  • Those of you who still hunt with traditional flintlock Muzzleloaders know that nothing other than traditional black powder reall

    Those of you who still hunt with traditional flintlock Muzzleloaders know that nothing other than traditional black powder really shoots well out them. New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg has proposed a bill that will require a full Federal background check to purchase black powder. My guess is that fertilizer, hydrogen peroxide, gasoline, diesel fuel, matches, and batteries will soon be on the background check list too. What else do you think Congress will ban or put background checks on next?

    Traditional black powder has been difficult to locate for quite some time now.
    It's the whole reason I went to a T/C Omega. I still have two "traditional" rifles and a small supply of powder.
    No or "very" few stores still carry real black powder with strict storage rules.
    Powder must be kept in a magazine. The magazine has to be inventoried at the open and close of business. The magazine must also be inventoried after each sale and each sale has to be recorded with the name & address of the buyer.

    Powder can "most" easily be purchased feom the manufacturer. The down side is, the manufacturer will only sell and ship five pound lots. The manufacturer must also have on file a BATF form you fill out and send back to them. They can't ship (via UPS only!) until they have the form on file.
    It's ridiculous!

        Knives, pressure cookers, ball bearings, cell phones, and anything else the demoncrat libtards can come up with. Who knows, maybe they will limit the purchase of broadheads, arrows, and "scary looking" compound bows?

            Typical Knee Jerk Reaction. Out cry from a panic populace to politicians to do anything. Even if it's wrong and ill informed. While your in the banning mood. Why not Nitric, Sulfuric Acid and Cotton Balls [Nitro Cellulose/Gun Cotton] and Potassium Tetrachloride and Aluminum Powder [old fashion fire crackers]. Where there is an evil purpose there is an evil way.

              Just a second, guys! The situation with "black powder" isn't a "knee jerk" reaction. I worked in a gun shop in the late 70's. We couldn't keep black powder on the shelf, only an empty container. At that time, we didn't have to maintain a record of buyers, but we had to maintain a daily inventory.
              Smokeless powder was out on the shelf.
              The "BIG" key here is the difference in the two.
              Smokeless powder "burns".
              Black powder "detonates"!
              Black powder, as far as a propellant goes, is NOT very stable!

                Senator Frank is part of the group who wants to protect you from yourself, this senile old [email protected]@rd who sleeps in the senate more than he is awake cares not for your rights or liberties, only for his party's power.

                  What is our country coming to? Mike Bloomberg wanted to tell you how much soda you can buy so nothing should shock us anymore. Maybe one day the Republican party will quit being its own worst enemy and push more of these liberal idiots out of office that want to tell everyone how to live their life.
