Default Re: Strike anywhere kitchen matches, banned?

IIRC, there used to be a tool that you could buy that would make the "shell" of a percussion cap from old aluminum cans, and you would use the stuff on the end of the strike anywhere matches as the ignition chemical in the cap.

Some of the percussion firearms guys like to be as self-sufficient as possible, even to the extent of making their own black powder. (Perhaps a lesson to be learned there for all of us, considering what's coming.)
