What’s going on guys? Well most of you that have been around for a while have read of my stuff. Now in no way am I a great writer but I love to write good things about effects that I use and recommend to other magi’s. I am no Jamie, so bare with me. Well, here goes a quick review about “Provisions” Charlie Justice’s add on to his hit, “Prohibition”. I must say that I am glad I got this. I am a big fan of the Cap in bottle effect and we all know that there are many out there to choose from. I will not bad mouth or review any of the others because whether if I know the method or not I have found that Prohibition was the best one for me. Now let me tell you what I mean best for me. I walk around with my Wizard everywhere (LOOK UP WIZARD ON HERE IF YOU ARE NOT SURE WHAT I AM REFERING TOO). I am very careful not to tip methods so forgive me for the secrets’ but let’s be honest if you do not know what that is then you have to get out of line and get to the back so you can start from square one. Anyway I tend to get off topic so again forgive me. I am in the Air force and I attend a lot of functions that have beer bottles so as long as I am wearing my Wizard then I am ready to go and kill them with an impossible effect. I lost my Wizard a while ago and didn’t want to get another one but I found mine under my computer table and once I put it on I was back to doing prohibition every chance I got. I ordered provisions and I must say that I am truly glad I did. Before I go any further let me tell you that you need to know how Prohibitions is done prior to getting Provisions. Luckily they have a package on their site so no worries there. But I do like it I enjoyed a lot of the add ons and different thoughts and presentations that they put on this DVD/Download. I mainly liked the part about water bottles or any other plastic bottles. That is what I call thinking outside of the box, CHARLIE I WANT TO SEE YOUR JINGLE BELLS, curiosity has bitten me.
Back to the review, Charlie continues with his very detailed explanations of all the different ways that you can apply the Cap in bottle effect as well as giving proper dues to those who came up with the concepts of the effect. He covers what to do when there is no glass bottles, plastic bottles, ways to make the cap in glass bottle a little stronger for those who do not like the original presentation which by the way “WE NEED TO STOP THINKING LIKE MAGI’S WHEN IT COMES TO EFFECTS!!!” Laymen do not see what we see. I performed Prohibition last night by the pool at a hotel and my co-workers AND lay people were floored by the original. However a co-worker added his two cents to “DO IT AGAIN” so I did ala Provisions with the Pseudo Cap and killed them. I love the whole leading them down the path only to yank them the other way last minute.
I truly believe those who own “Prohibition” need to get “Provisions”. Before I get comments like “WHY DIDN’T HE JUST PUT ALL THAT STUFF IN THE ORIGINAL” let me tell you, that is our fault. We tend to pressure people to put out an idea and years down the line add ons like these come out. We have a tendency to want things NOW, NOW, NOW, NOW. I think Provisions is very nicely priced especially with all the alternatives that it provides. So let me tell you for those who already know/own “Prohibition” I rate this 10-10, for those who do not and are curious that is easy this is what they are providing.
Prohibition 2.0 It will be available in three flavors. First, purchase the Prohibitions DVD including the Bonus Provisions DVD from Jeffpiercemagic.com for $24.95 and receive the Digital Download for free! Second, purchase both Prohibition 2.0 and Provisions as a Digital Download Combo for $19.95 And lastly, if you already own the original Prohibition DVD and just wand the bonus DVD Provisions, get it as a Digital Download for just $9.95. These offers are only available directly from http://www.jeffpiercemagic.com and not through other dealers.

Hope you like my review. The next thing ill review when I get a chance is The Trinity System. On the road right now so havent had a chance to play but have high hopes. Let me know your thoughts please...

I just downloaded this last night.

Haven't been doing Prohibition for a while now, but want to get it back in my working repertoire again. Mr. Justice did a great job with this DVD/download. Some really great ideas here that performers of Prohibition will really enjoy. Nice additions and ideas. Love Mr. Justice's unbent cap in bottle. Brilliant! I have a feeling quite a few people will be doing this new version.

All around owners of Prohibitions will really enjoy Provisions. Definitely worth it.

Wow...very kind and gracious of you all to be so generous with your remarks. I'm really glad that Jeff and I decided to re-package the project with the bonus DVD and can't be more pleased to know that it's still being received so well. Thanks again gents.

I did this at work yesterday Charlie as part of my class. I was teaching the M2/.50 Cal weapon and did it with the links that hold the round on a belt. Completly fried them. LOL thanks.

Just downloaded and watched Provisions.
I new it would be worth the money,but Charlie had me smiling from ear to ear almost the whole time.
Never thought this would have this much info.
You have a full mini act with a cap and bottle,from several stunts with the cap,to bells that let you appreciate(agian) how solid the Prohibition system is to an ultra clean repeat That leaves you 100% clean before you even finish to presentations and handlings,that impressed me just as much as when I first learned Prohibition.
With the info in Provisions,you can routine it so you do the penetration with the top sealed and then take the cap off the top and make it go also and give the bottle away if you wanted to.
Charlie saved the best for last with the work on the unbent cap,which before I saw this I had considered it something I would not be interested in,considering how strong the effect already was,but now I feel a lot of people will reconsider when they see the beauty in this section.
Way more than worth it.

Read a review of Prohibitions 2.0 plus Provisions above.


Hi everyone,
When Charlie and I released Prohibition: The Ultimate Cap in Bottle back in 2006, we did not know it was going to be such a big hit. About a year or so ago we were able to get control of it again and decided to re-release it with a bonus dvd called Provisions. This bonus dvd was free when you purchased the Prohibition disk.

On the Provisions DVD was additional tips and ideas, new handlings of The Cap Trap Move and a couple of killer new routines including The Sobriety Test, version of the Cap Trap Move that will blow your mind like it did me. Also included on the DVD is Charlies handling of a flat cap in bottle that can be done with no set up! You can walk up to someone drinking a beer and do a flat cap in bottle effect without needing to walk away to set up. I think the possibilities are endless and that's why prohibition is still a number one seller from Murphys.

The problem was we had hundreds contact me that they already had the Prohibition DVD and did not want to buy it again, and I can't say I don't blame them. So what we have come up with are three Prohibition plans.

First is of course to buy the new dual DVD set at $24.95. This was the same price as the original Prohibitions disk. BTW if you buy it from Jeffpiercemagic.com you get the downlioad for free!

Second, buy both Prohibition and Provision as Digital Downloads for $19.95.

And lastly, for those who already own Prohibition, you can download The Provisions Digital Download for $9.95

For the month of June, what I'd like to offer my friends on the Café is a 10% discount on any of the above deals when you purchase direct from my website. At checkout type "The Magic Café" in the Discount Coupon Code to receive 10% off.

Thanks to all,
Jeff Pierce

I just got the download and think it was worth the money. Some great bonus ideas. If nothing else, it reminded me that Prohibition is one of the best and most visual effects I've seen in 25 years in the biz and certainly the best cap in bottle I've ever seen.

No...as a separate download it is only available thru Jeff's website. Jeff, however, is on a faraway and much deserved vacation for at least another week, if not longer. That may be the reason it's not currently working. I'll bring this up to him next time we talk.

peace, charlie

Hi Jeff,

It seems more people have the same problem in trying to purchase the download. At the final step of confirming the transaction Paypal redirects you every time back to step 2, billing address.

Hope you're able to fix this anytime soon.
