I hate those initials, as it's always getting longer and longer and longer... Anyway.... Being of "unsound" mind, (which I really don't mind!) and definitely an infirm body (yup it's NOT the years, it's the mileage!) I really want to know something.... Since I don't do well when reading a lot of mind scrambling technical and political gibberish.... In laymen's terms: What would it take, "licensing wise", to start a primer manufacturing business? (Other than capital: $$$) ? The technology is really quite simple, and having done some recent research on varied subjects having to do with this..... Would it still require a licensing for "destructive devices"? The basic chemicals needed would require certain licensing for certain.... They are on the "hot list" to be monitored by the federales. To me, at least, it appears to be an obscenity to have to pay $2,500 to $5,000.00 in federal fees each year, to be "licensed" to make something that in and of itself, is pretty much NOT an explosive, but contains a compund that is construed to be such. Confusing.... But, I can bet that IF some have their way, each and every primer will require a separate $200 tax stamp, as a destructive device!
