they asked, but I had some targets to get ready, and said “sure, go ahead”. Well, what I didn’t know, was they were shooting tannerite they had placed at 150yrds on the range, and holy hell; don’t know how much they had, but you could feel the wave hit you, and it had a mushroom cloud…It still kind of shocks me that it’s legal, lol…

There is a video of a man from Georgia blowing up an old riding lawn mower with tannerite. Some shrapnel came flying off and blew off his leg.

This is Fort Bend County, but out on the edge near Needville. We shoot guns there with no issues but never blew anything up

Damn…well that’s why I’m thinking of things like watermelons, pumpkins, etc. plus my friend probably wouldnt want shrapnel pieces all over.

probably won't be for long thanks to the Tiger King and popularity in big youtube channels. Definitely take cover and be careful. Flair on youtube has some good footage blowing up beaver dams with it. Its also a pretty common tactic for gender reveals in these parts.
