I went to a gunstore to buy powder. I have used Varget before, so asked for some and was told they had none. The guy said they stopped importing it because of a European ban, based on the coating causing cancer. Do they think we are eating it? Ridiculous.

VinceA, actually back in the 17th or 18th century I believe they added gunpowder to their food to give them extra vigour. I just diddnt know some still did it...

My shooting buddy in Italy says that "real men" won't eat sausages preserved with nitrates or nitrites because they destroy your manhood by pickling your testicles. Only traditional farmer's salame cruda is permitted among the mountain people. The grocery store sausages are intended for the French, Swiss and German tourists, and roma immigrants from Eastern Europe, being crucial in the papal, clerico-Marxist plot to control excess population.

There are too many things that we are told to stay away from, everything you read about has something in it that will kill you! At this age now, I have miss out on a lot of things. :eating: My motto now is you only live one. I lost a good friend about 2 months ago, he got hit by a car leaving the GYM.

Do you get a prize for being the healthiest in a Cemetery?

Unless Great Britain is like California and has banned lead in the projectiles, the exposure to lead will most likely do you in sooner than the cancer from the powder. After all, when reloading, we actually handle the projectiles, but powder is poured into the measure, dispensed into the pan (for set up), and then dispensed directly into the cases. No direct contact with it at all.

Sounds like more government intervention for no real reason to me.

I bet they have not banned smoking--yet.

I received a piece of metal on-line and it came stamped with "Known to the State of California to cause cancer". They give the ole Caliretard Stamp to anything that contains lead or chromium even if it is a non-leaching metallurgical form.The liberals out there are completely ignorant of any and all facts known to real science and engineers.

Folks, don't chew on that round bar or angle iron, you might get cancer after destroying your teeth.

The Hundred Years War, the Fifty Years War, the War of This, the War of That. The Franco-Prussian-Romanian-Italian-Austrian-Papal-Turkish-Hungarian-Germanic-Spanish-Dutch-Swedish-Danish-Russian-Holy Roman Empire Wars have been going on in Europe since 3000 years before Christ. Europeans have been slaughtering each other in large numbers since the Tribal Days.

Now they're up on their high horses telling you how to save yourself from yourself. Does the word 'hypocrisy' fit these warlike savages?
