There is no revolver shooting in the world as fun as a cap and ball pistol. I would add one note of caution while you start shooting these hand cannons.
If you are going to shoot Pyrodex P in them, be scrupulous in the cleaning. I nearly lost two of mine. Pyro leaves a hard residue in the edges of the grooves and over time it can attract moisture and start rust and pitting. I have found that if I overdo the cleaning with a lot of vigorous brushing I won't have a problem. I use Cascade dishwasher soap(good wetting agents) and hot water, I clean them, rinse them, clean them again with a clean brush and lots of brushing, then rinse again, dry and oil. I never leave one more than a month without inspecting the bore and back of the cylinders.
Have fun, you've got a couple good ones to start with.
