I really appreciate the advice and taking the time to answer some questions.  Being brand new to this, what is a conversion?  Is it a black powder converted to a cartridge gun?  I like the big boom but not sure how much I'd shoot it once I had it if it's a chore to load and I did read something where a lot of the Rangers would use a piece of rawhide and make a loop that could be slid back and forth to hold the loading rammer in place.

The weight doesn't bother me since I'm a pretty good sized guy and carrying it wouldn't be likely.  I like my SAA's too much. 

I also saw where Cabela's has a kit for $359.  I think I'd enjoy assembling the kit but not sure about finishes.  Are there some decent finishes that can be put on the gun at home?  I'll take a look at the 1851 and 1860.

You'd be most welcome over on the OT BB , if Hoof or the good General wanted to transfer this post.... Smiley

I'll offer my insight & 2 cents , having shot C&B & conversions forever  Smiley

The Walker is the biggest bad-est of the lot, but with it comes some things that might detour you....

1. it's weight just over 5 pounds loaded, is less desirable as a holster carry gun , pretty healthy tug on your gun belt all day
2. The hefty loading rammer, has the early design spring keeper, rather that later( Dragoon) design catch... it has a penchant to drop down on each recurring shot  ...annoying !

Course these are work a rounds.... but , for a new comer ... be just enough to sourer the experience.

I'd recommend, a 51 Navy in 36 cal. ( skip the never was 44  ) or my personal favorite the 1860 Army ...both saw extensive use in The ACW and the WEST ...  and by all means skip these in brass frame

Both are great holster carry pieces, Newt carried a 51 Navy , and Pea eye had a Richards conversion ( Lonesome Dove connection )

Get yourself a powder flask , ( skip the plastic starter one )  a Slim Jim holster and I believe , you'll enjoy the experience, then when your hooked and ready ..get your Walker....
Oh, and expect to want a Henry to go with them  Wink

both Dr. Licence & CWC permit are renewed by mail ... tag(s) and the decal too, can be as well ... but both my cars are the same month
(tied in to my birthday)... but you can also get them either at the DMV or the Tax Collector office if you rather.
I think you get the decals 5 years in row for the same Tag , then a new tag & decal the 6 year.
and only one tag is needed , no front tags required....
The Tax collector has offices in St. Cloud ( and Kissimmee ) and seldom more than a 3 -5 person wait.

Florida did away with auto inspections 35 or more years a go  Smiley   

Have a roast in the big Red one w/ carrots, onions & taters.

your Kids seemed to love it, course anything that out of the norm and got you out of the class was well received.

I looked at the array of hot glue guns at Wally-World the other day.  I got overwhelmed by the variety.  Looks like they break down from baby size to industrial heavy duty, hot hot, cold hot and hot and cold hot, big stick and little stick, long and short stick and colors.  Would I just use it to glue in top cards or would I find other uses? Too many choices.   I'll need to think on it a bit more.  Roll Eyes
