People, This seems the perfect place to ask. I am looking into getting into blackpowder shooting. Antique handguns. Maybe rifles. Here in Sweden these are license-free for pre-1890 and seem like a lot of fun. What should be my first gun? What should I think about? I am going to join a gun club. A friend at work shoots airguns. He doesn't know much about this tho. I know nothing. Total newbie. I mean, I am thinking maybe a Colt 1862, Manhattan, Cooper, ??? Any reasonable price range is fine. I want something reliable that shoots and doesn't explode. Good bang for the buck (nonintended pun.) Looking at Swedish sites. Overpriced. But dunno what to look for. Can probably import. Will check with law enforcement/customs. Oh and sorry for just dropping in like this after years (as I always do.) I'm fine, completely overworked, have friends, have sex, pretty decent overall. Happy Christmas! Oh and I'm designing some miniature crossbow models at work for fun. Will get back to you on that progress if anything pretty materializes. Just made a cannon.
