General Discussion / Re: Does anyone here shoot their BP revolvers?
« Last post by G Dog on January 15, 2019, 08:42:04 PM »
No wall hangers or safe queens here.  I have eight C&B pistols and they all get  thoroughly smoked-up reglar.  I normally shoot twice a week.  This has been going on now for decades and Iím not close to over it yet. 

I got my boys hooked on BP and modern weapons when they were just sprouts.  For percussion they started with 20 grains in a Pietta 1851 and went from there. Naturally, they have their own now and for BP favor the 5.5 Remington and of course the venerable 1851.  They really took to it as kids and hooked their friends too and as men now the whole bunch of them own Piettas and Ubertis and shoot them very, very well.

The drill was: Iíll buy the ammo, you guys help clean.  We still shoot together quite often.  Range/trail time with C&B and the kids is the best fun there is. 

Shotgun knows.

Once you take kids shooting, they're hooked for life, and no leftist propaganda will scare them away from firearms.

I traded/sold off all of my centerfire guns a while back, except for one 12ga shotgun that I hunt with. That just leaves me with a big ol box full of BP guns. We're here in SoCal, and I get out at least once a month on BLM land and fire them up. I just had my kids out last week, before they had to go back to school from winter break. We had a grand ol time.

Thanks guys. I love the 51 Navy as well, but my hands are on the large size and the Army grip fits me better. Plus, there's something almost sexy about that barrel contour. Very racy looking to my eye.

The '60 Army is my favorite also.  I have five of them, both Uberti and Pietta.

Army Models / My favorite pistol

Well it's raining here is SoCal. So in an effort to pass the time and start a conversation, I decided to fool around with a little photography. This Uberti 1860 Army, manufactured in 2010, is my favorite pistol. It's had it's guts slicked up nicely and a set of Treso nipples installed. It's also had a taller front sight put on, and it shoots POI/POA at 25 yds. It's a really fun shooter. Of all my pistols, this one always gets the nod, no matter what else I'm bringing.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.
