I’ll admit it, I am completed enthralled with binary explosves like Tannerite. Having said that, I use them with extreme caution, typically on sanctioned ranges under good conditions at minimum safe distances. Those that do not heed the warnings risk life and limb.

FPSRussia’s infamous video is the most obvious reminder, but a new one cropped up a bit ago on a single rock being thrown at lethal velocity over 100 yards.

Always exersize extreme caution when having fun. It will allow you to keep having fun.

And another reminder just in case my point did not come across.

    Well we can all just look at it as natural selection. Stupid people doing stupid things won't reproduce to pass on their stupidity. Play stupid games win stupid prizes. I can't judge too harshly. I did some dumbass things in my younger years and the fact I am even alive is a miracle. I did not however do any of it on camera
