New member, new to black powder
« on: May 23, 2019, 08:42:15 PM »
Hello all, thanks for letting me join this very knowledgable group. New to black powder  but been around firearms all my life. Jumped in full bore with a Uberti Colt Walker. Been doing lots of research on it, and hopefully will finally get it out this weekend for some fun. Look forward to talking with all you hreat folks!!!!!! In Az by the way.

Welcome from Kommiefornia!!

You're in the right place for Colt's and black powder.

Look forward to some pictures if that Walker, and hearing how you like shooting it.

Thanks everyone, hope to add some pics after this weekend. About the only thing I've done to the beast is replace the stock nipples with stainless steel ones from SliXshot. We'll see how everything else goes soon. Damn thing was packed in enough oil for an oil change on my truck!!!!! But hey, no rust!!!!!
