If I was using a cap and ball pistol for home defense the first thing I would do is have 4 or 5 of them on a bandolier (pirate style :-)) , but I'd also shoot them fairly often to keep fresh powder and ball loaded. Don't know about the time frame as I've never known anyone that kept one loaded and ready, but it probably would have a lot to do with the conditions they're stored in. A good dessicant in a fairly airtight container would probably let you go a couple weeks at least.
