The Ruger Old Army is a fine shooter. Inspired by the Remington but with coil springs in stainless.
If I was consistent at taking one monthly to the range to discharge the loaded cylinder, had some practice, then cleaned and reloaded, ( with pyrodex or triple seven ) then it would even be a solid choice for bedside pistol safe home defense use.
Sure, slow as molasses reloading and billows of smoke in the house, but the giant fireball is intimidating and the terminal ballistics are more than adequate for wild boar or any sub-500 lb. Critter.
The nice thing about muzzle loaders and percussion cap-fired pistols is that they ship direct to the house, and there are plenty of conversion cylinders available for the percussion-cap-fired black powder pistols that also ship directly to the house.
For maximum black powder fun, and still delivered to your door, maybe one of these, and you can fit a shoulder stock as well, no NFA silliness:
"The “1858 Remington” is a modern collector’s term for the Remington New Model Army. The Old Model started production in 1861 with the slightly improved New Model Army coming out in 1863. Uberti and Pietta are producing fine Remington style handguns, both authentic and unauthentic."
In NY you may have a pistol permit that does not permit concealed carry. Or one that does, it's all up to the local Sheriff.
My ( redacted) initially had a permit that allowed him to own & shoot a pistol, but not concealed carry. So the Pistol went in the trunk, or locked box in his truck, on the way from home to the range, for practice or competition. Then when he bought his third pistol, he "upgraded" to concealed carry just by specifying it on his new gun paperwork, and they gave it to him.
For Hunters, they can have a not concealed permit, and still hunt, provided they transport the weapon securely on the way to the hunt. Once you are hunting, it's just like at the range.
Most local deer hunters who use pistols either use their normal daily rig, if using a service pistol or smaller. Or they use a cross draw chest rig for large revolvers and pistols with scopes. Sometimes zipped under the jacket for weather protection. Or carry in hand. Many of the pistol hunters locally like Thompson-Center single shots in a wide range of caliber ( .357 magnum minimum ) and treat them like mini-rifles. I know a few who carry Cowboy rigs and use the good old .45 Colt or .44/40 Winchester.
Of course some go big and use the ultra-magnums, but I still see used .500 & .460 S&W Magnums in gun shops with a box of shells minus one cylinder full.
