How much Tannerite should my friend and I use to get rid of this creepy-as-fuck mannequin head?

I should explain

Friend and fellow ARFcommer Sonoran_TJ and I came across this thing at Redington Pass in Tucson quite some time ago. We had taken a TV out there for death by firing squad, and while cleaning up our mess, we took it upon ourselves clear out some of the other crap that people had left behind.

We found this fine young lady hanging out down-range, and while we had no intention of keeping it at first, we discovered it really freaked out someone we were shooting with so we kept it just to play pranks on her.

That was at least 3 years ago and I'm tired of having a head, in a plastic bag, in my closet. (I just graduated college, this thing would have been gone a while ago but I've been busy and just sort of forgot about it)

Head is imaged below. All suggestions welcome

5 gallons should do it

Is it hollow? Fill it to the brim if it is.

As much as you can afford?

I can't think of a situation where this isn't the correct answer to that question.

Yes it is hollow. Should have mentioned that.

Looks to me like you could pack in about a cubic head of tannerite in there.

We did that.

One of the other items we found while we were cleaning up was an old printer, and the TV we shot up was an old CRT. Both caught bullets pretty well.

We decided it was a good idea to melt down the lead and pour it on the eye. We probably looked like really inexperienced heroin addicts melting bullets in a spoon on my friends electric stove.

I just like that you literally have a medusa head in a bag.
Link Posted: 12/22/2013 12:38:14 PM EST
If the head is hollow, then the answer is "as much as it will hold"
This is ARFCOM, not rocket science
Link Posted: 12/22/2013 12:38:39 PM EST
I personally wouldn't use more than half a pound on that... itd be a waste. save the big shit for lots of tannerite!

Keep it off of rocks. Make sure you aren't near neighbors and don't put it on YouTube. Atf and fbi have been after this lately and everyone hurting themselves and scaring neighbors is not helping any of us out.
Link Posted: 12/22/2013 1:02:48 PM EST
It depends. How close ya gonna stand?

Seriously, having seen half a pound of T pretty much destroy an microwave, I don't think you need that much.
Link Posted: 12/22/2013 3:38:47 PM EST
Say we use half a pound, how far away is considered safe? Should we remove the lead bit from her eye- I'm worried it will become shrapnel.

We are planning on setting it on a stake so it is removed from rocks to minimize frag.


Why not post it on youtube? What is concerning the ATF and FBI? I don't want to end up in jail over this



I think we could cram 2-3lbs of tannerite into the head cavity

A half pound would be more than sufficient, but nothing exceeds like excess! I say pack that demon skull full.

It sounds like you have a good place to do this, no one nearby to complain or anything, correct? So pack it full and set up other shit around it.

And yeah, shoot it from 100 yards or more if you can. Tannerite isn't high explosives but it blows up real good!

And it's perfectly legal to use Tannerite. There won't be any issues with any agencies as long as you don't destroy someone's property.

Do it. Do it for the children.

People are setting off a few pounds in neighborhoods and scaring older people abd garnering a lot of police calls, and fbi releases a report on how it could it be used in terrorist attacks, and atf has been asked to weigh in a few times on it's legality after states like Maryland adding phrases like easily mixed into the old explosive laws. With the gun community under so much fire it just seems good to draw less attention to yourself. And I would say if you go for a few pounds to opt for around a hundred plus yards. I did 2 lbs on a log few years back and was about 25 yards out and caught a pretty fast moving piece of bark to the face.

The more tightly packed it is, the less of it that will actually detonate.

Whatever you do, don't compress it or pack it in there. You'll just be wasting a bunch.

A pound will blow the ever living fuck out of it quite impressively.


Personally, I've found you get significant diminishing returns much larger than 12 to 16 ounce plastic bottle's-worth.
Link Posted: 12/22/2013 3:53:04 PM EST
I'm not sure where we are going to blow it up yet. Its southern AZ so we have a lot of BLM land to choose from, but I also don't want to start a forest fire. Some exploring will be done.

Yeah. Good point.

If you start a forest fire then Smoky Bear will beat the hell out of you with a shovel

GREAT QUESTION!
Link Posted: 12/23/2013 1:30:13 PM EST
The mouth won't open. I guess we could cut a hole there.

How must tannerite be contained when we shoot it? The containers it came in won't fit in the head. Can we pour it in ziploc bags and pack those into the head?

A half pound is sufficient to destroy a mannequin head.

what ever you do don't use 51 pounds

100 lbs should do it.

You will have to find somewhere other than Redington to shoot it.

Sell it on the EE, likely a bidding war.

Yup, I do that and tape it to the back side of things, but just fill it with bags and you're good to go.

ETA: And if you want to blow up a hay bale, it takes at least 20lbs

It's in 3 plastic bags in my closet. It's could only be creepier if it was in my freezer.

Thats about as creepy as this. Found it hanging in a gate in an area I hunt

1 lb is more than enough. Doesn't need to be in the container it came in, but I would keep it in some sort of container, ie water bottle ect.

The stuff is reasonably powerful, a 1lb container placed into an 8"x8" cinder block will make it disappear.

Be safe.

You ever considered taking that thing around town to different places and taking pics? Like Flat Stanley or whatever that thing's called?

Anyway, blow that thing up real good and I'll be asking you to log out and back in.
