    13 Similarly a box constructed from plywood must not be kept in any form of metal box, drawer or cupboard.
    above is extract from the regs. If you can't keep it in a cupboard, where do you keep it?

    How, then, would you answer your own question?

    Maybe we need an new acronym -along the lines of "RTFM"- for such queries?

    DATSD-AYFFEO?

    I was under the impression that Nitro powder was a propellant rather than an explosive. Therefore does not come under explosive regulations.
