My dad is gifting me his 1970s Thompson Center hammer action rifle and that got me searching for supplies in anticipation. Unfortunately, that has led me to discover what many of you are already grappling with: No. 11 percussion caps are incredibly scarce right now.

I'm wondering if anyone knows of shops in the wider Portland area that might carry them? Whether that's smaller shops that might have some sitting on a shelf, or big retailers who occasionally get them in stock. I'm not looking to hoard a ton of them, just hoping to get enough to practice with the gun this summer and then take it deer hunting this fall.

Thanks!

Thanks for the replies, I'll check out these options!

Didn't know there's a whole muzzleloading emporium in Springfield, very cool. And making my own caps looks like a nice project for an alternative in a pinch.
