Default Looking at picking up some tannerite...

Im looking to buy some tannerite..

About 25LBS of it.. I found a pretty good deal on a bundle of it.

Only thing is.. Does this stuff expire?? I dont plan on doing one of those 20lbs of tannerite idiot videos... Well sorta


But how long can you store this stuff and how does it need to be stored?

From everything I've seen Tannerite is in deed legal In CA.

I may be wrong.. I am not a lawyer for a reason..

But from what I've seen around the net tannerite is legal in CA..

I just think having over like 30 or 50lbs or something ridiculous with out proper permits is illegal.

to be honest, i do not know if tannerite is illegal in california, but i do know that they ship it here and i have shot it in the desert, it is awesome. good when shooting long distance to see if you hit the target. not really sure if it is good for blowing up an old fridge, car door, old sewing machine or any other random thing that can be blown up.

Yea Ive shot it with a bunch of buddies too the first time I ever went shooting..

Funny thing is I've never seen any tannerite actually used for long distance targets..
Always hey what can we blow up or how loud will this be haha

Thats what me and my cousin plan on doing... Taping a few of them together put it out at 300 yards and just head that nice big kaboom and scare a few of the girls were bringing out and honestly get our adrenalin going a little

good ol redneck fun.

Never expect (or assume) LEO's to actually know the law - bad mistake.
Tannerite is perfectly legal and just a darn good time.

Shoot and enjoy!

Yea LEO's usually don't know ditally squat when it comes to gun laws..
Me and my friends were getting ready for a shooting trip and all brought our guns (in locked cases) to his house the day before we left and an under cover cop just happened to be out across the street at the time..

yatta yatta yatta swat was called and there was 8 police patrol cars 3 SUV's 2 SWAT trucks all waiting around the corner from us and they pulled my buddy over and had him in cuffs.. He had a fully legal AR 15 and my Ar and my 700 still in his trunk on the way to the house. (He ran to the Liquor store down the street real fast before I got our guns out)

While on the curb watching them go through the gun cases we hear

"Oh that's illegal it has a magazine"

"Hooolllyyy Jesus" (My person favorite one comment hahaha)

"Thats a military sniper rifle"

"These guys are going away for a looonnnggg time" comments kept comin out from each officer that walked over to the trunk.

One officer was cool and told us hey guys I saw your guns Im a gun guy my self. You guys look cool as long as you dont have any illegal mods.. Just stay cool and cooperate and you guys should be fine. BTW nice rifles..

Long story short MOST LEO's know nothing about gun laws..

Thats what lawyers are for...

No offense to any LE guys out there..


Back on topic... I take it there isn't any special storage or exasperation for this stuff??

Tannerite is legal in CA, but I don't know how much of a fire risk it is using it in SoCal. Just use it responsibly and be beware of any fire risk and you should be OK.

Default I couldn't get my tanzenite to explode

So I was reading all these posts about tanzenite targets and exploding cars and such so I got some of the Tanzenite that my wife bought a few years ago while we were on a cruise (I should really call it an eating binge). I hit it square on at 100 yards with a 69 grain .223 SMK (nice shot if I say so myself) and .... nothing. So I tried it a few more times and same result, no bang just a shattered stone. So what's the deal with blowing up tanzenite.

By the way my wife is all POed at me now, she says that she loved that tanzenite and she didn't want me shooting at it. So now i got no boom and an angry wife. I hate tanzenite!

If a LEO ever tells you something is illegal, ask him to cite the PC. If he can't he's probably wrong, and you should double-check before you spread the info. This is one way so many LEOs themselves get misinformed, one respected cop gets it wrong and misleads entire departments.

I hope you do know the difference between "Tannerite" and "Tanzanite"......

Your wife should be POed at you.....destroying her jewelry is like her destroying your guns.

I'm going hope for sarcasm on this one, especially considering how expensive a piece big enough to reliable hit at 100 yards would be...

Maybe her jewelry should be HER guns? haha.

Cop asked me about shaving my beard/goatee one time, he said what if your wife wants you to shave it. I said I married the wrong person then.

I like the idea of checking with the fire marshal first, even just an anonymous info check. Permit might cost some big bucks but worth the no whammys. That and it might help showing that you know what your doing and not just winging it. Getting away with something and doing something legal are two different things.

Where I shoot at there is no risk of fire.. Maybe a tumble weed or 2. My spot is all dirt/rocks..

I either shoot in AZ or up by Barstow.

But how is this a fire risk...... Tannerite is a reactive material with no flame or spark... Only time they are flammable is when people put flame and propane tanks next to them and the propane tank gives and the propane meets the open flame. Tannerite is a water vapor when exploded..

Tannerite is LEGAL to possess and own. But if you think it's "Legal" to detonate ANY kind of explosive in CA....you're in for a rude awakening if the wrong cop catches you.

I sat on 40 lbs of it for nearly 3 years. It was fine. As long as the containers are properly closed and not exposed to too much humidity, you're fine.

The stuff looks cool. Probably something that you'd only want to use out in the desert though.

Why not go on their website. Get the phone number. Call it. (Daniel Tanner will probably answer, as he has every time I have called). Then just .........get ready for it......... ASK!

12301. (a) The term "destructive device," as used in this chapter,
shall include any of the following weapons:
(1) Any projectile containing any explosive or incendiary material
or any other chemical substance, including, but not limited to, that
which is commonly known as tracer or incendiary ammunition, except
tracer ammunition manufactured for use in shotguns.
(2) Any bomb, grenade, explosive missile, or similar device or any
launching device therefor.
(3) Any weapon of a caliber greater than 0.60 caliber which fires
fixed ammunition, or any ammunition therefor, other than a shotgun
(smooth or rifled bore) conforming to the definition of a
"destructive device" found in subsection (b) of Section 479.11 of
Title 27 of the Code of Federal Regulations, shotgun ammunition
(single projectile or shot), antique rifle, or an antique cannon. For
purposes of this section, the term "antique cannon" means any cannon
manufactured before January 1, 1899, which has been rendered
incapable of firing or for which ammunition is no longer manufactured
in the United States and is not readily available in the ordinary
channels of commercial trade. The term "antique rifle" means a
firearm conforming to the definition of an "antique firearm" in
Section 479.11 of Title 27 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
(4) Any rocket, rocket-propelled projectile, or similar device of
a diameter greater than 0.60 inch, or any launching device therefor,
and any rocket, rocket-propelled projectile, or similar device
containing any explosive or incendiary material or any other chemical
substance, other than the propellant for that device, except those
devices as are designed primarily for emergency or distress signaling
purposes.
(5) Any breakable container which contains a flammable liquid with
a flashpoint of 150 degrees Fahrenheit or less and has a wick or
similar device capable of being ignited, other than a device which is
commercially manufactured primarily for the purpose of illumination.
(6) Any sealed device containing dry ice (CO2) or other chemically
reactive substances assembled for the purpose of causing an
explosion by a chemical reaction.
(b) The term "explosive," as used in this chapter, shall mean any
explosive defined in Section 12000 of the Health and Safety Code.
The explosion is not created by a chemical reaction like it says. It takes a serious shock to set it off. It will not go off just by the reaction of the two chemicals being added together. It is perfectly leagal as long as you are not stupid about it you wont get in trouble with it.


my bottle of tannernite doesnt say it has an experation date. i dont know if Aluminium Powder and what ever else is in there has a halflife. Should be easy to figure out if i could remember what the other reactant is.

I tried 9mm, 40, and 22 on our last trip to the desert shooting tannerite. It would only put holes in the container.
It took at least a 223 to set it off. We had a ranger drive by. No issues.

Take care,Stan
I disagree 100%. It does create fire. The previous pics were from a container with 15 pounds of properly mixed tannerite.

Well that is probably because you added another element or propane tank r went off of the suggested use of the materials.. From what I have read it is like big said.. It is a water vapor with no flame nor sparks.. Its a strict reaction to the mix being pushed appart by supersonic speeds of the bullet. Causes a reaction of the sonic boom from splitting and the smoke is pure water caper they added in so you can see it and not just hear the powder explode.. Or else it would just be a loud noise..

They all looked like this when using more than 15 pounds. It seemed to be the magic number to cause major explosions.
We would just mix 30 the half pound containers, and then dump it in a big cardboard box.

Shoot it..Feel the rush.

It's mostly a combination of metal powder (aluminum) and some kind of oxidizer -- ammonium perchlorate I think. With a few other things in there too, in very small amounts.

It should stay good a long time if you keep the containers tightly capped and keep them away from moisture and humidity.

I'm curious, when you say "perfected", did you add anything at all to the mixture? Please reveal, because normally you do NOT see flame like in your pictures with Tannerite. Thanks.
