So how's a guy supposed to get a little anhydrous ammonia
Without getting his phone tapped?

I guess they think a little phone-tapping is a small price to pay for a good supply of anhydrous ammonia.
I just want to make a little contact explosive.

I'd settle for some good aqueous ammonia.
The stuff at the supermarket won't cut it.

Well, let's see now. Anhydrous ammonia is ammonia without any water in it, which is a gas. A very painfully pungent gas that is not nice to have around. I think you need to be more accurate about what you are asking for...
Yeah I later found out that what I really want is aqeous ammonia. My mistake.
Actually I think what I need is "reagent quality" ammonia. I really need to do more research.

The usual name for it is "880" ammonia. You can make it yourself without too much difficulty by concentrating the regular dilute ammonia you can buy in large bottles for household use. You may even be able to buy 880 ammonia from a hardware store, they do seem to have lots of interesting stuff in hardware stores, I've noticed.
Well, since anhydrous ammonia is used as a fertilizer by farmers, there is a legitimate use for it. However, if you're not a farmer, the #1 use for it in the US is for making meth. So perhaps you should put the crack pipe down and go into another line of business?

Well! That answers the question why they'd like to tap your phone. A good meth supplier is hard to find.
Or so I'm told.
Hmm, I wonder if you could make a remotely automated meth lab that you just periodically refill with all the battery acid and all those other chemicals and it just spit out tablets or crystals or whatever.
Then you could bury it in the wilderness and run the input/output shafts up trees.
