So which store or bank were you thinking of robbing?
Which black powder pistol were you thinking of using? Flintlock? Cap and ball? Black powder cartridge?
The old 18(03?) Charleville .69 cal. would be pretty intimidating. Imagine a store owner pulling one of those on you when you attempted a robbery.
