Are black powder pistols worth carrying? Or- are they more trouble to operate, reload and so on...obviously I do not own one, but have a carry permit for my other stuff..

not really more trouble to operate then any other single action revolver. Reloading can be a pain and you have to carry spare cylinders with caps on the nipples if you want to swap cylinders once you used up the cylinder in the revolver. Good luck keeping the caps on the spare cylinders. They are cool to own though.

Can you carry a black powder pistol as a concealed-carry weapon without a permit?

Kind of bulky by accepted standards these days🤭 but it would put a nice hole in somebody if needed. Me, Iíll stick with my Rugsr LCP . Hits as hard as a cap n ball yet weighs as much and is the size of my cell phone.

The powder could absorb the moisture from the air/your body sweat, and cause misfires. I would not carry a black powder pistol. Unless the apocalypse was a few years back, I finally learned how to make my own black powder, and it was the only resort.

You talking about one of those antique style cap and ball pistols, that you load by dumping powder into the cylinder, and ramming a lead ball down?

The fastest reload is a second gun.

I can't speak for the OP, but I would assume he's meaning a black powder pistol with more "modern" cartridges, like a Colt M1889 revolver and its contemporaries, using brass cartridges loaded with black powder, as opposed to cap and ball pistols or muzzle loaders.

Where is the sense in this thread? Could you carry one? Sure. Why would you?
