At least he did not kill someone else like the guy in OK. Blew up a stove and killed his 8 year old cousin. Tannerite is meant as a reactive target. More tannerite equals more reactive which is where the problems start.

He can still buy guns, ammo and Tannerite and possibly breed. Not the end of this story.

Wonder if he's going to sue the mower company because there isn't a warning label that this could happen.

When he started getting closer I knew he was in danger. The guys that blow up large quantities of it do it from long range. The one guy I see doing it the most does it with a .50 cal at a half mile range.

Maybe he can get a job as a peg leg pirate in Johnny Depp's next movie.

I don't hear anyone weeping for the poor innocent mower? Where is the P.E.T.M. People for the Ethical Treatment of Mowers .

43'! He's lucky he's alive.I had 6 sticks of dynamite in a stump go off at around 60 yards when the battery pack fell from another stump 100 yards away and contacted the wire that wasn't screwed on, to the other post. I saw it when my boss tripped on the wire and I hit the ground on my belly and covered my head. I was 17 and have had mild hearing loss and ringing in my left ear since, I'm 63 now. The shock wave was strong, but mostly above me. It was just dumb luck, bad luck at that, that the damn wire made contact when it fell from the stump, and we discovered that 300' wasn't going to be far enough! We had tried 3 sticks before that and didn't budge it, we soon found out that double the boom was way over kill. The larger part of the stump went many feet into the air, traveled horizontally at least 60-70 yards and went right through the roof of an old black couples outhouse and virtually destroyed it. Thankfully nobody was in there doing business. That was Friday, we spent our Saturday and Sunday building a shithouse! Explosives are not toys!

It still amazes me that it is still a legal product. With the power that it has.

No, thankfully. We laughed about later, but there was a major pucker factor at the time!

I have done some pretty stupid things in the past and have just been lucky for the most part.This is something I probably would have done when I was younger knowing the danger but wagering that I would not get bit.To me smoking is bad knowing fully well that you will likely cough and hack day and night if you live long enough and might die an agonizing death.

It is pretty inert till you shoot at it. No matter what is available some idiot will find a way to hurt himself with it.
