I was given a box of old gun parts and some black powder stuff to get rid of for someone. I have done so, but remaining is a couple of thousand percussion caps in sizes 10, 11 and 12. Also a couple of hundred caps for musket. These have been in storage for 35 - 40 years.

I have not shot black powder on 30 or 40 years myself, so don't know if these have any value, but would be happy to give these to someone in the Houston area if it is worth it to you to come pick them up.

In Bellaire, just inside the loop

I'm sorry, what side of Houston is that. I live close to San Antonio, but, my son lives in Katy. He works downtown, though.

Google 'Bellaire, TX'. :)

Fair warning: those will be quite corrosive; they use mercury fulminate which results in very corrosive combustion byproducts. Not a problem using them UNLESS you don't clean promptly.

That was my first thought when I saw them. Rapid clean up is a must. Even living in Katy, that is not worth the drive for me.
