I like black powder pistols, can you fill me in on conversions? Can I use modern bullets? Or do I need to buy special loads?

Here is to get you started.
Buy a Black-powder revolver, can be order to your door (no FFL needed), depending where you live. Check your laws.
Then get a conversion kit or conversion cylinder (no FFL to purchase). Their not cheap. But better than dealing with a FFL. Depending on cylinder, no major tools needed. Get a drop-in.
Conversion kits, your need tools and some mechanical skills. Depends on which kit you buy.
<< Can I use modern bullets?>>
When you buy the cylinder, it will state what type of metallic cartridge to use, depending on caliber.
<< Or do I need to buy special loads?>>
See latter. Make sure you buy a steel B.P. revolver, NOT BRASS.
