    You have to be a grumpy old geaser to recognise the smell of cordite compared to today's gun powders. You can still find old ammunition around that used cordite. Has to be pretty old and have a corrosive primer for it to still be able to be used in a firearm.

    Yeah that is odd. He may have been mistaken tho, or it could have been used as an igniter for a more prosaic explosive mixture.

    I'm with you on that. Looks like a lot of jaw flapping without any content for the time being. Events are still unfolding, so it's probably best to wait and see.

    True. With Columbine they tried to use a variety of bombs. Iirc their fertilizer bombs weren't of the correct mixture and the fuses on their propane bombs completely failed.

    Yeah, it's hard to say. They were trash cans, too, so who knows what else may have been in them besides explosives to add to the smell.
