    I want to get some of this to try out. Looks like it could be fun to play with, its a non explosive demolition tool. A powder that has incredible expansive properties when mixed with water.

    EDIT: Here's a link to the company's page, not sure what happened to the other link...

    I know you're referring to traditional gunpowder when you say "explosive," but couldn't a definition of explosive apply to this powder as well (considering it expands rather explosively)?

    Yes, I was going with the "Big Bang" type of explosive, with restricted sales, and all that ensues, and I'm sure you are correct in that the technical description of this probably is an explosive. This product appears to be available with no restrictions. A little pricey to try out, but it still could be fun.

    No restrictions, you say? Sounds like a blast.

    @ Lazarus99 --
    At least until someone uses it to make late night withdrawals from banks and stores. You may not have to register to buy it, but it's probably unique enough it wouldn't take long to find the culprit.

    I'm sorry, but it just burst out of me. I couldn't help it.
