They're known to ban members for as little as not searching, asking for help, bad spelling, having an attitude, talking crap, and having only basic knowledge of explosives and chemistry.


i have to say that you made an accurate post there, i got myself banned for writing "cao" instead of "cap"

those explosives are not just used for destroying things, they make detonation cords and those things to splatter liquid fuel around for movie effects, go to youtube and search Fuel Air Explosive and you might find some result they get.

pretty amazing what a little charge of high explosives can do to some liters of gasoline.

after that i will suggest that people stay away from high explosives, i was thinking about tinkeling with some highly sensetive stuff but i said no and continued with deflagrating materials.

but those forums and the high explosives are really interesting to read about and you learn alot from it.

Trust me, havign a beeping in your ear for three weeks and taking cortisone is not fun, that was this august, now i am buildign my first spud, what i do when pneumatics get me half killed i do not know...I guess i still have secondary explosives :D . No really i am really "falling in love" with spudding, it is like fire arms but seems safer(if it is not as strong that makes it some what safer). It requires a bit more brain power too and i should practise my phisics so Spudding is the hobby for me...

AP in pellet rounds?
Primairy explosives in launchers or guns are a big no-no.
The guy is probably just dumb and should be erhm... corrected by darwins law by now.

But how would one detonate his secondairies then?
For small detonaters, which are kept away safely from the main charge and put in on the blasting site, primairies are somewhat safe.

Well, still not safe. Just not extremely life threatening.

Well, unless another Mod or PCGUY can find a usable reason to unlock this thread, it's done.
