Another new guy from the PNW
« on: July 14, 2021, 08:13:56 PM »
Got an invite from the Cap'n and here I am...  I'm not really new to Black Powder but I'm newish to revolvers and Springfields... Used to do Rendezvous for several years then took a 10 yr hiatus and took up scuba diving now health issues won't let me do that anymore so it's high time to get back to smoke-n-flame... Up to 4 pistols, 3 Rifles, and looking for a Flintlock smoothbore... Thanks for the invite and looking forward to Shinin' times...

ps  8 frogs have 16 eyes...
Thanks,
Alex

LOL! Sorry about the security questions...they should go away after a few logins and trouble you no more.
Glad to have you among us here, please make yourself at home and join us at the fire. Always good conversation here and everybody in Colt Country is a black powder enabler, so expect no help talking you out of your next purchase!
We love pictures here (for the illiterate, you understand!) and in fact, have a forum saying; "No pictures, it never happened!" So you gotta post some pix of those revolvers and rifles and such!

Welcome Alexitt!

Glad you found your way here. You'll find lots of helpful, friendly people here.

Look forward to seeing your guns, and hearing about shooting them.

We love pictures here, so don't be shy!!

Now that's what I'd call a well-diversified portfolio! L@.

Hi Alexitt and a warm welcome from Wisconsin. There are a few of us that have been down the rendezvous path. Thanks for posting the pictures of your collection. (yes, some of us ARE kinda illiterate!) L@J

Thanks All, also recently acquired an 1884 Trapdoor that I hope to be able to shoot soon once I get a loading setup... Hopefully we'll be able to have some more rendezvous next year, only one left for this year locally is the first weekend in Oct...
Thanks,
Alex

You'll love that Trapdoor. I've got a '73 and love it.
