Exploding targets,

I am thinking of ordering some to 'spice' up our range adventures out to the desert, any of you guys have any experience with these. I am tired of shooting paper and it may encourage my 14 year old to actually 'aim' at something instead of "spray and pray" .......LOL!

Get a Saiga .308 and go due east until you are in bear country. Find the nearest landfill.
I hear the bears explodewhen hit by a .308 from a Saiga.
LOL!!!
Sorry Lyle, I couldn't help it!

I can't get the exploding bear image out of my head!
I been dreaming about exploding bears!
Hell, if I hear the word "explode", I instantly see a bear.
I know, "get some help".

The exploding targets are a "BLAST"!!!!! Every time we go target shooting, we load up a few of them. Try mixing 2 21/2 pounders together in a plastic Folgers coffee container. We've blown holes into culverts with those... You will feel it like crazy. I found a website the other night, I'll see if I can find it again, that had better prices than Sportsman's Guide does. They are made from Amonium Nitrate and flash powder. U can order the flash powder online, and buy the amonium Nitrate @ a local Farmers CO-OP. Dont know if U got those where you live, but we do. I just dont know the exact measurements yet. But will really soon!!!

ACE, I live in Utah,

pretty much anything goes once I cross the Salt lake county line out to the desert, I am going to try them....I know about ammonium nitrate, we used it to 'blow up' stumps when I was a kid in TX.

But Charles,

I already save my poor Subaru's trunk full of weapons and ammo box's where would I put them? Plus you ought to know better than anyone that shit that goes "BOOM" is much more fun. I will look into Tannerite tomorrow and see what I can find.

doing a night fire at a private party.
We stuffed about a pound of steel wool
down the barrel of a mountain howitzer
and let her rip.
Made the 4th of July look like kid stuff

This guy was welcoming comparisons of his stuff and tannerite.
Maybe he is still selling.

Exploding targes are awesome....

We sell the Sure Shot exploding targets...

We used to sell tannerite which was fun, but switched to this brand. It is packaged better and seems to have a bit more "boom" for the buck. We tested it out and it was more powerfull adn our customers love it.
