What's the deal? I almost always see nothing but negativity thrown at everyone but the regulars here.
If I had intended to use my flash powder for a bad idea
, I would have asked there. I was trying to get a discussion started. About pyrotechnics. Go figure I thought it belonged here.
Totse's BB was pretty snooty, but you are downright on the level of douchebag.
@Archetype: That link is amazing. Thank you very much!
The oxidizer the book uses as its standard in the instructions is Potassium Perchlorate. Is that acceptably insensitive for a hobbyist? I've read that it's a bit unstable, which is really why I started this thread to begin with.
Anything I should know/worry about?
Also, is barium nitrate necessary? I don't know if it somehow helps the stability of the comp, but I would like to stick with a single oxidizer. Though, keeping things simple is good, but not if it means the difference of some obscure reaction taking my fingers from me.
