About Tannerite Sports, LLC


At a young age, Daniel Tanner’s interest and fascination with special effects were fostered by his grandfather in his workshop. After many years of encouragement when Dan turned 21 and was granted an ATF federal license, he began earnestly experimenting to create safe binary exploding rifle targets. He successfully formulated Tannerite®  brand binary exploding rifle targets in 1996 and obtained design and utility patents.

You should always check and follow all state, county, and/or local laws and regulations for any applicable permit or license requirements, or other potential restrictions and conditions in your area, for possession and use of Tannerite® brand targets in unmixed and mixed forms.  Tannerite®   makes the safest and most stable binary exploding targets on the market. To achieve this level of quality, all targets are made in the U.S.A. with the finest materials available.

The Use

Tannerite ® brand targets were specifically designed to be safe and non-flammable, whether it’s sitting on a shelf, being mixed or used. When shot with a high-power rifle it produces a water vapor and a thunderous boom resembling an explosion.
