    I ordered mine direct, ten 1-lb canisters. There's a huge rogue bull on the ranch that has to be taken down, and if I am successful, we'll see what the Tannerite can do to his carcass. :happy0001:

    I will play Devil's advocate on this

    Watch yourself with the it is a reported substance to the BATFE boys.

    Also in Texas...
    Title 7 Chapter 28 g 1 of the Texas Penal Code states...

    "[​IMG]Explosive[​IMG] weapon" means any [​IMG]explosive[​IMG] or incendiary device that is designed, made, or adapted for the purpose of inflicting serious bodily injury, death, or substantial property damage, or for the principal purpose of causing such a loud report as to cause undue public alarm or terror, and includes:

    Title 10 46.01 (2) of the Penal Code
    (2) "[​IMG]Explosive[​IMG] weapon" means any [​IMG]explosive[​IMG] or incendiary bomb, grenade, rocket, or mine, that is designed, made, or adapted for the purpose of inflicting serious bodily injury, death, or substantial property damage, or for the principal purpose of causing such a loud report as to cause undue public alarm or terror, and includes a device designed, made, or adapted for delivery or shooting an [​IMG]explosive[​IMG] weapon.


    So, the way I read this.
    Tannerite is an explosive weapon when used for any of the above definitions.

    Now with all that said...
    Use small enough amounts so it is no louder than a rifle report and there is no issue.

    I use the stuff to blow tree stumps. I just tell my neighbors I am doing it first so I don't "cause undue public alarm or terror" I also make my own.
