New Member from North Carolina
« on: June 05, 2017, 01:31:32 PM »
I've recently gotten into black powder after picking up an older Pietta Remington off Armslist this year. After getting over my apprehension of cleaning up after shooting, I quickly realized this is really fun. I've since gotten a new Pietta 1860 Army which I also like a lot. I thought I'd be able to pick a favorite out of the two, but I like both in different ways. Instead of having a favorite, I just want to get a 1851 Navy and shoot more.

Anyway, I'm glad I found a good source of info and plan on learning as much as I can.

Thanks,
Patrick

Welcome Patrick.  It's a smaller group, but very friendly and plenty of information sharing.  I like all the Colt models for various reasons, soon you will want to own them all....be careful, this gets addictive quickly.
