The microcanonical statistics of the Schwarzschild black holes as well as the Reissner-Nordstrom black holes are analyzed. In both cases we set up the inequalities in the microcanonical density of states. These are then used to show that the most probable configuration in the gases of black holes is that one black hole acquires all of the mass and all of the charge at the high-energy limit. Thus the black holes obey the statistical bootstrap condition and, in contrast to the other investigation, we see that the U(1) charge does not break the bootstrap property.
