Hi all!
« on: December 29, 2015, 12:09:05 PM »
Hello from West Michigan! Thought I'd say hi and wish everyone a happy New year.
I have a couple of black powder pistols, one of which is an ASM Walker with presentation case that I picked up a year ago. It's not a showpiece by any means but it's a good-looking pistol.

Welcome to the forum! Glad you stopped by. The coffee's hot an the fire's warm. We'd love to hear a bit more about you and your interests and see some pix of that Walker!

Thanks guys. I'll see if I can get some pictures posted today. I took a couple last night but the presentation case's red cloth looks purple in the pics, and ain't no way I'm posting purple pics.

Did I do that right? I've never worked with photobucket before so feel free to critique my lack of knowledge.
There's a picture of my brasser there too.

Cool. Thanks. I'll have to read up on how to do that and post the two pictures of my Walker. I'm not a great photographer so please forgive the quality.



Wow, it worked.
