1. They make it look fun.
I spent many hours sighting in hunting weapons back in the day.

It isn't as simple as buying a gun off the shelf. Black powder muzzle loaders especially require lot of time and a delicate touch. A few grains too much powder and accuracy goes off. Everything is accuracy. And accuracy isn't only determined by the hand behind the trigger, the gun must be carefully sighted in. See, gun sights are adjustable. I have never seen an accurate gun straight from the factory.

Ever shot a gun, No Elephants?
