As Usual , Government Offering Solutions To Non-Existent Problems

 ” It’s pretty cool, but not mind-blowing. In fact, Tannerite being hard to detonate is precisely why it is used as a shooting target. Even when it’s mixed, it’s not very inclined to go off. You have to use a high-energy impact to start the explosion, such as a bullet traveling at supersonic speeds, or another explosion, like one generated by a blasting cap. So even if Tannerite itself isn’t regulated, the means to detonate it are.
Tannerite’s record for being used maliciously and causing injury is practically non-existent. There are far more abused materials, like gasoline, that they are not calling to be regulated. Not that it is completely safe and that there are no risks, but if you’re at a live fire range, there are definitely more important things to be mindful of.

Of course we still urge all shooters to be careful with the stuff, whether you’re shooting half a pound of it or 50. And as always when working with something that’s explosive, don’t use it if you can’t control any potential fire. We don’t want shooting to lead to wildfire. But worry more about that guy who keeps muzzling everyone around him while he’s got his finger clearly inside the trigger guard. “
