New from Florida
« on: November 14, 2018, 06:40:38 PM »
Hi, I'm Kevin from Florida. Long time ago I built a 50 cal. TC Hawken rifle to take deer hunting when we lived in Michigan.  Since then I've acquired a hand full of smokeless hand guns. I shoot down here and with my younger son up in Minnesota.  A couple of years ago he inherited (among others) a Uberti Walker from his then father-in-law.  So, naturally I got a Pietta New Army to get out with him and try black powder revolvers. We both knew it was going to be fun, but thought it was going to be kind of a novelty.  Wow, we were really wrong. Now it's about the only gun I ever want to shoot. It's so much fun that I had to get another. New one (top) is a Uberti New Navy. Is this going to be addictive?

Likely so, but looking on the bright side; it's a lot better than a crack addiction.

Many of us have come to that same dispensation.  No novelty, it’s the real deal and there is, after all, such a thing as a wholesome addiction.

Once a quarter I qualify on semi autos.  The rest of the time is all about BP revolvers.
