My local dealer can't afford to spend $500-$800 on an approved powder magazine for one customer's needs.

It's ridiculous that blackpowder is singled out as an explosive when it does the same thing as smokeless or the substitutes, which can be abused the same way.

Let's see . . . . I've got a can of Goex sitting on my shelf but the price marked on the can is $1.75! Oh yea . . . I forgot . . . . I bought that back in 1966 . . . . . when I could buy a can of 100 #11 caps for fifty cents.

I believe that the difference is the boom versus the burn (OK, maybe a little simplistic, but you get the picture...)
