dumb question

Hey all, I know this is a dumb question, but it is pretty rainy out today and I'm going shooting. I was wondering if this has any adverse affect on cap and ball shooting triple 7. I'm taking a cartidge gun along too, but wondering if I should leave the cap and ball at home until next week when we are back to our normal clear weather here. Anybody?

You will need to find a sheltered place to load your smokers. then protect the nipples until time to cap. Once capped you would have to submerge the gun to keep it from working.

thanks guys, I took it out and no problems. I was just unsure about the humidity, it's normally pretty dry here in Texas. Then again, the Civil War was fought during inclement weather, so that's what I meant about a dumb question, lol. I thought about that when I was shooting.

"Keep your powder dry." There was a reason for that saying . . .
