kicking around the idea of getting a black powder revolver to fart around with after Christmas.
Is black powder and percussion caps as hard to get ahold of as smokeless stuff these days?
To make something simple is a thousand times more difficult than to make something complex.
Midway is probably the best place to start looking.
Track is expensive on the BP because the minimum order is 25lbs.
I did not find BP hard to get a few months ago, it was hard to find a decent price. The shipping costs / hazmat fees are not pleasant.
You have to be home to sign for the package...
I'm not sure what the market looks like right now. I haven't been looking any more.

The 1861 Navy has some improvements over the 1851 model, but I like both. Very well balanced revolvers.
But that is a pretty setup!
