STORM / Re: New Dragoon

Gotta agree on the 2nd Model Dragoon. Grip feels good, I like the square back trigger guard and visually the gun looks nicely proportioned.  The weight dampens recoil without being excessive. Big as it is, it stills "feels" like a Colt in your hand. I occasionally use my pair of 2nd Models at Cowboy shoots and don't need a chiropractor at the end of the day.

Crow Choker, I have to agree with everything you said. I also had a T/C Hawken(foolishly sold) and was disappointed when production was stopped. I was also not happy when T/C's custom shop, Fox Ridge Outfitters, was closed. Hope whoever purchases the company is interested in getting back more "traditional" customers.

Have you checked with S&S? Sometimes they have parts that aren't listed in their catalog.

Also you might post this in the Barracks.

+1 pictures would help

I have absolutely no objections to trade blankets

How about loin cloths "commando style"?  ( not that I am personally considering!)

Funny that we all get similar youtube recommendations.    I watched this on Friday and cringed when he loaded it.   I did enjoy the shooting as I have been fascinated with pepperboxes since watching Rooster Cogburn. 
"I got me a pepperbox here.  This thing shoots 6 times, sometimes all at once.   It is called a Lady's Companion.  That's what it'll be when I'm gone.  In Fort Smith, there is a sportin' lady named Big Faye.  She was shot twice with this thing, but she dressed out at 290 so none of the bullets found their way to the vitals.  But against ordinary people it gives good service."
I have one (2 actually, but 2nd one is mainly for parts) of the Classic Arms kit guns, not good and not a double action.   I also have this one.   It was made in Spain and called a Goldrush pepperbox.  It is 22 and my problem now is finding balls to fit it.  I did find that most of my caps drag as it is shot, but working on finding better fitting ones.   I had planned on shooting it at the NCOWs double action side match 2 weeks ago, but had to leave early and was worried a bit about the cap drag.   I am still on the look out for a reasonable priced original that is in shooting condition, and/or one of the Hoppes kit ones from the 70s.    Mine loads well and caps easily with a straight capper.   Issue is remembering which is the empty barrel to not cap.

 :)  PLUS ONE to Major 2  >:(

This guy is an IDIOT.  A scraggly beard, Aussie bush shirt and hat do not an authority make.  I also noticed everything in his Possibles Bag, including the Bag, are new.

I find it annoying, as soon as some fool learns to post a video, they suddenly think they have become an educator and expert.  Expert - Noun - Ex=a has been;  Spert = a drip under pressure.

Working on long-range Krag loads to shoot to the sights.

'Tis 38 and overcast. High of 55. Slight change of showers.
