    I'll have to call a few places to see if its aloud, if so I'll buy a whole case from you. Why would you blow up a HD TV and Laptop isnt that kinda wasting money?

    nah, they were both donated and were beyond feasible repair [The computer had a bad motherboard which would cost as much as a new one to replace, and the TV had a cracked screen which would also cost as much as a new one] If I could have repaired them I totally would have and bought more tannerite to use in my videos. This project is a not-for-profit type endeavour because I have this horrible addiction to destroying things with copious amounts of firepower so everything goes to making more/better videos, like the fact that I am setting aside paycheck money to pay for a slow motion camera that's only purpose is recording me blowing things up [other than that, I almost never take pictures or video of anything, but catching a computer explode in slow motion will be completely worth almost doubling my investment in the hobby.]


    The only thing I am actually buying new is the turkey for the thanksgiving video I am making [and several packs of green jello for a special request video], because I spent so much on the initial investment, but OH was it worth it :D

    Alot of the stuff I blow up is off the free section of craigslist or donations from viewers or tweeters. Even then if I can use it or sell it [and get express permission from the donor] I will and use the money to further the hobby [because a penny saved is 1/50th of an ounce of tannerite that could be used to blow something up.]

    I got the go ahead to post this again so here it goes:

    I want to blow up a turkey for Thanksgiving, but I ran out of cash, however I have plenty of explosives so a friend told me to raffle some off to pay for the turkey. So here it goes. I have a jar of tannerite, legal in all 50 states, the winner gets this jar sent to their door. 50 cents will buy you an entry into the drawing, so if you donate a dollar you get two entries etc etc...but since yall are members here on TGT, I will double your entries, so $1 gets you four entries. But it gets even better, if you have a twitter and you retweet my tweet about the raffle I will double your entries again, so $1 would give you 8 entries! Every penny of the proceeds is going towards making bigger and better videos, I am keeping absolutely nothing from this. If you are interested in donating you can check my video out, all the links you need are in the description.

    Once I get familiar with the "pit" I'll probably pick up a little bit of this since it's actually pretty affordable. And let's be honest here, blowing up shit is fun. I've read that certain types of ammunition won't ignite it though, so any idea if 9mm will make it go boom?





    Also on a side note, I just can't hold this in anymore. I'm almost 100% sure you were one of the guys who was auditioning for the OZ in the SUB. If so, no creepo, but I was the guy sitting at the table trying to study. - And you guys were totally messing that up. Hahahaha

    REALLY? THATS AWESOME! I totally was one of the guys going out for OZ [sorry I messed your studying up for you] I got picked though and rocked out as OZ.

    as for certain ammo not detonating tannerite, no 9mm wont, there isnt enough energy. Just about any centerfire rifle will work. the only handgun ive seen detonate tannerite was a 500 s&w and thats not really a handgun, more like a hand cannon.

    anyways Im headed out there again this saturday to film some pumpkins getting blown up if you want to come on out with us, just send me a pm and join the convoy :) no worries if you dont have a rifle I have two that I regularly bring that will more than do the trick.

    I have been debating on if I could get a ball mill and mill the fuel down to the 1200 mesh range and see if that would allow detonation via handgun round. Im betting it will, but I dont have a ball mill nor do I want to build one right now :P


    but if you want to join in the invite is always open, and if you have a truck that can pull a 700lb trailer Ill give you a pound of tannerite to help me move it to the pit [im going to build a "its fucking cold but I still want to shoot" enclosure] and leave it down there for shooters or atv folk to go in and keep warm/out of the rain/shielded from shrapnel. basically im going to take the shell off the trailer and leave it there, using stuff thats already there to make a shooter shelter so I can bring my propane heater and stay warm while im out there shooting or filming.
