In the US, you need license from the ATF, and also most states have laws and fees; however _I_ may possess 50 pounds of gunpowder (black or smokeless) without my state's permission. Rules in Canada seem to be similar, but more restrictive in practice.

I dimly remember knowing where to buy dynamite almost-legal when I was too young to buy. Apparently now all higher explosive sales must go through a federal license dealer. (Just as I can not sell/buy a gun across state line without a Dealer; but we got gun dealers in every other town, I don't see any dynamite dealers.)

Specifically dynamite: it is rarely used today for many reasons. Most mining is done with nitrate compounds and mixtures, not as compact but safer and properly placed can break more rock for less cost.

My wife and daughter both have .270 Winchesters. More than adequate for putting deer in the freezer, and sufficient for elk or moose at reasonable range with a stout bullet.

Had an air rifle as a teenager, and later I’ve been clay shooting with a 12 bore (in the UK). I noticed that with the 12 bore you get more haptic feedback

After an afternoon of pushing my electrical fish into many existing wall openings on the 2nd floor, I punted and ordered a refurbished powerline ethernet pair. That plus a cheap USB to ethernet adapter for my daughter's laptop.
Trying to buy an S/PDIF receiver board on the Ali BF sale but the AKM fire isn't helping.

Makes a nice hole in a hard disc, too.
