Hello folks,
I think I may qualify for the STORM Group.
Bdr Bob


Hope to shout you qualify.  Nice to meet you, and always nice to have another Bob around to class the place up some.

Hope I may become a member here...
My name's Jordan Goodwin, I go by Capnball on most forums (yeah, I know-original, ain't it?). Some of y'all may remember me. I'm also a member of the SSS, as I owned a .56-50 Scpencer Carbine at one time (sold it out of necessity, WANT ANOTHER eventually). I am an ACW reenactor, blackpowder nut, and amateur BP gunsmith and BPC reloader. I'm not into CAS- yet. ;D Maybe when the budget gets a little more loose. I absolutely love anything that goes BOOM and makes plenny o' smoke. I've owned numerous repros of Colt's Revolving Pistols, from Walkers to Pockets, and love them all. Unfortunately, I'm so poor, I've always had to trade for the next one, so to speak. Anywho, I think my favorite all-around holster gun is the 1860 Army, followed by the Dragoons and Walker. One thing: I've never owned a cartridge pistol, although I've worked on and shot a few. I want an open top or conversion so bad- I dream about them!

Howdy CasCity STORM,

     Been looking around, seems like this is the place to be,  I was an advid WW2 minded collector for quite a while and got up to 4 rifles, life has changed and now have two.

But somewhere along the way, I sold that enfield at a show, made the mistake (?) of walking around, feasted my eyes on a bit used 1894 30-30 Win  wrangler hoop and 16" barrel.  Sure didnt need it but wanted it, I bought it.  Then I began to wonder how that rifle came about,  thus my 1866 Uberti (that I paid for by selling a 1966 357 Colt Python 4" Nickel!  Yep, thats right!)  and now my love of the 1851 history and look, it may only be a MWNN, but I love these pistols, great shooters,  Like to join here, if that qaulifies!?  
For proof I Added the only pic of me I have with it, was from my Honeymoon this spring! Ha!

I would like to come in out of the cold.  Have a pair of OT's and have been shooten them a while now.
one is a 7.5 armygrip   the other is a 5.5 navygrip   both in 44colt/russian.   as I managed to grab 1000 russian
cases that is what I shoot the most, but do have 300cases of .44colt.    these are fun and accurate revolvers
and with a small amount of Claydot powder economical to shoot. as I shoot duelist/double duelist the 5.5 navy
is for my left hand; it don't miss much either.

After lurking & posting here for several years, I believe it is time I "Join Storm Here".

I shoot Frontiersman in CAS/SASS, using my 1860 or 1851 Pietta's, my Rifle is Uberti 73 Carbine in 44WCF. I shoot a 12 ga. SXS with all brass shells loaded with the Holy Black.

I like Open Tops and the original powder.

How do I join! I'm shooting two 1871-2's with 7.5 inch barrels and just changed one to a 5.5 inch barrel. it had problems so it hasn't been shot much. I do have a C Mason in .44 speical and IJ've worked on the barrel and cylinder clearance for a month now. I think I have it fixed. "O" the two 71's are .44 special also.  I'm going to go to 4.3 gr.s of TB with my loads and a 210gr. bullet. I was looking for the right guns to go with my pedersoli .44-40 pump rifle.  It doesn't look like that's going to happen now.   Dirty MacPill

I would consider it an honor to be a member of this illustrious group if accepted. The open top Colt design to me is the most beautiful pistols ever made. At current count (among my cap & ball collection) I found 23 models about equally divided between Colt and Uberti. Am doing my best to acquire more. Besides, look at my name.  Sincerely,  Navy Six

Hello all-


My two 20yr old open top Piettas were left to me as my father passed years ago.
His navy was his favorite, the 60 army had issues and he never shot it.
I've been working out the issues, most recently arbor fit, wedge fit, and frame lug length on the barrel, working to get solid repeatable barrel fitment.  I may also have some work to do on the bolt.  Very likely to fit a coil spring and plunger for the hand as well.

I've looked through 30 pages of this group's discussions.  What a great resource!
Count me in Please.
As many of you do, I find the 60 Army to be one of the most elegant and handy revolvers ever produced.
I may soon be in the market for a 72 - and will likely chime in on the group's chatter on the cartridge guns.



Thanks for the great archive of discussion!

request permission to come aboard!

New to CAS, and the wife and I are gearing up. I picked up a Traditions open top replica of a Richards conversion, and debating a 7.5" 1872 conversion, both in .38 special. The Traditions is exceptionally accurate at the range duelist style. Not so much double duelist  :(  For now I will be pairing the Traditions with a Uberti 1873 5.5" with leather from 45Maker

Ordered a Pietta Model 1862 Army Police .36 Caliber Revolver from Cabelas last night to debate on shooting a brace of them.  The Sheriff's 1860 from the same vendor have my eye as well

Should be geared up for our first match in August, so if I need to await then to join all ok.  We are looking for a 'modern' 1897 for my wife to go with her Blackhawks and Rossi

Howdy everybody!   ;D
Just thought I'd introduce myself and join the STORM group.  I am proud to include 1871 Open Tops in my arsenal.  I have them tuned and worked for fast draw and fanning.  I shoot nightly with the Local shootout gang and do other gigs in between.  It's a pleasure joining y'all! 

P.S. If'n I'm the first lady folk to join, I'm pleased to represent...

I'm wantin' in this also, if I may, as I shoot .36 (1851 & 1861), .44 (1851 Hybrid, 1860 & Remington NMA) and .45 Colt (Uberti's) all with the ONLY real gun powder.  Not gonna' mention my plastic guns with the 'other' stuff.   ;D
