Hello from Midwest
« on: April 23, 2021, 03:43:36 PM »
   Bought my first Colt Navy around 1985,it is Brass frame so was warn out and loose by 1990  L@. Pretty much was into flintlocks only by then and with kids lot of hours working  never really had time to shoot a percussion revolver anyway,Kids grown married and I slowed way down my working hours,I'd picked up a ROA  few years back and was shooting it occasionaly,when ammo got short last year and I had plenty of stuff for .36 cap and ball revolver I bought me a Uberti 61 Navy,in the last few months I've jumped into the hobby with both feet,somehow my warn out 51 Navy and ROA has turned into 8 various replicas of Colt and Remington in just a few months,my cartridge guns are getting dusty and lonely.

         I've been checking the Colt and Remington forums couple times a week for month or two,decided to go ahead and join today,I couldnt see a lot of the pics and was thinking maybe more show up if I belong to forum,plus its possible I just may have a helpful hint or idea to pass along some day,doubtful but possible  (jh   ,I have picked up a lot of good info here.

Hi, welcome from Wisconsin! Even though we know what a Colt revolver looks like, we never tire of looking at other's guns here. (Hint). Some pictures here have gone away through cancelling them on the hosting site, others were posted on PhotoBucket and have since been deleted.
