This started on the "firearms" forum..  I like the smell of IMR over HODGON.

 Well if your favorite powder could smell like anything, what would it be.??  In between shoot outs, I drag race.. You ever smell the perfumes they put in race fuel.?  Some smell like "bubble-gum", cherry and so-on..

     I think I would like my muzzle blast to smell like my favorite BBQ sauce.. how about yours.??  

 

 

      Could ya make money on this, "flavored gunpowder".   Hmmmmmmm

Now that alliant is publishing the ingrediant on the label it would be nice to get all manufa. to do this. It would then be possible to isolate the smells based on the chemical moieties of the causitive agent. Then the SAR's (structure activity relationships) of the groups could be classifed  per organic group ex. esters-bananas , then the basic inhibitors used such as phenylanaline and the amines could be modified per customer request for the fragrance they wanted. Of course requests for such things as female sex pheneromes would have to be ignored.

If i could choose to have gun powder smell like anything i would go with (honey suckles) this brings back memories of me and grandfather hunting.So it would almost like he would be there.well he wouldn't be telling me to get up off the ground and saying watch where your steping you sound like a tank running thru the woods.My feet would ctach every root,rock, or anything else that we walked over.

Maybe we could get the major powder manufacturers to provide a "scratch n sniff" patch on the side of the jug........

 

You guys are nutty!!!

That is a great idea, Mark. An extra special scratch and sniff would be Goex FFF. It smells like butt. An odor easily created in the lab.

Too bad, depending on how you dispensed the gun powder could probably relieve the headache or any other pain immediately.

yes they did....taste late night snack.

 

I'm sure gun powder would be great for headaches but i think i'll stick to goodies.

 

I know there is a few uses for gun powder i seen rambo use it like stiches so there has got to be something to it.

Nothing like a cold winter morning and sighting in your rifle for the first hunt of the season. As you walk towards your target for a looksee the waft of burnt nitrocellulose gets the adrenalin going!!
