Happy to be here
« on: April 21, 2017, 10:05:03 AM »
Hey all,

New member checking in here. Mostly been a long time .22lr plinker until some friends talked me into trying out black powder, and recently picked up my first cap and ball revolver, an 1851 Navy imported by Navy Arms that I'll post about later. I'm a librarian and a former history major so shooting cap and ball fits right in with my usual obsession with early American history. Glad to be aboard!

Hi val, welcome from Western New York. Your moniker suggests that you are also a New Yorker?

Regards,
Richard

Yeah living that close to Taylors would be pretty darn tempting. It's bad enough living near a few breweries and crab shacks, though Taylors would be lighter on the calories. Appreciate the heads up on the NA/Pietta!

Hi val, if not from New York you can't use the forget about it.  (7+" (7+" (7+"

Good to have you here. I only wish I lived in a more friendly gun state than New York.

Regards,
Richard

Maryland isn't much better Richard. Being surrounded by my home state of VA and WV both with way better laws is always irritating.
