You should be able to find the powder locally. Look for a Black Powder club they can point you in the right direction. You can get the balls from any of the mail order shooting supply houses. I usually get mine from Midsouth Shooter's Supply. For patch material I use .017 thick pillow ticking that I get at a local fabric store. I wash it and then tear it into strips about an inch and a half wide. I then cut my patches at the muzzle as a I load my rifles. Rusty

A lot of department store chains have black powder supplies in their sporting goods section. You don't necessarily need to use genuine black powder either. "Pyrodex" is a modern equivelent that is safer to handle and shoots cleaner than black powder. It is easier to find in stores than black powder too. BTW, is this a reproduction derringer or an original? If you are unfamiliar with it I would have it checked out by a gunsmith first to make sure it is safe and determine a safe loading for it.

It is a reproduction that my father and I built many years ago and I just got it back [It was a kit BTW] It was shot then but not since and now that MY son is older Iam sure he would love to see that thing go BOOM thanks for the reply [):)]pg
