I got to fire my new piece last week. It was nasty, temp around 40 and a light rain coming down steady. I didn't plan on going so I didn't load up the cap and ball cylinders ahead of time. My wife gave me a second cylinder for Christmas, so double the fun. When we got to the firing point, I started loading one of the cap and ball cylinders but my hands were so stiff that it took me five minutes to load two cylinders out of the six and gave up. For the first time since 1995 I got to shoot something. We all forgot to bring targets, and there was only one there to shot at. The first shot aimed center mas and hit the target on the center line and just off the right shoulder. I was impressed. None of the guys I was with saw a black power pistol shoot so they were all watching. After that they all started shooting at the same target so I don't know if I even hit it. I loaded the conversion cylinder and shot twelve rounds at some junk laying around. But it was useful to get familiar with it. It was a hoot for sure! I checked the local state range out and bought a permit to shoot there, so I can see what I can do.
