12th Century Illustration of 1st Century Greek Fire.
There is an equally long record of unfortunate fools who lost limbs & various other useful bits & pieces - and many others who rapidly drained their various body fluids & plasma and ceased breathing when energetically disassembled .. both long ago and more recently.***
You'll find plenty of video demonstrating how Tannerite or other home-made mixes can entertain and titillate .. but most of the unfortunate departed failed to post their images on-line.
Both Tannerite and the simpler 'Ammonal' are used on ranges to indicate a 'HIT' on target by going BANG. - both compounds consist of two or more NON-explosive chemicals (fuel and oxidizer) that - when mixed will detonate if impacted by a high velocity bullet .. A low-velocity pistol round won't do it.
"that's what I'm talking about"😼
It is generally suggested that you limit your mix to less than two pounds (1 kg.) - but there's always those dense nutters who can't/won't read the boring stuff.
It's an interesting FACT that exactly half of the population has below average IQ. (- this does tend to influence the quality of government etc.)
Our governments like to think they have exclusive rights to use this energetic stuff - like cluster bombs, fuel-air explosives, anti-personnel mines, nukes & missiles, and even 'guns' in many cases.
Maybe I'm being a bit girly here - but I'm not going to list the chemicals needed. - There are plenty of on-line sites and video detailing all that for your delectation.
- My strongest possible advice is to use passive high visibility 'Splatter' targets and a pair of binoculars or a spotting scope.
Sure these paper targets are costly to buy .. but they are much quieter when used with a silencer & cheaper than setting-off a wild fire - getting arrested - or blowing-up one of your mates with home-made pyrotechnics.
*** On May 21 1946 - US nuclear physicist Louis Alexander Slotin was demonstrating how clever he was - playing with two hemispheres of plutonium 'fissile material' held apart with a screwdriver blade - when he fumbled and produced an instant super-critical mass .. the bright blue flash made him twist his wrist - and he managed to throw the top plutonium 'shell' onto the floor - thus preventing this being a massive deadly nuclear explosion at Los Alamos .. but he died nine days later from that half-second burst of radiation. - Remember that he was playing about with this nuclear material only a short time after they thought it possible that these bombs might cause the whole atmosphere to ignite and burn.

We do need to have total trust in our Governments, Leaders & Military .. they always have our best interests at heart.😁
P.S. Should you be in a 'researching mood' with a cup of decent coffee - have a Google-Wikipedia session starting with Greek Fire .. Naphtha .. Napalm.
