      Below is something off a C.W. reenactor forum. This fellow relates
      what some BP dealers told him. You think you are paying a lot for
      gas...? Put that on top of powder....as it could be. Anyone for an
      1812 bowling league? Go figure.
      --------------------------
      In brief and to over-generalize...

      I was talking with one of this state's two remaining BP commercial
      sellers-

      "They said" it would require carriers such as FEDEX and UPS to modify
      their delivery trucks to have a "vault" and be a "non-sparking"
      environment as well.
      "They said" it is unlikely companies would be willing to modify their
      fleet in such a way.
      This would eliminate black powder deliveries to local
      suppliers/shops.

      With that and the other "delivery/deliverer" regulations, Black
      Powder would not be BANNED, it would potentially just cease to be
      shipped or delivered by these common carriers. Vendors who deal with
      them, and have no other recourse would cease having BP to sell.
      Not BANNING Black Powder, just regulating it to extinction for many
      of these suppliers.

      Up until; July 12, 2007, "impact" statements and other public
      opinions can post comments to the proposed regulations to OSHA itself
      at:

      Enter OSHA-2007-0032 as the docket number in #4, then select exact
      phrase/comments and submit.
