Here's my Uberti 1849 Pocket.



And here's the same gun with faux ivory grips. 



I've been looking at different conversion cylinder options and will probably go with a Kirst, when they become available again.  :)

Howdy Pards,

After a year of having hardly any time to think of guns cuz work's been crazy I picked up a Remington 1875 from EMF this week.  Going out to the back yard and try it out right after this post :)

Here it is with some 24 gr backyard loads of fffg and flax seed filler with JP200's.  Everything seems right with it, cant wait to shoot it.

EDIT:  I wasn't exactly ready but because EMF isn't going to offer them anymore I grabbed the second.

I shoot a matched pair of USFA's in 44-40, 7.5" (first ones to ever go north of the 49th) 'n' a pair of 1858 Remington C&B. Got a '73 Winchester from Uberti in 44-40, a Brazilian 20 Ga, 'n' a old Belgium 12 Ga  open hammer.

Ain't none of 'em ever tasted nothin' but Holy Black!

P.S. I'm too lazy to post pictures - ya wanna see 'em, go look 'em up!

These are my Colts
The first step of becoming a good shooter is knowing which end the bullet comes out of and being on the other end.

A few new photos.  Not to much new happening other than my shoulder stocked Dragoon.
The 2nd and 3rd gen collection.


cased sets and strange things.






I remember when EMF offered the long barreled Dragoon with the shoulder stock, they also offered it in a set with a standard length and Sheriffs length barrel. I emailed them about it and nobody at EMF remembered it. It was in the mid eighties...

Grapeshot,
A pair of handsome pistols.  You are right to be proud. 

I prefer Army grips as well, I'm curious, do you have large hands?

This is my primary black powder double.  It's a Rossi 12 gauge I bought back in 1983.  It has seen a lot of action and still locks up tighter than a drum.
