Someone had one at the range the other day and let me shoot it. It was an inexpensive one but looked nice.

I haven't fired it in years. My brother bought it new in mid to late '70s, bought the holster at the same time. I have three other black powder single shot pistols; two .36 and a .45.
I've got plenty of round balls and black powder, I just need to make time to shoot (and clean) them.

.36s


.45

I like single shots too, but I suspect that I am way better at shouting them than I ever could be building one, much less designing one.

What a talent you have!

Looking at your picture; is that the hammer under the barrel? Pull it down (which cocks it) put a cap on the nipple and pull the trigger?

I use Windex in a spray bottle at the range to get 99% of the gun clean and leave the mess and smell there and then when I get home I complete the cleaning and oil it up .

Thanks... I was gonna get around to asking how much cleaning typically takes place at the range after shooting, or how much time I'd have after packing up and leaving before cleaning the beastie later at home.

I shoot black powder long guns for muzzleloader hunting season and I swab the bore between each shot for accuracy at the range. When I get back home I break down the muzzleloader and give it a thorough cleaning with solvent or hot water depending on what I shoot and then wipe it down and swab the bore a generous amount of oil. I like Ballistol as it neutralizes salts. When I used to use a Muzzleloader that didn't breakdown and I had a small plastic bottle with a tube that fit over the nipple. I would put solvent in the bottle and hook it up and the act of drawing back on the patch would pull the solvent thru the nipple and into the bore. Worked pretty slick. Never cleaned a BP revolver but imagine it would require the same level of care.

I think the answer to your question is when you get back home is fine for cleaning, tomorrow morning could be problematic.

I use Instant Cream of Wheat for filler between bullet and powder and grease on front of cylinder to keep fouling soft . I can normally shoot all day without cleaning the bore . I use a rag to wipe the outside of gun between loading the cylinder . .I only clean the bore at the end of a match or long lay over like lunch breaks
