How to Make Black Powder

(1/2) > >>

Black powder is a simple mixture of powdered potassium nitrate or saltpeter, charcoal and sulfur. But simply mixing the ingredients together is not going to give you the results you are looking for. Follow these instructions on making black powder--just be careful as you are working with explosives. Whether your motivation is to save a little bit of money or the satisfaction of being able to make your own, you can certainly make your own black powder at home.

Cool!  I have a bunch of potassium nitrate pellets left over from a stump removal project that I abandoned a while back.

Step one, make sure insurance (take your pick) is paid up.
Step two gather ingredients....

Step 3: remember the rule of 50...every 50 mg = 1 finger than can be blown off.

Just because you CAN legally do it doesn't mean it's a good idea.

Step 4: Find some bamboo, diamonds, your best Starfleet Captain's uniform, and shoot a Gorn.

Oh, come on... Somebody has to know what I'm talking about right!? This is still the internet after all.. ;D
