I haven't heard of any compition shooting out my way, but I'm going to check that out. As far as not selling bullets unless you buy a gun or shoot it at your range, well thats just good business sense right now. Its hard to sell a gun with no ammo for it. I just hope things turn around soon.

I agree but only if it's the individual stores mandating it.

I was lucky enough to buy 2lbs of Bullseye a week ago at a LGS about an hour and a half from my house. Since the crisis started, we have been shooting less. We don't like it, but what else can we do? This powder should last us through the end of the year, at least. Plus, I have a little bit of Silhouette left, if I really need it.

If I owned a store, selling goods of any kind, and someone came in and bought it all, I'd go home early for the day and save on overhead costs. Can't blame it on capitalism. Get out of bed earlier

I agree if they bought everything, yea close down early and go home. But just image owning a silverware store and someone came in and just bought all the forks in the place. It would be harder to make more sales with out the forks.

If I sold all my forks I would offer soup at competitive prices. That would provide a spoon market. Refusing to sell only limited amounts of any thing is a poor business practice. Anyone can circumvent that rule.

The iPhone doesn't have a "like" option so take this as that.

I'm sure the guy who bought up all the powder probably sold it some where else for a higher price. I think this limit should only be during times like this. Who agrees
up to the store owner.

but most municipalities DO have limits on how much blackpowder you can have in your home. mainly due to the severe hazard of explosions with blackpowder. where i live its 5 pounds. anymore than that and it requires special permiting and storage hoops you gotta jump through for safety of your neighbors.

5 pounds is enough to take out a good chunk of your home and you with it. more than that and it starts to endanger your neighbors...

Black powder in cans is not that dangerous. The cans are made with bottoms that melt at low temps. I have never known of a properly stored supply of BP blowing up anything. Black powder must be under compression to blow up "Houses". The 5 gallons of lawn mower fuel in you garage is far more likely to explode.
City ordinances are based on fear mongering by politicians. These are just more gun control rooted laws. We are allowed to keep 50 lbs. without a safe. UPS trucks roll down your streets everyday with cases of Black.

I vote no. If store owners take it upon themselves to institute a limit, that's their call. They likely won't get my business anymore though.

People buying up all the stock and reselling it at an inflated price to make a quick buck off of other's desires and emotional state (panic), piss me off as much, or more, than most people.

But a mandatory limit spits in the face of freedom.

I'm not talking government setting the limits I'm talking store owners. And only when hard times like these. Yea people can work around it and they do all the time. When someone comes in over a weeks time and buys 2000lbs of powder, you know he is reselling it online at a much higher price. I don't know it just pisses me off
