I live in the central CA coast area near San Luis Obispo, having moved here from Southern CA a few years ago. I've recently started playing around with black powder - a Ruger old army and a Pieta 1851. None of my local shops stock any kind of black powder, and the biannual gun show only carries 777, which is what i've been using. Many of the posts on this forum sing the praise of real black powder so I'm anxious to try some. I travel up and down the coast from San Diego to San Francisco on various kinds of personal business. I'm interested in learning of shops where I can buy the real thing in coastal CA.
