I made a small amount of BP as a kid. One of my best friends was a chem lab assistant and had access to the high grade ingredients, so I suppose we got a bit of a head start. But it did seem to turn out right. Never test fired any though.

I could see making it at home, as long as proper procedures and all that were followed. That might unfortunately be the future.

Gunz are icky.
I’ve made some. Years ago.
Really just to see if I could.
Total P.I.T.A.
BP will still be available just more expensive brands.
The Civ War and other re-enacting groups are gonna get hit hard.

Maybe I'm being overly optimistic, but I suspect Swiss will end up "picking up the slack"...
A lot of shooters were switching over anyhow, based on Swiss's reputation for quality and accuracy.

Some future dumbocrat administration will ban black powder imports to "save the children" and then that source will be gone.

Have you ever heard the "secret to being a millionaire"?
The answer is simple, but at the same time challenging... the secret is:

Identify the problem, and YOU be the solution.

I see that the lack of BP and other firearm components as the problem.
The first person to properly supply the masses with much-needed components (the solution) can reap the benefits.

O really liked that Ol Ensford powder. Gave Swiss a run for its money. Times are changing.
