Yup, it all depends on the circumstances for which method is best suited for the job at hand. I agree completely. Nitric oxide gases have a definite odor and a "biting" sensation when inhaled because it reacts with the water in your lungs. Also, The gas has a dark-red/deep-maroon and dare I say pretty color. It is the not so noticeable toxic gases that I am more fearful of. Nitrogen oxides are definitely very toxic like many gaseous elements and compounds. I am sharing information on how to make nitric acid for those who do not have easy access to it or who have never considered using it for whatever reason. I am seriously considering writing a tutorial that details how to make nitric acid easily and safely and posting it in the tutorials section if it hasn't been posted already. All in all, I will eventually try the AP method when I have completed my current projects and I can get around to experimenting with it.
