    Because it is a fire arm, the firing pin does not make it, the gun powder and the killing ability also makes it a deadly weapon.
    You can fight this in court, but I doubt the court will see the difference

    Sorry, Padre, I spoke to my husband about this earlier, he is a master gunsmith with a huge gun shop in West Tenn.

    As I answered you previously Myred85, you are allowed to have a muzzleloader/black powder gun. Felons are not allowed to have a handgun, rifle, or shotgun. The purchase of a muzzleloader does not require a NICS background check as does the purchase of other firearms.
