How to Make a Smoke Bomb

Are smoke bombs illegal?

how to make a smoke bombNo, smoke bombs are not illegal.  Much like many other things in this great country, owning smoke bombs won’t get you in trouble, but how you use them will.  For example, if you ignite a smoke bomb in a public area, causing a disturbance, you’ll more than likely catch a charge.  Long story short, don’t be an asshole.  Use these on your own property, and in a responsible manner. Military grade smoke bombs aren’t that hard to find, but can be on the pricey side.  A solution I’ve found that produces similar results is to either make them yourself or buy the Enola Gaye Smoke Grenade for $18.99 + Free Shipping.  The Enola Gaye Smoke Grenades come in seven different colors, and have a ninety second burn time.  Compared to the military grade smoke bombs that have a two minute burn time they’re not that bad.

Smoke Bomb Precautions & Guidelines

If you want to know how to make a smoke bomb the first thing you need to know is there is no ‘one way’ of making a smoke bomb, each method will produce different colors, durations, and thicknesses.  In this guide I will teach you how to make a less complex smoke bomb that will have a longer duration, thicker smoke, and different colors.  Unlike the guides you find online, we’re going to teach you how to make an effective military grade smoke bomb that is guaranteed to burn for at least two minutes!  Just like every other ballistics article we write, you will need some protective gear including; Extreme Heat Resistant EN407 Certified Gloves, and DeWalt Safety Goggles.  Your work area should be lined with old newspapers to cut down on cleanup, and you won’t want to wear anything you won’t mind parting with since the dyes will permanently stain whatever you wear.

How to a Make a Smoke Bomb

To make a smoke bomb you will need four primary ingredients and one housing element, housing element can be a Campbell’s Soup can, potassium nitrate (otherwise known as saltpeter), granulated sugar, fuse, frying pan, and aluminum foil. To make a simple smoke bomb follow these steps;

  1. Open your soup can, empty, and clean it out. Do not disregard the top.
  2. Mix together 3 parts potassium nitrate, and 2 parts granulated sugar.
  3. Bring your frying pan to a low heat and add your mixture from Step 2.
  4. Continue mixing with a plastic whisk until the powdered mixture fully liquefies.
  5. While waiting for the mixture to liquify grab your soup can top, drill five circles an 1/8th of an inch in from the edge and one in the center.
  6. Pour the mixture into the the soup can, place the top of the soup can on top of the can.
  7. Insert your fuse through the center hope until it reach the bottom, trim excess according to desired time to ignite.
  8. With the lid off allow 6-8 hours to fully harden.
  9. After the mixture has hardened put the can top back on threading the fuse through the center, and seal to the can with a 1/16th in bead of silicone.

Other Smoke Bomb Mixtures

Like I said there’s plenty of other smokebomb mixtures, but the most nasty and effective mixture includes white phosphorous, in which I will write an entire article dedicated to.  The variants of smoke bomb mixtures vary greatly such as; red smoke (potassium chorate 15%, paranitroaniline red 65%, lactoise 20%), green smoke (synthetic indigo 26%, auramine yellow 15%, potassium chlorate 35%, lactose 26%), any color smoke (potassium nitrate 6 parts, sugar 4 parts, 1 tbsp baking soda, 2 tbsps powdered dye), and many other variations.

How and why you should be a Data Prepper

Why should you be a data prepper?

In this day and age common sense isn’t so common, and unfortunately academia is plagued with propaganda causing the generations coming after ours to not be anywhere near as educated as the preceding generations.  I can’t count how many times I’ve gone to the store and gave the clerk a ten dollar bill for something that was $5.65 and he or she wasn’t able to figure out the difference after they put the wrong amount in.  My point is when the shit hits the fan, there are going to be a lot of people who are going to be royally fucked.

When the SHTF there will be an entire group of people who will not know basic math skills, how to read, biology, mechanics, or anything else for that matter.  As we all know, a dumb human is a dangerous human, and after the apocalypse…knowledge will be power.  There will be those who who will need the knowledge you have, providing you priceless bargaining power that not many others will have.

“Ignorance is the curse of God; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven.” – William Shakespeare

Not only will you be able to bargain with the knowledge you have, but should you take the humanitarian route you will have the opportunity to help rebuild a nation of lost souls.  There’s no telling how far of an extent the world will burn after doomsday, we could very well lose everything, including hundreds of years of knowledge.

How will we teach our children, rebuild the infrastructure, provide medical assistance, rebuild lost technology, and etc. without the data prepper?  Honestly, we wouldn’t be able to reacquire that knowledge without it being safely stored for quite some time..

What types of data should you store?

You obviously can’t fit an entire library or an entire electronics store in your cramped little prepper bunker, so let’s stick to the essentials, and only a couple nonessentials.  Essential types of data include primary, secondary, tertiary, vocational, and special educational books.  Non-essential data would be art, music, dance, considered nonessential because such skills don’t need to be taught.

Essential data can be stored as a hard copy or a soft copy.  While the aim here is to have essential hard copies of educational and instructional data, the reality is it has the potential to take up a lot of space.  By having soft copies of data you can reduce the amount of space your data takes up, but this does have its disadvantages which I will attempt to address.

How to Store Hard Data

Hard data or books hate heat and should be stored in a cool room with low humidity (around 35%).  Places like your attic or basement are terrible places to store your books because those are the two most likely places to bear the damage of environmental disasters i.e. flooding, tornado.  Keep them out of direct sunlight, away from heat sources and vents.  To keep you from having a million books in your garage I’ll list a few essential book sets that go over all five educational types.

  • Preschool Curriculum Set teaching cognitive development, pre-reading and numeracy skills, language acquisition.
  • Elementary Curriculum Set math, penmanship, health, spelling & vocabulary, phonics & reading
  • books that include; biology, health, algebra, physics, engineering, technology, mechanical engineering, automotive, etc
  • Tip: You can buy new or save yourself money by buying from local thrift stores and yard sales

How to Store Soft Data

While the biggest disadvantage to having soft copies of your data is the only way to access them is by using a laptop that requires power, and its susceptibility to electromagnetic pulses.  With this in mind you should store your files in an external 2tb hard drive (which can potentially hold over a million field manuals, guides, videos, and everything else you deem essential) that is accessed by a laptop, and stored in a faraday cage.  Just like books, you want to seal this up tight for when you need it, away from the elements, in a cool and dry area.

solar charger for prepper dataThe cool thing about storing soft data is you can have millions of manuals, field guides, books, and more in something that only weighs five ounces.  Not only that, but buying up a lot of books can be pretty costly while downloadable items are usually free or incredibly cheap.  You’ll just need some power, which might be in short supply, so if you do prep soft data it would be best to have your ducks in a row having alternate power sources available such as the Anker dual port portable solar charger capable of powering/charging two items at once for around $50.

Nonessential Data Prepping

Above I listed many good examples of essential data you should store, but what about nonessential data prepping?  While works of art, music, and literature may not be considered ‘logistically’ essential to survival that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t find a way to save them.  Yes human beings are capable of being artistic on their own, but I can’t imagine a world where I can’t read the works of Edgar Allen Poe, Hunter S. Thompson, Kurt Vonnegut, and Ginsberg, or where I can’t see the beautiful paintings of Picasso, Dali, and Matisse.  Can you?  With this in mind you decide if such works should be stored/saved or not.

How to Simulate Disaster

How to Simulate Disaster

By no means should you think simulating disaster will be a simple process.  Simulating disaster requires manpower and planning to truly create a dynamic disaster simulation.  Luckily for you, you’ve got Runik here to plan this out for you.  All pretentiousness aside, there are four elements any disaster simulation requires; disaster, objective, dynamic threats, and realism…

Disaster

For this simulation the disaster you will be facing is my all time favorite or at least the one I feel is most likely is dirty bombs (improvised nukes made from radioactive waste) have been detonated in every major American city.  You and your family live in the suburbs a couple miles outside the city.  I’m not going to get into the complexities of nuclear fallout since we are not referring to nuclear warheads, we’re talking about dirty bombs which will most likely not be able to enter the jetstream that exists between the troposphere and the stratosphere 23,000 – 52,000 ft above sea level, meaning the fallout shouldn’t extend beyond 10-20 miles or so…

Objective

Your mission objective is to get your wife, and kids to your bug out location located outside the hot zone which is 10-20 miles outside ground zero without getting shot, and to survive three days without food, water, power, and communication from outside sources.  By achieving your objective you will mentally and physically prepare you and your family for disaster before it happens to avoid hesitation, confusion, and shock that could possibly get you killed.

Dynamic Threats

The problem with most range training is it doesn’t truly simulate the dynamic nature of a firefight.  In this simulation you will need eight close friends and/or members of your survival group i.e. militia to assume the role of enemy combatants.  You need these dynamic threats in the simulation because they represent a prominent reality in any disaster.  When society falls, humanity becomes hard to find.  By having dynamic threats in your disaster preparedness simulation you will train your mind, and body to expect the unexpected.

Realism

Each member of the disaster preparedness simulation needs to dedicate to the role, and their individual objectives.  Why do I say this?  Each of you need to convince yourselves that this is real or else the simulation will not be truly effective.  By giving each participant an objective to aim for you simulate what real enemy combatants’ objectives would be.  Since you all have your objectives, you could make it a little interesting by wagering the simulation.  Whoever completes their objective gets a few boxes of ammo, or a case of beer.  Make it interesting guys!

Prepare the Training Simulation

Now that we have reviewed the four primary elements to the simulation we will prepare for the training simulation.  First things first, call a meeting with the simulation team at your house.  Have a BBQ and sit down with your friends and go over this disaster preparedness training simulation in its entirety.  The ideal time to perform this training exercise would be on a three day weekend such as Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  The rules are simple and are as follows..

  • all cell phones and tablets stay home
  • if at anytime the exercise needs to end due to a medical emergency use a blow horn or a whistle to alert the stagers who will communicate to other elements
  • centermass/headshots are kill shots
  • leg shots mean that person must be carried by another team member and tourniqueted
  • should any tango eliminate the target group they themselves assume the role of target group and take on their objectives

Your simulation team requires eight people who you know have basic firearms skills, and two people who will act as the simulation stagers.  The teams will be as follows…

  • Target Group – Your family or group
  • Homebase 1 – Staging element who will set the conditions to enact the disaster
  • Tango Alpha – One enemy combatant
  • Tango Bravo – Two man fireteam
  • Tango Charlie –  Four man fireteam
  • Homebase 2 – Staging element for the bug out location

To get your simulation going you’ll need to invest in a little bit of equipment.  Note, your survival group should all chip in to get the gear since you’ll be alternating roles..

Disaster Training Simulation Roles and Objectives

Homebase 1 – This staging element kicks the party off and he/she can initiate the training op at any time they like!  Your mission objective is to pick a time of the day you think the target family will be least expecting it.  To begin the simulation you will;

  • access the target home’s primary power box typically located outside the home, and turn off the power to the home.  (Note: if target box has a lock on it be sure to take the lock off a day prior to the simulation)
  • alert tangos Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, and Homebase 2 the simulation has begun via ham radio
  • 60 seconds after the power is turned off you will throw one smoke bomb in the direction of the target’s exit path (i.e. driveway)
  • 3 minutes after the first smoke bomb is thrown you will toss a second in the same direction

Target Group – As the target group you will be the only people in this simulation who are completely out of the loop.  While the threats wait outside your door, you will be completely in the dark.  The minute Homebase 1 initiates the simulation you will have to complete the following objectives;

  • at the beginning of the simulation get your group or family out of the house with all of your gear (bug out bags for each person) within 5 minutes of the power being shut off and donning PPE (personal protective equipment)
  • travel to your bug out location while fighting through three fireteams to get to your bug out location
  • reach your bug out location and secure the area
  • survive in your bug out location without food, water, power, and outside communication for three days (or whatever your schedule allows for)

Tango Alpha – You are a single enemy combatant who will be queued to engage after the second smoke bomb is deployed, and your primary objective is to commandeer the target’s vehicle by any means.  Your role is that of a neighbor who wasn’t prepared for the disaster but has no supplies or working vehicle, so your only option is to take someone else’s.  How and when you engage the target is your decision.  You can attempt to breach the home or wait for them to exit.

Tango Bravo – You are a two man fireteam whose role is two men with a broken down car a couple miles away from the bug out location.  You can use your ‘broke down’ vehicle to block the road forcing the target to slow down to go off-road and drive around the vehicle, or move the vehicle manually, at which time you can engage from any direction. Again the idea of this training simulation is to be dynamic and unpredictable!

Homebase 2 – When the target group reaches the bug out location you will wait twelve hours, at which time you will disconnect the home’s primary power (if any exists) and pop two smokes alerting the target group that the 12 hour resting period is over.  Ideally, you should have basic first aid skills in case anyone has an accident and have a first responder trauma kit on hand.

Tango Charlie – You are a four man fireteam whose role is a marauding group of bandits who are going from house to house looting supplies, and killing anyone in your way.  If the target group makes it to the bug out location they will have a 12 hour reprieve before anyone attempts to breach the bug out location. How you breach, and when you breach is completely up to you. For tips on breaching you can read how to breach a building at night.

Training Simulation Synopsis

After reading this training simulation guide you can see it’s not rocket science, and I encourage you to add your own twists and turns to further the dynamic nature of disaster preparedness.  All of you think you will survive the apocalypse when the time comes because you have fifty pounds of cheetos under your bed and get inside the rings with your super highspeed tacticool rifle.  The reality is survival is so much more than that, and threats are around every corner so I dare all of you to try and survive this simulation.

With this training exercise I’ve outlined you will face four very likely threats that you won’t be prepared for, and you will have to think dynamically to keep your group alive.  Not only will you have to fight off threats, live without power (cell, computer, microwave), but you’ll have to survive with what you were able to bring with you and nothing else.  This is what true training is, if you can’t bring yourself to even try this exercise, good luck when the shit actually hits the fan brother

Final thoughts..

Just a few safety concerns before I sign off on this article guys.  Now, I know I said ‘family’ but if you have kids under 12 years old who aren’t mature enough to handle such an exercise, for the love of god do not include them in this exercise.  Seriously, don’t be a dumbass and scare the living shit out of your kids or I’ll kick your ass myself.  As a survival group you guys should switch off roles every time you have a training simulation and it is for that reason you should split cost of equipment.

If you live in the suburbs be sure to talk to your neighbors the day before the exercise and let them know not to be alarmed and not to call the cops, just tell them it’s a family tradition or a game.  Homebase 1 and 2 should both have trauma kits on hand, should anyone get hurt the exercise is over.

Solar Flares

In this guide we will teach you how to prepare for a solar flare, or more specifically a coronal mass ejection.  With all the buzz coming out of Fox News, and the United Kingdom Cabinet Office’s Space Weather Preparedness Strategy Department we thought it’d be a good time to write an article for our readers.  Helping you understand what this means to you, if you should be genuinely concerned, and what steps you can take to prepare for such an event…

What is a Solar Flare

In case you didn’t notice it, our little blue planet is heated by our nearest star we call the Sun, which in essence is a star fueled by hydrogen gas and thermonuclear fusion creating a 14 million C° burning ball of light. Unfortunately, our beautiful burning star that keeps strippers, and Laguna beach bums looking like they were rode hard and put away wet will emit solar flares..

Solar flares are believed to occur when the Sun’s opposing magnetic fields interact adversely abruptly releasing large amounts of energy equivalent to 160,000,000,000 megatons of TNT, followed by (not always) a colossal coronal mass ejection emits clouds of electrons, ions, and atoms (radiation) almost at the speed of light through the corona of the Sun into outer space.

Are Solar Flares Dangerous

Like all potential survival threats, how you interpret solar flares and their potential effect on you is purely speculative.  For instance, if you’re in a farming area you with little to no electrical and telecom reliance you most likely won’t be directly affected. However, if you’re living in New York – you might be fucked. Now, before you get your panties in a twist, a solar flare is harmless to Earth’s living organisms because we are protected from solar flares by our magnetic field and atmosphere. So why are solar flares dangerous?

While our physical lives might not be at risk by a solar flare with a massive coronal ejection, our technology, one of the main things that keeps our society in order is very susceptible to the dangerous effects of a solar flare…

“Power outages would be accompanied by radio blackouts and satellite malfunctions; telecommunications, GPS navigation, banking and finance, and transportation would all be affected,” – NASA noted in a Press Release

You might not know, but in addition to the warnings listed in the NASA Press Release America’s power grid system is a national disaster waiting to happen.  Were a solar flare’s massive coronal ejection to point directly at the United States it would cause one of the most crippling disasters in the history of our country to include;

  • water distribution would surely be affected
  • perishable foods and medications would be lost within 12-24 hours
  • heating and air conditioning would be non existent
  • cell towers along with land lines would be disabled
  • fuel shortages
  • loss in power

What will happen if a Solar Flare happens in America

Chaos brother, unbelievable amounts of chaos will ensue.  Should we be hit so hard as to take out all the everyday necessities listed above this country will eat itself alive, just like it has time after time when disaster strikes. Let’s face it guys, the America of today is populated by some really selfish, ignorant, and truly immoral people who are just waiting for our great country to fall.  Unfortunately there are several possible scenarios that will follow such a massive coronal ejection;

  • looting
  • rioting
  • murder
  • mayhem
  • assaults
  • martial law

Should I Prepare for a Solar Flare

Luckily, if you’re an avid prepper you most likely have most the tools needed to be prepped for such an event, and if you haven’t maybe you should.  However, this survival threat ranks about a 6 on the threat gauge mainly because we have gone from only 60 minutes of preparation time to 12 hours, allowing energy and utility companies to downgrade services and prepare for the disruption.  However, if a big enough one hits, no amount of warning will matter.

How do I prepare for a Solar Flare

Believe it or not we wrote something more detail oriented, and would better prepare you to deal with such an event in our article ‘How to prepare for an EMP’, but we’ll still go over a few basic precautions you and your family can take;

Martial Law Survival

Martial Law Survival Guide

In this Martial Law Survival Guide I am going to skim over several issues facing American Preppers and Civilian Personnel.  Now let me say this… I’ve seen some of these other Prepper Websites’ conceptual ideas of how to survive martial law, and I’ve never seen such irresponsibility in my life.  Not only do they tell you to stock up on guns, ammo, and all the other prepper niceties that will get your ass sacked up upon inspection, but they also advise you to shelter in place!  In response, we will tell you how to not only survive martial law, but to conquer it.

Is Martial Law a Real Possibility?

With all the buzz over Jade Helm 15, the UN coming to seize your weapons, DHS stocking up on ammo and MRAPs, and the Constitution being raped every single day, it’s not too hard to see why people are starting to get hyper-spastic about it.  I mean have you seen Alex Jones in a frenzy?  It’s quite moving but essentially its fear tactics to get us to buy his ‘Secret 12 Formula’ which is nothing more than a crazy dose of B12.  It’s capitalism, so I can’t complain.

Now, one of the problems I have with a specific article says to listen to ‘Rumors or predictions from experts may alert you to impending martial law’, which is a really bad thing to tell people.  Come on, man.  you’re going to send 75% of the prepper community running to the mountains every two weeks!  No, seriously, every two weeks there’s a litany of articles with predictions and rumors telling us ‘Tomorrow, martial law comes!’.  Tomorrow comes, nothing is different aside from an increase in ammunition sales, and it’s been this way for years now.

The Reality of Martial Law

Martial Law is always a possibility in any major metropolitan area, but it won’t go down the way everyone thinks it will.  Don’t listen for rumors my friends, listen for bombs.  There is only one way you can bring this entire nation under martial law, and that is under the guise of a simultaneous multistate terrorist attack.  Think Boston Bombings, and the following result immediately after detonation, there was a two hour window before martial law went into full swing.  Now, think if that were to happen nationally.

People also like to believe our Army would never do that, but sadly, high ranking military personnel, along with OathKeepers are being purged, being replaced by younger, more impressionable soldiers.  You know, Gen Y – it’s unsettling to say the least.  Not only that, but the military has been training for counter-insurgency for decades now. ..

Surviving Martial Law

I hate dubbing this article ‘Martial Law Survival Guide’, because to simply survive all you have to do is submit to the boot of tyranny.  Don’t have any guns or ammunition hidden, because if you’re found with it, you’re getting sacked up.  Just sit there like the nutless wonder you are and let them do what they’re going to do, and hopefully you won’t end up in Hotel Auschwitz..

However, our readers aren’t about that life. Our readers don’t want to survive, they want to be free, and that is what my martial law survival guide is about, restoring freedom, and in reality you’re going to need all the skills we teach here to overcome such a force, so I’m going to highlight the most important elements…

Conditioning for Martial Law

I cannot stress this enough, don’t scare the living shit out of your children! That being said, you and your family need to be conditioned to survive and overcome martial law.  This isn’t as complex as it sounds.  To condition yourselves for martial law without giving your kids a new phobia to worry about, simply turn your conditioning events into family outings. It’s simple, instead of staying home on the weekends, start camping out!

  • Make a game out of how fast can you get the truck loaded to simulate bugging out.
  • Find a nice remote area to camp, and see who can do the best job getting their tent up and hidden with foliage the fastest.
  • Teach your family firearms safety, and marksmenship.
  • Play wargames with airsoft.
  • Fish, hunt, and teach your family how to live off the land!

OPSEC

OPSEC or Operation Security means stop blabbing about how Billy Bad Ass you are with your high-speed rifle, and totally bitching vest!  People are putting their own security at risk by posting online about their guns, preps, and beliefs.  Not only are your friends seeing this but so is the government, painting a big red target on you.  We wrote an extensive article on OPSEC called OPSEC for Preppers, I suggest you read it and get informed.

.When it comes down to martial law, there will undoubtedly be more traitors than we can count.  Hell, they’re already here!  Once the SHTF these folks will do anything to stay alive, which includes ratting you out.  Be wary of any members of your group that are gone for long periods of time.  Torture has a way of turning your most closest allies into your undoing.

Cache Stockpiling

Never put your eggs in one basket.  Stock food, water, ammunition, and whatever you like in various locations, your AO (area of operations). If you’re a city dweller and don’t want to lug a ton of munitions when a speedy bug out is needed, this is an ideal technique to use. Simply bury your cache, record the coordinates, and return on your way out of town.  Even if you live in a rural area, it’s a good idea to use caches in the event your home is raided, and you had to leave in a hurry.  Caches will allow you to resupply!

Bugging In

This is only for people who live in rural areas. After the cities are taken down trust me when I say they will expand their area of operations and they will make it to your homes.  If an insurgency has already began they will look for conspirators, and those who support resistance elements.  If your goal is to be an active element in the resistance, you should be stockpiling food, water, and munitions right outside your property line.

You can still stock up on food, water, and munitions in your home.  Luckily, you’re in a rural area and they most likely won’t get to you for a minute so you have time to stow away what you need to.

Bugging Out

If you are in a metropolitan area (Nashville, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, etc) I am not big enough a dumbass to tell you to shelter in place under any circumstances.  The minute you hear bombs, or see bombs going off on the news, you have around an hour or less to get the hell out of dodge before mobilization of military personnel is full swing.

In counter-insurgency ops where metropolitan areas are the initial target, FOBs will be setup on the outskirts of those towns and perimeters will be formed. All roads leading in and leading out will be blocked and CPs (check points) will go up in the blink of an eye.  This means your exit will have to be fast. We’ve already written articles to get you ready for this moment, so invest some time and read up;

Now that you’re ready for the SHTF, you can bug out!  Does this mean go to grandmother’s house over the hill and through the woods?  Pick grandma up and STAY OFF GRID.  Armies can often be inefficient, mostly due to bureaucratic oversight, so let’s hope that inefficiency continues in this instance.

Over two-hundred American cities have at least 100k-500k people living in them.  The American military has about 1.3 million active duty personnel, with another 800k in the reserves.   This means out of 300 cities less than a third can be effectively occupied (even with LEO assistance), unless foreign armies join the fight. Otherwise, we got this.

Tannerite at home

How to make tannerite at home

The mixture itself is simple

For example: 100g AN mixed with 5g AL

  1. 95% Ammonium Nitrate [See pricing.] 50lb bags marked 34-0-0. Please note: the supply of ammonium nitrate is getting slim, this product is in crystal form and will have to be made into a fine powder. 
  2. Use blender to ground to the consistency of salt granules.
  3. Mix in well ventilated area with no open flames.
  4. Ignition Point 840 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Store in sealed container after grounded.
  6. After storage – If clumping occurs break the clumps apart and ground.
  1. 5% Aluminum Powder [See pricing.] 300-600 mesh.
  2. Use different blender to avoid contamination.
  3. Blend into fine powder.
  4. Mix in well ventilated area with no open flames.
  5. Store in sealed container after grounded.
  6. After storage – If clumping occurs break the clumps apart and ground.

How to make tannerite – The mix AN/AL

Pour the amounts into the container and shake them up until they are mixed together mixed accordingly to their weight 95/5 in any desired amount. Remember once you mix them together you must use them at the site. You cannot drive or store the stuff mixed together. Totally legal according to federal law.

A Federal explosives license or permit would be required to obtain any explosive device, such as detonators, used to initiate the mixed binary explosives. In addition, transportation of any explosive material, including mixed binary explosives, without a Federal license or permit is prohibited. [27 CFR 555.11: Definition of “manufacturer”; 27 CFR 555.26, 555.41(b)] Again do not drive with these compounds mixed.
