So, doing some research online, I think I may have just discovered that I am legally allowed to buy a black powder revolver here in CA. I was going to when I first turned 18, but the people at my local gun store, which is literally named Tacti-Cool told me I must be 21 to purchase any handgun, including black powder antique replicas. I just read up on ca law however, and I think I have discovered this is not the case. I read that black powder weapons are not considered firearms in terms of buying and transfer law, and the age requirement is only 18. Also, I read that they do not need to be transferred through an ffl. If anybody knows for sure can you let me know? People on other forums have stated they just ordered online form Cabelas or such and the pistol was mailed right to their home. I am really excited about this. I am a history junkie/major and I have wanted a blackpowder gun ever since I could remember. Does anyone have any reccomendations on an affordable BP revolver? I was eyeing the traditions 1851 colt navy revolvers online.
