Anyone buy percussion caps at a gunshow? Miwall or other vendor? The Ventura show is coming up and I need caps. hazmat > fee, parking & gas. Caps and black powder require two hazmat fees at $25 each. I know there is no BP at the show.

Black powder, yes. But I have yet to find percussion caps at gun shows. I usually get #10 & #11 caps from Turners or Bass Pro Shop.

I remember seeing primers at most shows, but can't remember if there were caps too. I'm sure if you look hard enough you will find some vendor who brought them, even if they weren't supposed to.

There is a vendor at all Ventura shows that sells black powder supplies. I bought percussion caps from him.
