Greetings JBPTom and welcome aboard

Are you curious about California gun laws as they apply to black powder guns, or do you want recommendations/comments about specific guns?

Tom, you're in luck. Generally, California residents may purchase black powder guns without the paper work and waiting period required for a conventional firearms purchase. Also, a mail/web-order can be sent directly to you without having to go through a licensed dealer.

More good news… Arguably, the best first BP revolver, the 1858 Remington New Army (http://www.cabelas.com/product/1858-New-Army-44-Caliber-Revolver/731695.uts?Ntk=AllProducts&searchPath=%2Fcatalog%2Fsearch.cmd%3Fform_state%3DsearchForm%26N%3D0%26fsch%3Dtrue%26Ntk%3DAllProducts%26Ntt%3Dremington%2B1858%26x%3D0%26y%3D0&Ntt=remington+1858) replica, is now on sale at Cabelas.

You came to the right place.

I have no knowledge on California gun laws.

If you post photos and descriptions of the weapons you have, you could get a fairly accurate value from several of the guys on the forum. You may then want to put them on the Gunbroker.com with a price that is reflective of the things the guys are saying.
