Anyone know how much powder I can legally store in my house? I'm asking because the local range indicated that prices of powder will rise with their next inventory purchase. I may want to stock up now.

Why not give your local sporting goods/reloading store a call. If they sell smokeless powder then I would assume they could answer your question. However since I don't think the State of Maryland makes a practice of searching homes for illegal quantities of powder, I wouldn't sweat the quantity I bought and stored. Just don't advertise the fact. :)
