    How expensive is C4? How hard is it to get? What is it made of? How powerful is it, and is it overrated?

    If it is overrated, what is even better? How illegal is it?

    I'm just curious, nothing more. No buildings to blow up in my agenda.....

    Very illegal, military and demolitions use only. Very difficult to make. Better, is relative, depends on what you are trying to do.

    Very very illegal. It's fucking powerful. Bottom line is: don't even try to make it. As a matter of fact, don't even think about it. Stick to fireworks :)

    Fairly to very expensive. Very hard to near impossible to get unless you're in demolitions (military, police, or commericial). Not saying what goes into it, but if you had half a brain and $50 you could turn your car into very tiny pieces.

    C4 is a very powerful explosive, but it's biggest plus is that it's extremely stable and safe to handle. And yes, it's obviously very illegal to have laying around.

    You can easily make a "plastic explosive" from household materials that would be stable, shapable, and rather powerful. Not as good as commercial c4, but pretty good.

    Best though, don't think about it. A wee bit dangerous.

    Anyone have pictures or videos of actual C4? How about videos of it being used?

    I want this to be the biggest and best C4 thread in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD (spreading arms out)

    you can find most of the ingredients needed to make real C4 around your house but one ingredient is very hard to find. Ingredients can be stuff like high nitrogen fertilizer and gasoline along with the hard to find ingredient.

    Dynamite has this ingredient. i cant think of the exact name but its a very unstable liquid. Dynamite, over time, will "sweat" this stuff and will cause the dynamite to go off. pretty powerful stuff.

    That would be nitroglycerin. :ugh:

    I want a chunk of C4, just so I can light it and use it as a cigar lighter. :rofl:

    i do plenty of work with explosives, and i love C4, its quick to set up, and its great for steel cutting, which makes it ideal when i have to bring a bridge down. I also stick some on the bottom of my canteen cup and light it to heat up a meal every now and then

    c4 is made of RDX inside a plastic compound. You can make it out of nitric acid, potassium chlorate which is extracted from bleach, and other things. I do not need to go into details. But yea, c4 is cool

    Nitroglycerin pills are, in fact, actual nitroglycerin. Don't hit them with a hammer. But the chemical does have medicinal qualities as well as explosive ones. ;)














    I hope you see waht I did there
