Hey TomADC, Duncans gunworks in San Marcos has GOEX FFFg. I just bought a can there last week. They are on Grand Ave. just East of Ranch Sante Fe. A bit spendy though $28.75 for just under a pound. They don't have it out on the shelves, so you have to ask for it. They are closed on Sun. and Mon. Hope this helps.

Jack's Powder who is a Goex distributor http://www.jackspowderkeg.com/ will sell 25Lbs of his bulk Goes in 1lb containers for $255.00 which includes shipping and haze-mat fees. It works out to $10.10 a lb. I was trying to get a group buy going but never got any response. I think I am going to take all my Xmas money and buy a 25lb lot of it for myself. I probably would not have to buy any for a long long time.

Thanks for the link, GG. I just cracked my last can of Holy Black. When that's gone, all that I'll have left is some Pyrodex and some weird stuff that was in a box of BP reloading accessories.

After checking it made me realize why i spend the 20.00 at the range again for a lbs of powder. its the shipping and hazmat fees. If all i need is a few lbs of powder then its still the same price to buy at the range. Same time i just cant keep more powder at home. As i reload and have smokeless powder as well on hand. Same time becarefull know your state laws.. In ********** i believe legally on blackpowder your not supposed to have over 5lbs of black

im in...

alright guys ive been haunting this forum for almost a year now.
finally i got my own cannon.






and now a family photo

i was very impressed with the craftsmanship of Uberti compared to my piettias. i also just might be the youngest walker owner on the site coming in at just 24 years of age. i got an incredible deal from cabelas. it was $399 and there was a small scratch on the side of the cylinder(no biggie) and that brought it down to $369 then i had a $70 off coupon, down to $299 then i had $65 in cabelas dollars down to $234 plus a bag of .44 lubed wads and tax brought a grand total of $262 for my walker. lets see anybody else beat that! i finally request permission to join the walker regiment.
hopefully this week i will be taking my walker out to the range to break 'er in. and i will be taking pictures

I loaded mine up for the last week-end of deer hunting here in OK. Naturally all the deer failed to cooperate. And I just haven't had time to shoot it since. As soon as I empty it and clean it up I think I'm gonna start on removin' the blue, since a bunch of it's gone anyway. Don't know if I'll leave it white, re-blue or go brown with it.
