my new BP guns

I have just recently aquired this cva .50 cal percussion cap rifle and pietta 1858 .44 cal army and have had a blast shooting them. I go through far less rounds than when shooting my mosin and its like fishing it is more laid back and relaxing. I'm lucky that I have a local range owned by a muzzle loading club that has monthly shoots and members can use the range any time. So my son and I have been working twards membership and they are a great resource for information etc.

Colt 1860. It just feels right.

Yup, this is what drove me to black powder, too.

I will say that you can definetely go through more rounds in the revolver.

Glad you are enjoying your new acquisitions! Welcome to the realm of holy black!
