These types of accidents are almost always caused by "operator error". Maybe he was trying to mix some other chemical into the tannerite for effects.

Tannerite will detonate when a projectile traveling at the right velocity hits the target. The kinetic energy formed upon impact will cause the detonation. So unless he is mixing the powder with the same kinetic energy as a rifle impact I highly dbout he can cause it to ignite.

Didn't say a thing about "tannerite". There are other makers out there that put other things in to make a flash and such. Who know about those.

I've mixed quite a few tannerites (don't have any more DOJ) with no problems.

But, you never know.

Article didn't say it was Tannerite. Having not been there myself, I'd have to guess that:

1. it was some cheapo knock off
2. static discharge in the form of a spark caused it

The only person who knows what happened got blowed up.

Then again, how does a Ruger LCR "go off" without a finger on the trigger?

People do stupid things and get hurt. I have the scars to prove it.

Read the last sentence of the article. That's the meat of it. The BLM is investigating whether they were trespassing on federal land. That's just swell.

Thugs and shysters running our country while good men still believe that voting and phone calls are going to change anything.

We should be investigating the BLM and the FEDS. Not the other way around.

I am wondering if this is my cousin. Right age, right area, and he used to mix his own tannerite. Maybe he ventured in to something with more kick? I have to give him a call... wingnut.

Doesn't say tannerite, but assuming it's what they are talking about.

Probably stood 10 yards away like an idiot and blasted himself and wants to say it "just went off" while mixing it so he can get the blame off himself for being an idiot. Sounds like something someone would say that just made the news.

The rimfire versions of the stuff WILL be set off by fire. May have been smoking while mixing. I know a guy who once made a bunch of firecrackers by mixing up the rimfire stuff and putting pieces of cannon fuse in them and taping the little yellow and red plastic target containers together. I heard it was a lot of fun, but could definitely see it being dangerous if open flame was around at the time.

Improvised explosives are not something to trifle with. Many years ago, I knew of a situation where a father was teaching his son how to make some sort of explosive or rocket with a spent co2 cartridge. When they lit it off the charge sent the cartridge right into the boy's chest, killing him instantly.

The guy wasn't mixing it when it went off. You know he shot way to much of it, got injured and made up the bs mixing thing for whatever reason.

Btw, it is people like this guy that gets stuff banned and gets BLM closed. Don't be him in Cali.
