‘Northern’ North Americans Readying for Better Shooting
Canadian Chief Inspector of Explosives approves TANNERITE® Brand Binary Exploding Targets

Pleasant Hill, OR (May 12, 2014) – TANNERITE® Sports, LLC is proud to announce that the sale and transport of TANNERITE® Brand Binary Rifle Targets has been authorized by the Canadian Explosives Safety and Security Branch (ESSB).

Under the Canadian Explosives Act, it is authoritatively lawful to sell and transport TANNERITE® Brand Binary Rifle Targets weighing one-pound or less. To the Canadian rifleman, that means you can store unmixed, and shoot mixed, 1-pound, ½-pound and ¼-pound TANNERITE® Brand Binary Rifle Targets.

TANNERITE® Sports President Dan Tanner speaks to the landmark authorization. “We’ve always known that TANNERITE® Brand Binary Rifle Targets are completely safe when used in accordance with safety instructions. And now, the Canadian government has acknowledged that as well.

“Canadian riflemen and recreational shooters are the real winners here.”

Tanner, points out, too, that the ESSB authorization applies specifically to TANNERITE® Brand Binary Rifle Targets, not exploding targets as a universal category. “Our patented, stable formula will not cause fires, and that claim cannot be made by competitors. The ESSB recognizes that, and we’re grateful.”

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 patented.
