Given the plant explosions related to primer ingredients over the last couple of decades (Lake City & Sellier & Bellot; though S&B now claims Russian sabotage was responsible for theirs, you never know when that kind of claim might be someone dodging responsibility), I'm not inclined to believe handling lead styphnate, even if you could get some, would be a good thing for amateurs to do. Every once in a while you hear of a terrorist's clandestine bomb factory spontaneously sending its occupants to meet their maker, and I think attempts at making primers would have a pretty good chance of heading a number of enterprising folks in that same direction. If the professionals can't always do it safely...
