I’ve got a bunch of pyrodex and blackhorn, but I don’t have any “blackpowder”. I really need to remedy that.
I’ve had a hard time finding Goex anywhere. All the substitutes and synthetics seem to be the only things now.

It's tough to find real black powder. The counter guys at gun shops typically point to the pyrodex or other black powder substitutes on the shelves.
In reality, there can only be a small amount on display with the rest sequestered in special magazines within the store as black powder is considered an explosive.
From the ATF:
Low Explosives
Low explosives deflagrate producing a large volume of heated gas. Low explosives, such as black powder, most display fireworks, safety fuse, igniters, igniter cord, fuse lighters, etc., must be stored in:
  • Type-1, -2, or -4 permanent, portable or mobile indoor/outdoor magazines.
Explosive Storage Requirements | Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (atf.gov)
