Welcome! We're glad you found us! Please take time to browse around and visit the various boards and threads here on out forum! All of the staff would like to personally welcome you here and hope you will enjoy your stay.

A few details about our forum:
*We are dedicated to the 1858 Remington revolver and it's offshoots, but not limited. Most, if not all of the members here own all types of black powder revolvers and other firearms, ranging from flintlocks, to black powder cartridge guns, to conversions. You will find boards for just about every black powder revolver ever made, and if you DON'T see what you're looking for, drop me a Personal Message and we'll see if we cant accommodate you. We would LOVE to see pictures of your firearms either in the appropriate thread or in the Photos thread.
*We are a very laid-back and open forum here without a lot of strict rules. That is possible only because we respect each other's choice of gun even if it's not our cup of tea, and we respect our fellow staff members and membership. Nobody would dream of making personal attacks against a person, their beliefs, or choice of firearm. In fact, I can guarantee that that would be the fast-track out the door, no questions asked. You are encouraged to ask questions, debate or even give a friendly challenge to a subject, AS LONG AS IT STAYS CIVIL. Flaming, baiting, trolling, spam, pornography or lewd remarks, sexual innuendo or personal attacks will not be tolerated and in most cases will result in instantaneous and permanent banning and possibly a report to your IP provider if severe enough. Respect your fellow members as you would a family member or co-worker. Respect staff as you would your supervisor. We all donate a ton of time here trying to make this the best black powder forum on the 'net and don't have time for childish or immature games or behavior.
*When you have decided you would like to register for membership here so you you can join in the conversation and camaraderie here, the following rules apply:
1) ALL memberships require an email address and a username. MAKE SURE your username and email address make sense. For example, attempting to register as "MalibuBarbi01" with an email address of iluvbarbi@dolls.com will ensure your registration WILL BE REJECTED. Try something like RemmyRon or Wild Bill, or something that gives us a clue you are a serious BP shooter and not a spam bot.
2) If you have a foreign IP address, let us know BEFORE you attempt to register. Most foreign IP addresses are AUTOMATICALLY REJECTED unless we know who you are, and that you are trying to register. Sorry, but that's the way it is.

Again, we are glad you have found your way here and hope you will find much to learn and share here.

New rules implemented for the buy,sell, trade section.

ALL new members must have 25 or more posts before they can gain access to the "buy sell trade" area. Do not post things for sale in other areas to try to circumvent these rules, your posts will be removed and you will be banned. 25 post of "+1" or smileys will not qualify towards the 25 post minimum and will be removed, furthermore those in violation will have their post counts reset back to zero.

Remember, these boards are not intended to be a place for commerce in firearms.  There are excellent sites for such things, including Guns America, Auction Arms, Armslist and Gunbroker.  The For Sale forums are intended to be a convenience for ESTABLISHED members to buy and sell firearms between themselves, NOT for the "general public" to register in order to have yet another place to sell firearms. Please use this board to gain or share your knowledge of the black powder firearms we all love and cherish and enjoy your stay!
