Ya'll do realize that there are over 100 million ignition sources out there, just in propane BBQ grills alone, right? Add into that the untold number of Peizo Cigarette lighters...Click/Spark/Boom. 318 million population, 200 have grills, 150 have propane grills with electronic ignition, 100 mill or so..actually, factoring in the dopers, 250 mill have click lighters...Black Powder ignition is not a problem in any foreseeable future.

How about a primitive weapon that ruled the woods back in the BP days.. A bow and arrow.

I picked up a Bear Recurve at a gun show for $7.00. Wait until Wal-Mart has their "After Hunting Season" clearance sales and you can get arrows and some pretty gnarly broadheads pretty cheap as well.

And.. the arrows are easily found and reusable..

I keep a couple of targets in my back yard and my bow with some arrows is always by my back door. Step out, shoot a few as I walk to my shop.. Neighbors don't know anything is going on..

I've got 3 compound bows as well but, two of them are pretty old technology. One is definitely usable, just like the feel of that ole recurve a little more..

A Blunderbuss can also shoot round ball. For the correct powder load you need to know the caliber. Using abrasive projectiles will damage the bore in time. The shape of the muzzle has little effect on the spread of shot, the bell muzzle was for intimidation.
