Re: 4th of July Rocks

Carbon, Niter, Sulpher are the common ingredients. The uncommon and most required ingredient is common sense and safety. If u have the latter u will not make black powder at all. As a teenager a good friend of mine had his hand blown off making black powder when all he did was pour it into a tube. The static set off the charge and the rest is a tragedy. Do yourself and your friends service and don't make any at all. By the way the government forbids the unlicenced manufacture of ANY explosives so there are also the legal implications. Be smart stay safe and in one piece!
