Another difference is most box stores at least used to actually let you walk out with it instead of needing the clerk/manager to carry it out and hand it to you outside the door.

Someone in law enforcement opened my eyes to the fact that you can legally conceal carry a black powder pistol,because they arent considered firearms

This has been covered numerous times here, so you might want to be careful taking this advice. I'm no lawyer, and neither are a lot of law enforcers. But all judges are. To paraphrase a previous comment - If you want to take a chance on doing a term and losing your 2A rights forever, at least conceal carry something more effective than a BP pistol.

Absolutely run away fast.

Various "antique gun" loopholes were the obsession of an emotionally disturbed former MDS member "he who shall not be named", now deceased.

Here is one thread in which he argues with a lawyer, who at one point tells him,

Just forget about such loopholes, and let the delusional rest in peace.

Yes. That is not good ground for a legal battle.

Back on point: I bought my BP revolver online and had it shipped to my house. All quite legal. BP are not considered firearms. The opposite side of the coin, they are also not eligible for the state pre emption of local regulations. I treat my BP firearms the same as all my regulated firearms when it comes to carry, transport, etc.

No , you may *NOT* Conceal a Black Powder/ Antique ! It still falls under the classification of Dangerous Weapon .

Dangerous Weapons may not be carried with intent to ( do bad things , some variation in case law for exact definitions ) . Dangerous Weapons may NOT ever be concealed .

They can be carried with similar parameters as lets say , a rifle or samauri sword . ( Flashback to discussions about LGOC wisdom, take those as starting point , and ratchet up from there .)

**************************

And for general enlightenment , different Statutes have different definitions . In certain contexts , Antiques/ replicas are non-firearms . But for Use of Firearm in crime of Violence , various flavors of Assault , etc , they are .
