Silly, a blackpowder revolver vs a Hi Point 9mm.
Hi point costs around $100 US where a blackpowder you claim is 200 to 300...
Hi Point uses modern tested cartriges, other does not, it uses messy volatile black powder.
It takes a bit of doing to reload a bp revolver, a Hi Point, just takes a mag reload.
There are MANY other things that could be pointed out about how terrible a BP weapon truly is but I think you got the point.
If not, my tirade is to keep folks on the right track.
BTW, I have been using wheelweights since before you were born, soft lead has always fouled up barrels.
tin, lead, antimony is the key to a perfectly hardened bullet not what style wheel weight.
Black Powder is a horrible choice for self defense, but use what you got if you need to I guess.
To clear something up, you CAN use black powder in modern guns, you CANNOT use many modern powders in BP guns however, they are just not built to
handle the extreme pressures.
