A couple of questions on LEUP



Hi,
in the blasting industry, a squib has a metal jacket and usually contains a secondary composition.
in large rocket motors, we generally want igniters that inject molten slag into the grains and get them going.
the guys with leups use thermite to do this.

Nope. Thermite is easilly made on your own, no LEUP needed. Thermalite is what is used for ignitors, if you can still find the stuff.

We need to ensure that actions by our government uphold the principles of a democratic society, accountable government and international law, and that all decisions are taken in a manner consistent with the Constitution.

I WAS talking Thermite, not thermalite.
most of the guys I know making thermite have leups, sorry to imply you might need one. some of the powdered metals might be easier found with a leup.
you can hurt yourself making the stuff you know, copper thermite etc..

Which one? The rust (iron oxide - what gives it the brownish color), or the aluminum?

It had become an universal and almost uncontroverted position in the several States, that the purposes of society do not require a surrender of all our rights to our ordinary governors; that there are certain portions of right not necessary to enable them to carry on an effective government, and which experience has nevertheless proved they will be constantly encroaching on, if submitted to them; that there are also certain fences which experience has proved peculiarly efficacious against wrong, and rarely obstructive of right, which yet the governing powers have ever shown a disposition to weaken and remove. Of the first kind, for instance, is freedom of religion; of the second, trial by jury, habeas corpus laws, free presses. -- Thomas Jefferson

Well, ematches are not squibs and BP in many states is found right at the gun store.
While your at the gun store, pick up a rifle as it's your right to bear arms ;-)

They (the law, not errortech) didn't even require them back then per 27 CFR 555.141-a-8 which HAS been affirmed by a JUDGE now.

I do not see you offering other advise, especially since it would be CONTRARY to LAW.

I thought Jerry was his own consultant. It is hard to find a consultant who tells you exactly what you want to hear.

Most of the answers to your permit questions can be found at:

The cost depends on the permit type.
Renewal period depends on the permit type.
Type 34, User of Low Explosives, is the permit you most likely want and is currently $100 for the initial application and is good for three years. After that renewal is $50 and also good for three years.
The Limited Permit is only limited in your privledges, not in paperwork or requirements. It is $25 for the first year and $12 per year thereafter. It has a yearly renewal cycle.

Who told you that? LEUPs have nothing to do with getting certified at Level 2, or any other level. They are completely and utterly irrelevant to flyer certification.
Why are you asking about this stuff here, instead of asking your local vendor and/or club? Obtaining the motor for your cert (and any subsequent flights) is between you and the vendor. Each vendor has his or her own policies, so only the vendor can advise you on what they require. Many vendors and/or clubs have arrangements available to assist flyers who don't have a LEUP, and if you really want a LEUP, they can help you with that too.
