    Heya Fellas. I was just wondering if anybody had any good websites that would have info. on which cities or states have regulations which limit the amount of gunpowder or primers one could store at their house. Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    glad to see you're under the radar asking these kinds of questions.
    my response is: "i was unaware of any regulations of this kind."

    whatever you do don't call your local fire dept.

    I didn't go to the links Shadow posted, but I know the NFPA has a "model ordinance" that many, if not most, cities adopt, if they're big enough to even have this on THEIR radar... (My city is.)

    My dad was a professional firefighter for 30 years in my city, so I definitely sympathize with them. I build shelving and cabinets that come close-to, meet, or sometimes exceed the code to store my primers in. My powder, I'm a little less anxious about, because containing powder makes it explosive, whereas not containing it, just means it burns aggressively... Primers are ALWAYS explosive...
