I am new to this forum. I have been shooting full bore for many years on ranges and over land for pest control. Recently I have found myself target shooting pistols at home and really enjoy it. I am now thinking of getting a black powder revolver for target shooting. My aim is to shoot targets on the land I have permission to shoot. Dose any one know if the fire arms licensing allow the use of black powder pistols to be used over land for target shooting. Thanks for any help provided.

Not sure if there's anything preventing you getting one for use on your own land; some people have them conditioned for Humane dispatch of injured animals, not sure about target use. Where target shooting & zeroing on your own land merge I don't know!

One for your local FEO.
