Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Percussion cap shortage

Any one know why percussion caps are damn near impossible to find especially Remington. My local gun shop did have CCI in stock so I'm picking up 10 tins on Fri. I would have preferred Remington. No one has them in stock. I just bought a Pietta 1851 Navy Yank.

Maybe because they are used in guns

that are ‘off the books’ and if it comes

down to it, you can make Black Powder,

and cast your own bullets...

During the last cap shortage, I discovered the Dynamit Nobel caps. Damned if I don't like them way better than CCI or Remington. Way more consistent and seem to burn hotter. I was buying them at Sportsman's Warehouse, but haven't seen them lately.

Finding caps easy enough here.
It's the damned powder that is hit and miss around here.
Got 5 tins of caps both Remi and CCI, but on my last jug of
FF, and half jug of FFF.

Since cap and ball pistols are considered antiques and not firearms felons can and do carry them and use black powder rifles. That’s a loophole you never hear libs cry about.

I posted a video long ago and far away or was it a galaxy far anyway some ex-con was ‘splaining that he could conceal carry a cap and ball revolver and had a Hawken in the backseat of his truck and the cops can’t do shit because in his state and presumably federally they aren’t firearms. Drug dealers were after him, maybe he’s dead.

Anyway that was some random ahole’s story on YouTube.
