    Just a note of my first test of system in wet weather. Returned from weekend of inspecting timber on estate back in Louisiana. We had over 18 hours of solid, constant, precipitation. Camped out all weekend. Was out walking with caplock revolver in a flap-over holster, directly under left arm, for approximately 8 hours in constant mist or drizzle, to say nothing of wet leaves, grass, bushes, etc. Changed to dry clothes twice. 24 hours later all 6 cylinders shoot right off the bat. The caplock system with tight-fitting # 10 caps, wonder wads, and grease-over-the-balls all sheathed in the flap-over holster can work just fine in wet weather! (don't know how re-loading would have gone however)

    Sounds good. Glad you didn't have to try it in combat conditions. :)
