Has anyone used a cap and ball revolver to hunt with and what did you get? Small game or Deer?
There are hundreds of millions of gun owners in this country, and not one of them will have an accident today. The only misuse of guns comes in environments where there are drugs, alcohol, bad parents, and undisciplined children. Period. Ted Nugent
DNR only has limits on minimum cal. and barrel length and they even count the length of the cylinder as part of the barrel on revolvers. I have Remington Army and would carry it only to finish off a deer in the event my rifle shot didn't do the job. Must take that back... Must be a center fire cartridge of more then .22 cal.
Never hunted deer with one. But have hunted groundhogs with a Navy model 36 Cal. on many occassions just for fun. Did good job and was a blast! "" I suppose you could hunt deer with the 44 cal Black Powder Revolver is your state law permits it. I have a 44 New Army but never hunted with it. I guess I have never checked on that in Tennessee! But probably would still use my Thomson Hawken 50 Cal Rifle for deer.
When I was a kid, I knew an old man who had his grandfather's Colt .36 cal handed down from the War of the Southern Rebellion. He used it as a wall-hanger in his nursery office and for shooting bunnies stealing nibbles from his nursery stock. It worked well but Ive never had to do that.
