We do some mounted shooting.  One day I took my 1911 out with a snap cap and rode some patterns just to see what is was like.  I had three "accidental discharges."  That convinced me that I'll never try and carry a loaded 1911 mounted.  Or if I do it won't be drawn until I'm afoot!!! Smiley

There are several examples over the years of mounted soldiers shooting their own horse.  The CMSA rules are pretty strict on proper technique as are the rules at the National Cavalry Competition.  I've some international friends who, due to national rules in their home countries, are limited to using Airsoft pistols and revolvers.  Even they have reported "accidents" from time to time.

You can shoot off of any horse once.  But when working with horses one must always remember that Gravity is not just a Good Idea, it's The Law!!!  Smiley

With due respect, pards & pardettes, I tend to disagree...again.
These early G&U marked Uberti Navies and G&Gs in well maintained condition are rare.
I assume that their quantity is comparable to the early Belgian Centaures of that period, i.e. just a few 1,000s.
And like the Centaures probably less than 30 % survived of which less than only half might be in a reasonable condition.
Another underrated field for discoveries in my book.

Morning all.

I'm feeling better today, though my sinuses are definitely plugged.  That's okay, I guess.  I wasn't planning on any flights/mountain ascents. Roll Eyes

The magicians at NOAA are calling for a half inch of rain today, high of 45 with wind up to 10mph.

"That there is one damn fine coat you're wearin'."

Thanks, This buffalo coat is the warmest coat I've ever owned.  No matter how cold and windy it is, it never fails to keep me warm!

I'll chime in here , leaning on the Long John Wolf quote...

"I do not fully agree with this verdict regarding the collector's value interest ."

I modify it in the value is only what one might pay for it (  Huh well Duh ) what I mean is , it will never bring serious money..
maybe stupid money  Smiley
They sold in 1963 for around $59 .....today a new one with the Euro VS dollar, plus inflation retail ( not dealer) $250 (sale) -300. or bit higher. So that is the range you are in ....not very serious money  Undecided

No reason you should not tune it and shoot it .....

Gary Barnes aka Hoof Hearted is fine Smith or the Coffin Maker  (retired) but is known to still take on a interesting project or two.
these two , would be my first go to gents.

I do not fully agree with this verdict regarding the collector's value.
Particularly the early G&U marked Uberti percussion revolvers produced for or during the Centennial period of the Civil War are sought after by collectors.
Of course condition is an issue.
Production of G&U marked Ubertis started in 1959 for Navy Arms.
First models manufactured were the Colt 1851 Navy and its CS brass framed pendant Griswold & Gunnison. Later during the early 1960s the Remington NM 1963 Army followed at the request of Val Forgett of Navy Arms.
Dr. Jim Davis of RPRCA will hopefully chime in to add his expertise on the subject of collecting percussion replica revolvers.

Would that I could.  I purchased the rifle at an auction and in spite of my long term relationship with the company, and having a personal relationship with the employees and owner, they have a sacrosanct rule which prohibits releasing consignor information.  In this case, even if they would do it, it would do no good as the man who owned it has passed and I know he left no heirs, nor any documentation for his collection. 

This brings up something I encounter on a regular basis.  If you have anything in your collection which has a story attached to it, write it down, and have some organized filing system which will help those who follow to know what you had and the story behind it.  I regularly deal with family members who don't have a clue what dad or grandpa collected, where he got it, what he paid for it, and if there is any notable history that accompanies the piece. 

Just recently I assisted a family dispose of a military collection which occupied over 2000 sq ft of display area.  It was a lifetime collection and it was filled with some very historic pieces - items identified to a Flying Tiger Ace, two other WWII aces - the list was endless.  In this case, I had known the owner for some 20 years and was in a position to help them assemble the right paperwork with the right items, and to ferret out the sleepers in the collection that the owner had never gotten around to labeling.   

Its more common than not for collectors to leave little, if any, information behind.  Just the nature of the hobby, I guess.  But a little organization and record keeping can make the difference between a thoughtful inheritance and a nightmare.   

Just something to consider.

Best, Ken

I was just going back and looking at the topic title.  It mentioned CC. 
I assumed Classic Cowboy since this is basically a CAS, SASS, forum. 
It took me a minute to figure you meant Concealed Carry.  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
