    That stuff is real popular with the fire departments and the Department of Wildlife. Lots of forest fires started with that crap.

    Gives target shooters a bad name since it makes us look like a bunch of Rambos.

    Why are most 20-somethings a bunch or morons in this day and age? I was using (in anger) M203 grenade launchers, M60 machineguns, and hand grenades before I was 18 and never once had a close call from my own actions. Apparently tannerite is now an agent for the process of natural selection...

    His injury sounds severe and I wish him a quick recovery. I assume he was using a Tannerite exploding target, so I went and pulled one of mine out to reread the lable. It gives no reference or cautions on the label about fire danger.

    There are a few other versions of exploding targets besides Tannerite. I've never tried putting it in a fire but I've used a lot of Tannerite and all I've ever got was a cloud of vapor and no fire when it goes off.
