So I was thinking if I should add a black power rifle to my collection of weapons. Any thoughts on this good or bad!

Unless you're using a flintlock and are prepped to make your own black-powder it doesn't make much sense for SHTF.
If you want it anyway, that's a whole different story...

That said, one of the things on my list is to get a flintlock and learn to make black powder. I am set up to be able to make several thousand rounds of modern ammo, but in a teotwawki, it would be good to not have to rely on those supplies forever.
There is no way I can make modern primers or smokeless powder. A flintlock and black powder would be more sustainable.
