Let's see. The price of gasoline is down. Well, demand is down, we are told. But demand was down this spring, when the price of gas went up.

And since those are profits, they can play with them.
"Suppose we cut the price of gas through the summer. Then, late Sept through all October, we kept on raising the price. Think that might affect the election?"
When it comes to playing games, the Federal bureaucracy is a piker compared to big business. Inept indeed, and unlike so many countries, can't be bribed. We institutionalize our bribery; it's reserved for the well-to-do.
Since this is one of those things you just can't win, let's thank Lou Murdica & Western for their efforts, wait while the wheels grind, & enjoy the result. Skip the small $hit.
Yes Thank you Lou Murdica. for all your efforts.
I for one am anxiously awaiting and hopeing i might get my hands on some.
Many thanks to Lou and western for sure. The benchrest community is quite small in comparison to other shooting disciplines. Anytime anyone goes out of there way to accommodate us, it is a good thing. It take s money to do things like this,and i am sure there is quite a bit of money rapped up into this new powder. What makes me concerned is that the federal agency's don't care about whos, or what money is where, or who can or will benefit from the release of this powder. there are several retailers that will make a few coins when this powder is released, not to mention the people that stuck there necks out for us to give us such a gift. Seems selfish to me that there has to be so much red tape bureaucracy bull crap. Thats all! Lee
