BATF Update (1/9/1999)

Back in November, after the news of impending rules and regulations regarding G and larger rocket motors, Aerotech published two press releases.  These press releases essentially said that Aerotech had been talking to the BATF, the BATF had not intended to regulate G motors, the BATF would introduce new rules clarifying that G's would not be regulated, and that "Easy Access" high power motors would continue to be unregulated for the immediate future.  These statements have not been confirmed by the BATF.  The exact text of these Aerotech press releases may be found at the Aerotech web site.

In early February, representatives of the NAR, TRA, NFPA and BATF will be meeting.   Hopefully, some hard and fast answers will result from this meeting.  Stay tuned...
