    I really think you guys are over-reacting a little tiny bit. What is the big deal with registering with the DEA (now DHS)? Do you own a car? is it registered with the DMV??? You don't think twice about that - do you? So what's with all this drama over registering with the Gov so that you can buy chems?

    I was just at the local supplier the other day...bought a quarter pound of Silver Nitrate. Apparently, it has some non-photographic uses....so, yup, they checked my id and made sure that I was already "on file" as having registered. What's the big deal?

    ...I don't know anything about the ordering of chemicals, so, from that perspective, I guess I shouldn't talk. Maybe, if I were, I'd be upset, too. Also, maybe, like the ridiculous ephederine situation at the pharmacy, the govt should stop punishing us, b/c a few criminals are manufacturing drugs. I agree with that, totally. Maybe, they should educate themselves on what analougue photographers use, so that we're not affected by this stuff, I agree. My points, above, just stem from my overall frustration that this country has gone so far left in the past year or two, and it scares the you know what out of me. I believe, 100%, that if we try to appease terrorists, or be PC, in ANY WAY, so as not to offend "that part of the world," we will set this country up (and all of the Western world,) for its own destruction.

    I apologize if I spoke about a topic with with I have no experience, but, I, most of you, I'm sure, want our way of life preserved for us and our kids. We, as a society, have nothing to apologize for. We didn't do anything. The war came to us; however, if I'm wrong about the topic of this thread, then I apologize.

    This is somewhat disheartening to me as I have wanted to mix my own chems for quite some time.

    DO not believe this crap. Go to the photographer's formulary or art craft chemicals and CJ chemicals on ebay. Everything you need to get started mixing your own is easily available. This is just so much fear mongering and "the sky is falling!" I cannot believe it. Do NOT buy into the fear. Just look and you will find what you need.

    Those who would give up essential chemistry in the pursuit of liberty deserve DSLRs.

    Um, or something.

    my guess is that PE was buying something that was not
    a regular thing that one would purchase to make a developer ...
    i know i don't plan on buying panchromatic dyes anytime soon ... maybe that is what he was getting ...

    why don't you register yourself + your enterprise as a DBA so you can use your
    business name instead of personal name as the purchaser, and register yourself
    with whatever entity they want you to register with. it costs about 10$ here to register as a DBA ...

    How about "PhotoEngineer Products"

    I haven't had a problem finding anything I need. I've even purchased sodium hydroxide, which is theoretically illegal for sale to the general public in New York City, at B&H, and I've ordered it online when it wasn't available locally. I purchase from Artcraft, Photographer's Formulary, Bostick & Sullivan, and occasionally from Mostly-Metals (which I think may be operating under a new name lately--not sure if he's still in business).
