Percussion = Less trouble to shoot ( No misaligned / damaged flint :( )
Flinter..........Everyone should have one flinter, great fun!

My flinter = a Le Page, expensive but Oh so nice.

If you already have a percussion single shot pistol then the flinter is the one to seriously consider for the sake of the experience of shooting it....like Duncan says. If you have neither, get the percussion first.
