    Glad to have you here. I am not sure however that a black powder rifle is a great choice for personal protection. Fun as hell to shoot though.:D Enjoy the site and its tons of info.

    If you want black powder, get a bp handgun, they don't have to go through the NICS check. Plenty of people can testify - if they could speak - that a bp handgun is still effective as a personal defense weapon....
