    Assuming the OP has no choice. What other reason would he even consider BP?

    If you have other options, OP, BP is a BAD IDEA. I usually keep a .45 handy, but

    I get out the 12 gauge coach gun, when I'm having abandonment issues...

    No problem with black powder going off. Firearms that date back to the civil war have been found and discharged when fired. Now as to BP as a defense weapon. A 44 walker has 6 shots in the cylinder. A 44 walker is very powerful and will kill almost anything that walks talks or flies. If you need more than one shot 6 more probably wont help.

    Wouldn't go with BP if was putting it in a firearm. 'Course it would work just fine in home made hand grenades or claymores, theoretically speaking, of course.

    I think if the law allows stick with a 12 gauge pump it just works!

    You could but why? There are much better options out there, and if you know where to look you can get them for under $100. Nothing against BP, but for home defense, just why?
