Hello from Western Colorado
« on: November 09, 2019, 08:42:18 PM »
I’m not new to black powder, started messing with it in the 60’s, but I’m pretty new to the Remington revolvers and I’ve been told there’s a wealth of information here concerning boolits for cap and ball pistols. Great site folks, I’ve been reading off and on for several days now and my only regret is that I didn’t stumble into the joint years ago!

I notice the new posts are kinda sparce. Shame really, but I’m on several other BP forums and it appears that our hobby is in a bit of a slump. I’m taking people shooting regularly to introduce newcomers to the sport (passion really!) all shooting sports are fun but there’s something about playing with centuries old technologies and making them work...

Welcome,   I'm over on the other half of the State North of Denver.   Where abouts in Western Colorado do you hang out?

Hey Mike, I’m in Garfield county... it used to be pretty rural but, well, you’re aware of how that’s going!  ;)

Activity comes in waves here. Fall/winter is generally the slower side of things, but there is plenty of material to catch up on your reading with!

Ain’t that the truth! Volumes of interesting stuff! I’m glad my buddy let me know about the spot.

Still is rural  compared to where I am.   Everywhere in Colorado is getting crowed though.     I've been here my whole life,  I'm ready to leave now.

I’ve been here most of my life, left for a while cause my Uncle needed a few good men. Came home and the solitude we still enjoyed back then was just the thing I needed. Now the solitude is harder and harder to find, people are overrunning the whole western slope... We’re about ready to leave too, I’m just not sure if I know where to go.

I’ve been wondering why this Omnivore fella doesn’t! Along with input from all of you aficionados it’d be comprehensive... anyway, I’m glad to be here. Went out with my Remington and shot a few cylinders, the knuckle bite is there but I plan to work on the grip a bit so I can get a better handle on things.
