Maybe I should throw my hat in the ring too. I got two 51 navies, a Walker, a RM 51, a RM 60 in .44 colt and a navy gripped, nickle plated open top in .44 colt. Does that qualify me? ;)

Do not know if I qualify for this forum.  I have 2 army '60's percussion that I am in the process of converting.  Have completed one, waiting on the 2nd one, conversion parts (backorder). I have not shot these as main match revolvers, have always used the '73's all Uberti's.  The armies (Pietta's) I have had for a long time, I saw this forum and started seeing folks conversions and I thought, I can do that, plus it will give me more pistols to shoot... laugh.  So if I do not qualify... I will come back after I convert my 2nd army.  I have not seen anyone where I shoot, use percussions that have been converted. We have a couple of pokes who shoot them in black powder, but no conversions.  In fact I have only seen one member who shoots sometimes with a '72 open top.  So when mine are converted and I use them...maybe others will also.

This is a sickness, I can feel it in my bones but . . .alas, I had no cure for the assuagement of my fever other than entering into this madness.  

Being an impractical person, I chose the 1860 Richard Mason conversion (Army) in .44 Colt for my very first Cowboy Action weapon.  It is far too pretty to be handled by mere humans.  Anyway, I assume this warrants membership in this grand assemblage of like-afflicted individuals?  I do hope so, I am always looking for a new group of cornered folks to tell all my lies to.

I chose the eight inch projectile conveyance as it would bring me in closer proximity to any targets and when I miss, I can pistol whip the targets to the dirt much more effectively.  

Yours,

Mean Bob

Same here, wanted one since my dad took me to a gun show and explained them to me about 4.5 decades ago.  I just think the lines of the 1860 are so elegant; but, the cap and ball revolvers, while a hoot, are meant for people with more patience than I myself am in possession of. 

Really want an open top .45 next.

Well here is my plan And I figgured this out by myself . I started with the 72 Open Top in .44 Colt's ,but I need a .38 in the 1851 navy with 5-1/2 barrel. Then I can get the one I realy like the best, the Richards& Mason transition mdl. Army grip in .44 Colt's .Could not start with that one ,heck then I would have had no reason to buy the others .  Sounds like a plan.....Dusty.

Howdy Gus, pleased to meet you.  Sounds like a nice mess of sidearms.  Looking at a .38 now myself . . .the '51 pattern although I would take the OT.

Cheers pard!

Hello folks,
By the way, as you can see, this is my first post; just joined.
I think I may qualify for the STORM Group.
I'm just starting Cowboy Action Shooting, and for now I'll use my Ruger New Vaqueros.
By accident, I started to collect some STORMs.
I have 2 Pietta 1851 Navies, .44 and .36; and an Uberti 1851 Navy in .36.
As for the cartridge open tops, I have an Uberti RM 1851 Navy with 7.5" barrel in .38; an Uberti RM 1860 Army with 5.5" in .38; an Uberti Open Top Early Model with 5.5" barrel in .38; a Cimarron Firearms (Uberti) 1851 Navy Man With No Name with 7.5" barrel in .38.
I decided to stick with .38 as I have a bunch of .357s anyway.
Bdr Bob
