Actually guys not to be an ass, but being a gun smith might very well be a helpful factor when it comes to this kind of stuff, I mean I'm not saying that qualifies him or anybody, but did you ever notice how gun barrels are black? that's not paint bud, its a certain kind of oxidization that protects the metal, and you come by that using verry dangerous chemicals, a black oxide coating is the flashpaper of the metal world haha. I'm not saying he should try it or that he's certified to do it, I don't even know if he's ever done a black oxide coating, all I'm saying is don't be so quick to put down gun smiths.

There was a young man from Green Bay
Who was making flash paper one day
He dropped a live match
Upon the whole batch
There WAS a young man from Green Bay

As a Wisconsin native (and one afraid to make their own flash paper) this made my day

Hello. I have a very experienced chemist friend with a lab in his garage that will make some for me. That said if I could buy what I want I wouldn't have him do it. I want a heavier weight paper. I see a company in China sells it wholesale (not sure how they would get away with shipping it to another country) but the stuff I find at magic shops in all like tissue paper. Any suggestions? Thanks, Kevin
