This article is from the Model Rockets FAQ, by Wolfram von Kiparski with numerous contributions by others.
The following is an excerpt from the June 1994 'Tripoli Report'. Since
this deals with Federal Law and not Tripoli rules, I do not believe that
there is any violation of Tripoli by-laws in doing this.

establishes that his operations to be conducted will not require the
storage of an affected high-power rocket commodity.
6) Is familiar with and understands all published state laws and local
ordinances relating to affected high-power rocket communications

You may obtain a users permit with or without a storage magazine. If
your primary reason for the permit is to be able to buy HPR motors
at out of state launches, then you don't need a home storage magazine.
If you do have a home storage magazine, remember to keep the proper
records for all motors added to and removed from the magazine.

questions regarding the proper filling out of the permits. He may
