Actually, Make SURE you check the can they hand you that it's black powder AND the granulation, no matter where you make the purchase. I have seen even well versed clerks hand the wrong granulation of Goex to an unsuspecting and trustful customer, only to find they have bought $25 of 4Fg. In larger stores, I have seen yahoos behind the gun counters handing out smokeless powder when the customer asked for a BP substitute because the label colors are similar.
It's not what you know, it's what you can prove

Will have to get up to Bass Pro in Auburn, NY to see if they have it. New restricition on purchasing anything in NY were set to be in place Jan. 15, 2014, but the NY State Police weren't set up to do real background checks to purchase ammunition.:-(

Again, depends on different factors. Where you live and who you have a policy with. Could also be how you store it. Still trying to figure.... how do they know? There are worse things in most peoples homes than bp.
