New to the Forum,just saying Howdy
« on: November 23, 2019, 11:38:19 PM »
I just joined and want to say Howdy
Born and raised in Central Arkansas.

Have been a gun enthusiast since I was about 10 years old and I will be 60 in a couple of months.

Have shot and hunted Rimfire and Centerfire Handguns ,Bows,crossbows,home made Hickory Indian Flatbows and arrows,single shot 50 cal percussion
Pistols,and of course Rimfire and centerfire Rifles .

Started reloading when I was about 12 then Later Started casting my own Lead bullets for my handguns made for water dropped wheelweights for the revolvers and Paper patching a 300 grain Pure lead LBT wide Flat nose bullet for use out of a 10 inch TC Contender.

For some reason I never really got into Percussion revolvers But Lately the BUG has bit me so to speak and I bought a Pietta from Cabelas,a 1858 Remington-New Model Army in the Sheriff configuration with the 5.5 inch barrel.And a spare cylinder.
Upon getting the revolver from Cabela's I went to the internet YouTube videos on how to completely disassemble and tune up the revolver and did so.

Have been reading everything I can about Cap and Ball Pistols as I got the fever Bad .
And this is how I came upon this site which I am really enjoying reading.
I like Learning all about anything that I am interested in.

Anyway, after all this typing, HOWDY !!
