Hello to all,

While I have been interested in the Old West since forever (born in California Gold country can do that) I have only recently put hands-on the experience with shootin' iron. Most of my previous weapons experience focused on German longsword from the late medieval eras.

My current selection of guns are blackpowder replicas, all Ubertis at this point. I'm particularly fond of the Dragoons and have a pair on hand, though the prettiest Colt that I have is a Frankengun of an 1851 Navy frame coupled to a round Leech & Rigdon .36 barrel (mismatched S/Ns) and finished with a blued-steel Cattleman grip/mainspring.
