Default Tactical Black Powder Assault Rifle???

Ok, so this idea got stuck in my head recently. I have tens of thousands of rounds of ammo and even reloading supplies. But if, and I'm not saying it's likely, but if a real, long term melt down of society happened at some point even my ammo supply would run out. Then what? It's next to impossible to make the type of gunpower (smokeless powder) that we use today. I have books on making actual blackpowder and it's not that hard. Also I'm building a small forge so casting bullets would be no big deal.

So my thought is that I need some black powder solutions. But I would want the best rate of fire that I could achieve and that means revolvers. In my head I was picturing something like this ...

But I haven't been able to find anything. I found images of these...

and this...

I admit, this is kind of out there, but black powder guns are fairly cheap enough. I wouldn't mind having one or two as a back up solution.
