Depends on my mood. Sometimes a .22 - I like my Stevens 418 single shot most for that. Sometimes my grand-dad's old 16g SxS. I killed my first squirrel with that a long time ago.

And sometimes my...

Thanks for the link. A buddy has a brass frame one he's willing to sell, so I'll buy that if I can't find a steel frame one. I've got an 1858 NMA, so I don't need another .44. But, really, I believe...

Very cool collection! The WWII era is the last period (most modern?) of firearms I find appealing, but boy are they something special. You're gonna need a BAR, though.

Given a Westminster location, I'd suggest AGC. It has enough facilities of each type to give him good exposure and one of the safest clubs I've seen.

Ruger No. 1 Straight wall cartridge options

I use a BACO 535g Money bullet for my Sharps. If the Pedersoli Hi Wall has the same barrel (1-16" twist) that would probably work well.

If yours is anything like mine, it'll prefer a .459 or .460 bullet. Out past 150-200 yds, mine really needs a heavy bullet - 500+ grains.

So, just to clarify, it sounds like the OP is looking at a gun with exposed hammers, right? If so, rebounding hammers are very normal.
