Hello from SW Florida
« on: January 20, 2016, 03:59:40 PM »
Hello from SW Florida. 

I began shooting BP in high school with some friends I was in Boy Scouts with.  Was mostly shooting rifles then, Hawkens, various flintlock models and a few Enfields.  After being away for a while I dug out one of my old rifles and have got back into the sport.  About one year ago I got into C & B revolvers and have been thoroughly enjoying them.  So far I have 2 1851 Navy models, both Pietta, an ASM 3rd Model Dragoon and an 1849 Uberti Pocket Model.  They are addicting to say the least.

I have learned a lot reading this forum, and I especially like that there are categories for each specific model, makes it really easy to find info relative to a particular revolver.

Welcome to the forum 99whip.  Don't be bashful; just jump in whenever you see an opening.

Appears that you have a good start to a collection. 

Addicting is putting it mildly.  Don't ask me how I know.
