After the third or fourth time the police come around and ask us to keep it down. That's after they see it lit off.

    Down side is black powder is hard to get and expensive. I think the one shown is bigger than the one I've been around, but if you have 2k to buy a toy, you can have some fun with this.

    It also keeps unwanted neighbors away.
    Black powder is cheap if you can make the trip to Clearfield. That's where I get it.
    $262.50/25lbs of black powder here...

    There was and maybe still is a huge black powder place off Rt 78, about 4 or 5 exits west of where the turnpike crosses it west of Allentown before the 78/81 joining. Have not been there is over 20 years, 90-91 but it was a huge barn kinda in the middle of nowhere and they had everything you can imagine in black powder including fully built cannons on caissons with the small wagon for ammo storage you hooked the horses up to. Spent damn near 4 hours looking at stuff. They were pretty busy.

    Funny how powder size determines if you need a license or not. I'd like some 1FA

    Thompson SMG clone, Luger (guessing you may already have though, if u collect WW2), designated long range rifle like a Ruger Precision Rifle, or a nice semi rifle like a M1A or H&K USC

    Not sure what you mean. As long as you aren't getting more than 50lbs anyone can pretty much get it.
    I see they offer a discount on bulk 1fa only for 200lbs or more but that would need the ATF license. Just get 50lbs or less of it.

    1FA is lift charge for firework shells if not mistaken. You need a license to buy it,
    but you can make it without. Its real quiet compared to the smaller granular stuff.

    I assume you are talking about Dixons. Take the Kempton exit off of 78 and go N.

    I got a little lost here with the boundaries on our recommendations, and given the price limit of ~$2G my desire exceeds that a bit(MSRP $2799), but with H&K now selling us the SP5 how can any serious collector not want that in their collection?


    *ETA: Yikes I just went to gunbroker to see what they are asking for - LMAO a gun that exceeds MSRP and not by just a little
