    Shannon757,

    This poor guy reregistered as Shpud2 and unfortunately his recent suicide is being discussed in After Hours.
    Would it be fitting to start a new Flight Radar thread without him as the initiator.
    Cheers

    Black powder is complex. I'm involved with a group that does 1798 reenactment displays, which is slightly different to normal use in that we're not firing a shot load.



    Effectively, a smooth bore muzzle loader needs a shotgun licence, so it will come down to if the local superintendent deems you an acceptable risk for one. Your other problem will be finding a source of percussion caps, there are very few sources of supply in Ireland, and getting them shipped in from outside the country will be problematic because of the shipping rules relating to ammunition and dangerous goods.


    Your best bet will be to make contact with a registered firearms dealer near you, and see if they have any involvement or interest,



    Hope that helps

    Hi Irish Steve.
    I see you posting about Black Powder Percussion Caps and I had to ask, what is the story with Black Powder rifles in Ireland. Can they be bought, licenced and most importantly fired?
    I would love to get involved in Black Powder shooting but I think I would have to emigrate.
    Regards.
    James.
