    My son-in-laws family and I went to Heartland Outdoors at Edmond, OK Saturday. I introduced them to the mighty Colt's Walker. I think the third shooters "WOW!" pretty much sums it up.:D

    I shoot at Bud's new indoor range often and they also allow black powder on them as well. But then they have a ventilation system that you can park a semi in the exhaust ducts on. They even have a drive in indoor range for police etc, where they can set the lighting to the time of day or weather conditions and work from their cars. Kind of neat however not often seen by the general public from my understanding.

    Yeah that's nice to be able to shoot indoor bp like that,I guess they all dont allow it though.If I had an indoor range,I would at least have a section with that powerful ventilation to where people could do that.

    Black powder is organic! It's good for you.

    I've been to three different indoor ranges in the OKC area, and all three allow black powder.

    Although I got told at H&H that only one of the bays were for BP, by one of the employees. He also told me I couldn't load anywhere but at the firing line. I tried to explain to him I wasn't loading, just charging, and I wouldn't cap until I was at the firing line. He couldn't grasp the concept, so I didn't argue with him. After finishing up, I found a manager, told him what had happened, and he said he'd have an instructional talk with the employee. He also told me all the bays were open to BP.
