Found pistol powder today!!!

I am happy today. I had came across some Unique powder on Bass Pro's website a few weeks back & ordered a pound with the ship to store option. They do not charge a HAZMAT fee for this. Cabela's will not let you ship to store on powder/primers. It comes to your house & you pay the HAZMAT, but they do eat some of it as they only charge $20.

Anyway, I went to pick it up, but decided to stop by my reloading shop (Graf's) as it's a 1/2 mile down the road from BP.

I have not been there in about a month as I have been busy with work & have not called in 2 weeks to check on pistol powder, but get there & say hi & ask if I can lay on their floor in protest( the new local joke), then ask the million dollar ? that every sap that walks in ask & he says" I have quiet a few pistol powders, but not a lot of any one."

I get a smile & am giddy as a little girl! You have TiteGroup I ask & he says yes. How about CFE Pistol (one of my new favorites) & get another yes. No HP-38 or Win.231, but not bad. I am in business for at least another year or so. Stopped at BP & got the Unique (I have not used it in 15 years) & it was new & improved a few years back I read.

I still have about a 1/2 pound of Universal, (which was my emergence backup), HP-38, CFE Pistol & TiteGroup, but when I open a pound, I just like having a full one behind it. Looks like Unique is going to be my new emergency back-up pound of powder. It's great knowing you have a powder you can do anything with!

Guys & Gals, my Xmas came early.

Nobody has seen Unique in our area for over a year, now. You did well to grab it.

They had 8 jugs on the shelf in the store also.

Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good!
