[”” is mystery ingredient number four in Boomerite. There are three ingredients listed in the recipe on the website but what we actually use is one generation ahead of what we post on the website.

Whenever I am so completely open and honest about what I am doing with some large quantity of something (like a shopping cart full of zip lock bags) I always wonder if the police got a call as I was walking out the door. If so, I always managed to get out of town before the cops caught up with me.—Joe]

  1. Interesting how a guy with an explosives license that has a good relationship with his local ATF is STILL a little worried about being hassled by the cops while perusing a legitimate and legal activity.

  2. …I’m just waiting for a report of someone being stopped by police for openly carrying suspicious amounts of (X). (Could a math major get in trouble for excessive f(X)or is that only film majors?)

  3. Joe – I’ll chime in with Joe, Jeff and Ken above – given Costco’s negative attitude toward firearms, isn’t there another source for Substance X?

  4. I could buy it in one or two pound bags from any grocery store. That increases the cost quite a bit. I could look for another supplier who sells in 50 pound bags.

    I considered giving up my Costco membership many years ago when I discovered their anti-gun policy. I decided it wasn’t worth it to me. My family, including my parents, buy a lot of stuff at Costco and save a lot of money by doing so. They do not enforce or even put signs up about their policy and I nearly always am carrying concealed when I shop there.

    If I were to boycott them it would hurt me as much or more than it does them. There are some battles worth fighting and some that are not. I decided Costco didn’t quite meet my threshold for doing battle against them.

  5. If X is what I think it is try Cash and Carry. They are basically a SysCo (food stuff) catalog in store form. They have any number of things in 25 and 50 pound bags. They have locations in Spokane in addition to the one up and down I-5 in washington.
