    Good grief- I cannot find anyone within about 100 miles who stocks real blackpowder! I'm finally running out of my last can of Goex, and no one around this area retails it.
    I may have to finagle some from my reenactor buddies.
    Anyone know of a location in VA, WV, MD etc who still retails Goex, Swiss or even Elephant?
    Do y'all have trouble finding BP in your neck of the woods?

    Sounds good to me. I just bought the last two cans of 2F, or any F for that matter, in the county for $18 per can. It's a real pain as the main distribution center for goex is about two hours drive from here. I called them up to see if I could stop by and get a case. No way ray. I need a blasting license to buy it direct from them. So now I have to buy online and pay all the shipping and hazmat.

    I tell you I try very hard to buy locally and not from Big Box stores. But it is getting harder and harder to support local businesses when they don't stock what I want. I guess the local businesses don't have the same loyalty to me as I have to them.
