Welcome Pnolans!!!! You've come to the right place. I tell you I have been shooting since I was probably about 4 years old. Only got into B.P. shooting a few years back. By far it is the most fun form of firearms. You are essentially a hand loader and thats the fun part of it all. Lots of good folks here. And our resident 1860 Colt promoter will be along shortly to recommend a cap n ball revolver for you to buy!!
