Tannerite Sports, LLC Comments on Bombings in New York City & New Jersey


Pleasant Hill, OR – -(Ammoland.com)-Tannerite Sports, like most, is now aware of the tragic events that took place in New York City and New Jersey on Saturday, September 17, 2016.

The entire staff of Tannerite stands together in the abhorrence and unintended use of all products that are misused for violence and hate.

Our prayers and thoughts go out to the individuals and families who are victims in these acts. We further stand by ready to assist law enforcement in any manner needed to bring those to justice that are responsible for these acts.

Tannerite’s corporate investigator has been working to determine if, indeed, our product was factually and positively identified in connection with these acts of violence.

At this time, we are unable to validate these allegations due to it being an ongoing investigation.

ABOUT Tannerite
Tannerite brand targets employ a binary explosive used as a shot indicator for long-range firearms practice and training. Tannerite brand target detonations occur at a very high velocity, producing a large explosion and a cloud of water vapor. Small caliber rim-fire or slow moving pistol ammunition will not initiate a detonation.

In use, a long-range rifle shooter places Tannerite targets downrange, retreats to his firing position, and fires. The shooter does not have to walk down range to see if the target has been hit, as the Tannerite will detonate and serve as an indicator.

Since the two components that make up Tannerite targets are not explosive until mixed, they can legally be purchased in the USA without a license. Tannerite targets are exceptionally stable when subjected to less severe forces such as a hammer blow or being dropped and they cannot be initiated by any kind of flame or electricity.

Tannerite is the registered trademark for Tannerite brand targets and binary exploding rifle targets are a patented invention by Daniel J. Tanner. www.tannerite.com

The loudest click , when the cops disabled your firearm coming to your house and the bad guy is in your sight.


My guns are “smart”, if I give them the correct ammunition they know what to do with it when i pull the trigger and they are smart enough to stop when I release the trigger. I think that is as smart as a gun needs to be, how about you folks?


I guess by the “ban” logic then pressure cookers are next because I’ve never seen or heard of them being used for anything except making bombs. We now have the technological advantage of microwaves. We shouldn’t be able to buy a pressure cooker bomb at any hardware store or home depot (/sarc).


No, oh no, you can’t cook squirrel stew quickly in a microwave but it sure does cut down the time in a pressure cooker. Likewise with corn on the cob!


mmmm…. Now I’m hungry, looks like I’m havin’ squirrel stew w/ corn on the cob tonight!!! 😀 In case others didn’t notice, my sarcasm was directed as calls for using “Smart Guns” (technology) in place of traditional guns and the current mentality of Banning Everything that gets misused. Obviously, a microwave isn’t good for everything, but they can be effective in specific cases; much like Smart guns. However, they can never replace our traditional, time-tested methods such as pressure cookers and cast iron skillets. Same goes for tannerite; It’s serves well for it’s intended purpose, like a pressure cooker. When… Read more »


We only disagree on one point, smart guns. With companies like TrackingPoint, that patented smart gun technology with a remote trigger disable device for police to be able to use, I want no part of it. Smart gun technology is what’s between your ears. Now, how are you fixing that stew? 🙂


I guess I wasn’t very clear on the smart guns remark I made. I agree with you. In the real world, there is no room or reason for smart guns. They may be OK for people who would otherwise not have guns in a home with small children and therefore feel some added sense of security by both having a “Gun” and the fact that their kids can’t accidentally shoot it. In my house the security/peace of mind I have is that my kids were taught and know not to touch the guns unless I hand it to them. Plus… Read more »


This is another company that the bamba boy will go after, he/it will say that this stuff needs to go away because it is used by terrorists only and that it hard no practical use, just watch. I have used Tannerite myself great thing to have around if you are a long range type of person. The really neat thing about Tannerite you can drop it and nothing will happen you can throw and little to nothing it takes a high velocity hit to make it go off. If used the right way it is very much safe, if a… Read more »


Automobiles are used by terrorists too. Anyone for banning them? How about alcohol, oops, we tried that once and it didn’t work out all that well.What next from the Ban It types?
