I prefer traditional black powder guns. I own a .50 inline, a 12gauge inline and an ROA. Love em. They do what I ask em to do, most of the time. But I do prefer sidelocks. Also, I really enjoy the 1858 and 1851. My percussion .54 is my baby. She aint pretty and she is not super accurate past 50 or so yards. I've yet to buy a flint lock. But its on the short list. I just love traditional style weapons. Shooting black powder guns is a passion. Cartridge guns are tons of fun, but I find myself using traditional black powder guns more. Nothing can compare to building a load, testing it, and seeing the results through a cloud of smoke made by a gun that's been in use for over 150 years.
