CCW and SAA or BP

I wonder if anyone has taken a CCW and used a SAA or better yet a BP revolver? Is there any such restrictions? I've heard some courses don't allow cheap semi autos like Hi Points (although everyone I ever shot always went bang and hit the target). But I'm talking old school revolvers like a Colt 45 or a 44 caliber black powder pistol. That would raise some eyebrows.

i wouldnt feel at all undergunned or at a disadvantage with a SAA, Providing of course its a Transfere bar kind and i have 6 rounds instead of 5. As far as reloads, i have a second gun ill packk for that.

I've had a few people take the CCW course with me that used SAA guns. They did just fine.

Now, . . . I don't think you could talk me into that BP idea, . . . nahhhhh.

But the SAA, . . . I wouldn't have any problem with it, . . . use a 1911 for reload.

But for sure, . . . if I ever faced anyone with a SAA, . . . I would give him much more credit than the local gangbanger with a Glock. If the dude is confident (or crazy) enough to carry a SAA, . . . I've got to figure that his confidence factor is in the very high 90%'s, . . . and he probably knows what he is doing, . . .

May God bless,
If you can breathe, . . . thank God!
If you can read, . . . thank a teacher!
If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a Veteran!
