Re: Percussion Cap Loading Tool
A straight line capper works just fine, but needs to be sheltered from moisture. I often used a piece of thick leather tied to the trigger guard with a couple of holes punched in it the right size for percussion caps to friction fit into each hole. I eventually sewed a small extra piece of leather on my horn shoulder strap for the in line capper to slide into, the way a knife slides into a sheath. It was always there at the same place. The oiled leather protected it from rain and sparks.
