    Click the link, love the link.

    I'd like to make a couple of these, but I have no where to set them off.
    Nice find.

    After screwing with the idea for about 30 seconds (about the time I realized I didnt have a frikkin paper clip) I cut off the striker on my matchbox, folded it in half (strike-side-in) and stuck two matches in the fold. (match head against striker surface) and lightly secured with electrical tape. I gave it a quick pull, and poof. burnt myself.

    Do what works lol. I'm pretty bad with written instructions.
    This is the way the world ends.. Not with a bang, but a whimper.

    Any piece of metal that bends, and is kind of stiff would work for a pull ring. So thick floral wire would work great.

    I'm not that great with written instructions, I have to have some kind of image to base what I'm doing on. Only way if I know I'm doing it right lol.
    Its dangerous to be right, when the government is wrong.

    Ok, so I've checked with the local co-ops, plant nursuries, Lowes, H.D. and Tractor Supply, cant find any salt peter anywhere. Is this crap legal to purchase? Where the heck can i find it?

    A pharmacy will have it. You'll need to ask for it. Its a natural supplement along with additive in corned beef. Legal to purchase. If you get no where with salt peter ask for potassium nitrate. If asked why say you're making corned beef. Its also found in stump remover but concentration may vary.

    Try this site. They sell chemicals and kits for smoke, both wite and various colors, pull string igniters and thermite fire starters. The smoke should give you a better result and greater volume plus these should give you better and safer results than you-tube video instructions.

    An empty gun is like a pretty girl. Nice to look at, but more fun when they're loaded.

    Don't forget that the potassium nitrate is hydroscopic. It will suck up moisture out of the air and it will go bad in a few weeks. you may want to put a couple in mylar.
    If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger hammer....
