    Tannerite + .22LR + peanut butter / endless chipmunk population

    Not saying I've done it, just saying I've got the materials and a severe hatred for these little critters as they burrow under my retaining wall. Let's be honest, they're just rats with good PR.

    I dont beleive that the .22 will set off Tannerite. The instructions say that it must be a higher powered round.

    Dang you hotguns-- why rain on my parade?!?
    Yeah, I know you need a pretty hot round. A 5.56 will get it going though.
    But, a guy can dream, can't he?

    They make a target for rimfire ammo. I used to think the little rats were cute until I saw them sitting under my tomato plants eating ripe tomatoes. To quote the immortal Bugs Bunny "Of course you know this means war!"

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Just picked up some .22 shorts today and sent them through my old 1890 Winchester pump .22LR. Yeah it's original, and yeah it can drive tacks even with a short. It's not even as loud as my .177 Gamo air rifle. Think it'll me my gun of choice now to end Alvin and his brothers.

    No rain...I just didnt want you to shoot and miss an oportunity.

    Any other caliber will work.
    If ya get bored, watch some You Tube videos of coyotes coming to bait getting dispatched with Tannerite. It does the job rather well...

    That was the same "medicine" applied to get rid of bunnies eating my mom's prized iris when I was a kid. The 1890 was chambered for .22 Long, but I could single-feed Short HPs and have a quiet and effective pest-control solution.

    In more recent times, an air rifle was a more appropriate solution for me in suburbia. Check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cw3AY28S8gU

    Yep, a .22 will set off the small charges. They are about the size of a half dollar and maybe 3/4 inches thick. Any of the large ones require a higher velocity round.

    Never used them for varmit control, but the 1 lb ones make nice match sticks out of old chest of drawers.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Seems like shooting at Tannerite by your retaining walls to kill squirrels that are destroying your retaining wall may be burning down the house to kill the cockroaches, but I certainly sympathize...

    Will 17 HMR set off Tannerite?
