Percussion Pistol Links
We labored over the decision whether or not to establish a LINKS page for our Baconfirearms
site. Although we are an educational, non-profit website, we felt that we should provide specific
links that would assist you in learning about percussion pistols and the collection of related items.
The sites that we list are sites from whom we have bought quality items; or they are educational
sites that advance one's knowledge of our past.
