My question to you is, from a historic standpoint, how late in the century do you think the cap n balls became relics in the minds of the gun-totin' citizenry? Would they have still been in common use?
The famous gun writer Elmer Keith started shooting hand guns in the late 1890's early 1900's. he started with cap and ball revolvers and commented that many of the 'old timers' still used the cap and ball as their primary revolver.
