2,4,6-Trinitrophenol Salts

Hi Everyone :)
I'm new to the Forum and this is my first post

I synthesized 2,4,6 Trinitrophenol and was trying out several of the salts. I had the best results with the potassium salt. However, I could never really get the Ammonium salt to do anything interesting. I couldn't get it to detonate through shock or friction, and it acted as a dead weight when I tried to use the potassium salt of TNP to initiate it.
Is this common behavior for the ammonium salt?

Kalium picrate explodes, been ignited in confinement. Ammonium is very insensitive. I mixed it with AN. But this mix requires some initiator. maybe lead picrate- I do not know- I used hated by many guys TATP.

Women are more perilous sometimes, than any hi explosive.
