Welcome and glad to have you. If I might ask what are the laws like there regarding percussion revolvers? Are they  treated like regular firearms or exempt from many laws like the are in the U.S.?

Thank's about warm welcome.Percussion weapons are not weapons according bulgarian law.These weapons sells free,without need any licence.But the paradox is that you can't buy legally black powder and cups from the gunshop.And you can't fire legally anywhere.Don't ask me why,pleace.????

We have equally stupid laws. Florida just passed one stating a breakfast pastry eaten in the shape of a gun isn't a firearm

Here stupid laws are something usual.But ,,dura lex sed lex'' as romas sed.But we bypass the law and make black powder our own.It's not so difficult.

A big welcome to you from California.

We will probably be making our own powder and percussion caps if things keep going as they are...
