LOL Rifleman never pulls any punches. Well I will say each to his own. But a better pic might let us appreciate it more. My thing with short cap and ball pistols is, they don't need any more help cutting down on velocity. The long barrel on them helps with more than accuracy. With that said I own a 5.5" barreled NMA, and I know full well what it gives up in the velocity dept.
