I've been looking around for the pen style bear banger and have so far only found Canadian retailers that can't or won't ship to the U.S.
Can anyone link me to a usa retailer?

Bear bangers being widely available in Canada, you can thank the U.S. federal government for the ATF restrictions, permit and license requirements on "explosive pest control devices" (EPCDs).


From that article: "Under federal explosives laws, all persons who wish to manufacture, import, or distribute explosives, including EPCDs, must acquire a federal explosives license, and those who wish to receive explosives must acquire a federal explosives permit."

You apparently can purchase two-part banging devices in the USA—namely, low power blank shells plus a launcher—such as these from Margo Supplies:
