    Classification as 1.1 means you can't store it in a type 4 magazine, and additional hassles in many states with self-transport. If your supplier will deliver, you're good to go. It's a real...

    I'd start with your state's website. Since trucking is so universal, they might have a brochure or an on-line guide that's like a "what you need to know" guide for truckers. Otherwise, you'll have...

    I believe you are correct on that. The key word is "placarded" which is what triggers the need for a CDL with HAZMAT endorsement, PHMSA and state permits, bill of lading, drug testing and truck...

    Keep in mind that states can't make the rules less restrictive than federal law, but they can add additional rules. For instance, California requires placarding for any quantity of division 1.1,1.2...

    Hmm...If the fine is only R200, I'd say run your own show. That's like $15 US Dollars, right?

    Wow, that sounds like a party! The AN used in blasting is in prills, and not a fine powder. It is considered stable when mixed into a slurry of oil, AL, and other fuels.

    There are actually a couple of different effects available. Deflagrating compounds usually contain smokeless powder, AN and sometimes other fuels. They have to be contained in the bottom of a...

    Aluminum grades?

    I need to procure about 5lbs of fine Aluminum as an additive for pyrotechnic rock breaking. The spec calls for 5-50 micron particle size. Can anyone recommend something economical?

    I see two large ads for funeral homes. Is that to remind everyone about safety?

    The three big ones are Dyno-Nobel, Austin Powder and Orica. Orica is the one I'm pretty sure sells only in kilograms. You generally buy whatever brand they have a regional distributor for in your...

    I know this is an old post, but your comment about the guy who was over on a 50lb indoor explosives magazine is interesting. A standard case of dynamite is 50lbs net explosive weight. The size of...

    If it makes you feel better, my state and local authorities bascially ask anyone doing ATF-regulated activities whether they want a driver's license for driving to work or driving to school, and for...

    My ATF investigator asked for a copy of my lease, since I do not own the property the magazines are on. I believe they are within their scope to check public ownership records or other documents to...

    It's likely that you know the state and local law better than they do. I would look up the code sections now and be ready to provide a printout or link if required.

    Keep in mind that your magazine doesn't have to be located at your residence or shop. If there is desert, farmland or other privately-owned acreage within an hour or two of you, there is probably a...

    Thanks! I take a very methodical approach to things that can kill me, and try to make it show in every aspect. The next (hopefully last) step will be a County inspection from the local Sheriff's...

    ATF inspection was today. The long and the short of it is that everything was in order and I now have numbers on those magazines. The blue envelope should be incoming. Note that this was for a...

    There are boxes specifically made to contain 100% of a blast should the material ignite. They're usually installed outside, but can be right next to the building. I'm sure variances are pretty...

    I believe that question is more aimed at blasters. If you have a blaster's license, there's a place to put the number or an "applied for" date. Agree that pretty much everyone else should put "No."

    You don't really need any sort of cup. Just hot-glue a 1" felt furniture glider to the bottom of the payload. Most flares and signals are made with stacks of wads, like old-timey shotgun shells. ...
