Where's the drool icon?   ;)

They're good guns and fun but with very pronounced inherent limitations (read, mouse fart).

That fox I mentioned was a young vixen and just little.  That's the only sort of thing you should shoot with a .31 Pocket, little. It was the only gun that girl had; the only gun she ever had. She loves those rabbits though, she'd a shot us too if we were caught messin' with those damn rabbits.

Spotted a Uberti Colt Open Top .45 Colt on sale for $489. 


First - We feel for ya.  Was it a .44 Walker, a .44 Dragoon, a .44 Army, a conversion?  New, used?  That's not exactly a bargain basement fire-sale price, anyway.  You may have suffered a blessing in disguise.   

You could move to New York or California?  )lI )lI


Yea, move to Cali. We have these brown trucks here that drive around and deliver C&B guns straight to your front door.  There are a few downsides to living here (I won't elaborate) but for percussion revolvers and cap lock long guns it's a Free State.

Yes Sir, number one top seller.

As to the utility and efficacy of a .31, this is pretty good:   My boy who owns the Rem Pocket briefly loaned it to a friend-girl (Oregon left coast, blond dreadlock anti gunner type - you know the demo) who raises rabbits and chickens for business and was plagued by coon and fox.  He showed her how to shoot and run it, practiced a few shots, cleaned it, loaded four and left it overnight.  Within twenty-four hours she had a fox on top of her hutch and nailed it out a second story window with a plunging shot to the head. One shot. She cried about killing Vulpes vulpes but ironically, is a lot less anti-gun now and her stock is intact.  Interesting how that works, even for falafel Libs.

So much for Democrats and .31 Pockets.  Those are good guns.

A gut shot was almost always a death sentence with any sized projectile.


Yep, accurate statement.  Just a simple flesh hurt could bring on septicemia and that could be as bad a way to go as getting caught by angry indigenes.  After a dust up Iíd just want to stay around in good enough health to send flowers.  Either put em down hard or apologize and get the hell out, if possible.

No contest though.  A .31 makes a good boot gun if/when ya run out of viable options.  One of my boys has a Remington steel .31 and itís just crazy-ass fun to shoot.  Got a pesky gopher in my yard with that one and it did a full job on that fellow.  Wonít see him no more.  Pocket .31ís are cool little guns and no one can say otherwise.

Good for use across a card table to really piss off a sharper or on feral kittens if thatís how ya roll - and thatís .. just .. about .. it.  Using anything under a .36 is just an invitation to get shot back a few times.  In verity though, an 1849 is ďcuteĒ, a term I donít often employ, but gosh darn it, they are.  I think of them as mostly an urban weapon.  Out on the baddies a Ď49 would just get a guy laughed at (or killed).

In fairness, MB did admit, in full candor, that he would not take it bear hunting.  Yea, no.

That's some serious good placement, well done.  I'll be a Democrat if I don't just love a Colt Sixty, damn if I don't.

If more Americans could be still and occasionally get out into country like that this would be a healthier and happier nation. Wilderness maintains and restores the soul.  Gunner is looking great and extremely well cared for.  The saddle looks new.  Those are some great photos.

Thanks, Scooby.

Bodie is just a little north of there.  That's the real deal.

Iíd buy one with skid marks but that would effect the price I'd be willing to pay.  Then Iíd try to fix it.  If the bolt is cutting a track around the cylinder itís probably chewing on the slots and approaches too which over time would be a deal beyond the mere cosmetic, bigly.

- it is evident that overall I still need more...

Yes you do and so do we all.

Duke said that the bolt drag marks on his cylinder were ďno big dealĒ.  Personally, I think itís a very Big Deal.

Congratulations on the new one.  I've lost track on the count of your repros but it must be close to fifty by now.  The more one has - the bigger the party. That's axiomatic.   Your latest looks pretty shiny and down to the white.  I have never examined an "old silver" mod but was expecting something with a little more gray to it. Do those show any gray patina tone or remnant of partial blue? 

If you were not going to use a conversion cylinder on that Army would you still replace the stock main spring for something lighter?
