I would prefer a "Wild West" total Free-Fer-All.
No Harm=No Foul. If "something" happens, you deal with individual incidents, individually in perpetuity.


Yes, I would like that , too . . . BUT !

(1) The NAR insurance would NEVER cover that . . . So, landowners will "shy away", without liability coverage.

(2) SOME regulation helps to prevent TOTAL regulation.

(3) It would pose extreme safety risks, potentially.

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask what is "NORMAL" , you probably aren't !

Failure may not be an OPTION, but it is ALWAYS a POSSIBILITY.

(1) - Losing landowners IS a "big deal", when it comes to the future of Rocketry, particularly HPR, but LPR / MPR could be affected, too

(2) An example of "limited regulation" versus "total regulation" is NAR & TRIPOLI being able to do their own Certifications . . . "Total Regulation" might include having to be federally and/ or state licensed, fingerprinted, and having to keep meticulous records for EVERY motor, from Micro-Maxx, on up . . . There might also be a "usage tax" collected for "environmental impact", too.

(3) You would definitely "care", if one of your "basement bomber" motors, in a metal case, over-pressurized ( exploded, if BP ) and severely injured, or killed, a child, for example.

Without insurance, you would have to bear total financial responsibility . . . Not to mention potential criminal charges, due to the injury to and/or death caused, by your actions.

Just because something is "unregulated" does not mean that the consequences of one's actions are not punishable by Law.

REMEMBER, NAR Competition is based on ALL Competitors flying motors within a specific total impulse range, for each given event.

It's NOT about "fly whatever you want", regardless of power level.

Consider how slanted the playing field would be if BTCs are allowed to fly "boutique" motors they made or acquired from private sources at exorbitant prices...
