This section contains detailed info on making a variety of explosive/pyrotechnic devices. As I have already said, I would be making "pure" stuff like shells, but I do not have access to the materials. I make due with whatever lame and/or low-tech methods I can! Before attempting to make anything here, be sure to read the Safety section. Be safe and use common sense!
