can't find real black powder

I live in Rhode Island and can't find anybody that carries real Goex black powder. Next meeting, I'm going to ask the elders about it. One of them is in the official state militia and has to qualify with a musket. I'm sure he'll know. This is stupid. Foster Bear Arms should carry this stuff. I just ordered a 1851 Navy for a gift for someone, and I'll be eventually shooting my new Lyman .54 deerstalker when I get my return back from Connecticut. Maybe I'll retire and open a traditional gun shop. Bass Pro didn't have anything I wanted with my gift cards my brother got me. I'm going to call Cabelas in CT in a few minutes to see if they carry Goex FFG.

I get my black powder from a local store called the White Elephant. It's the only place around here that carries it.

Well, Cabelas gun counter is too busy to answer the phone. I came across a thread in another forum that said Bass Pro has it in the back. Sure enough I called them in Foxboro, MA, and they have it. Only thing is you need a Mass. FID card to purchase it.
