    That or start voting for pro-2A candidates to eliminate the deep state gun control that raises much of the costs for the producers, shippers, and retailers.

    That and deep state gun control as anti-gun politicians appoint anti-gun bureaucrats to raise hazmat fees on gunpowder. Local officials will make zoning codes more and more restrictive so that many retailers can't sell gunpowder nor caps.

    How Do I Get Rid of Old Percussion Caps?

    BP fowling is corrosive too. Guns are supposed to be cleaned and oiled at the end of the day before they're put away.

    You are not going to find a production gun that looks like that, but you can buy a kit from Pedersoli or InvestArms and make it exactly like that.
