My 1st love

I know there is not many black powder shooters here on this forum . When come down to shooting 25yds the is not many modern gun that can out shoot them . Here are my pistols and revolvers. The Parker and Kentucky are the only guns I have not shot and both of them are unfired .





This one of those nights I forgot to go to bed . I will match this gun against any modern gun you have even a target 22 . The bullet not in group I called out .

They shoot good . There are 1858 Remy in 44 made with a gainer twist like the original that will shoot the eye out of a snake .

That is just amazing shooting, there, TX, amazing. Oh, yeah, I have to get one of those.

Visited with a guy at the range this fall who was shooting a TC Encore 209x50 rifle with sabots, using Blackhorn 209. Not too sure about going that ultra modern when I do more BP shooting, but I could not believe the accuracy this guy was getting - 3/4", 5 shot groups at 100 yards. So much for "primitive weapons".

I was thinking there would be a picture of a buxom blonde on a motorcycle.
But I should have known there would be some incredible guns and targets. You never cease to impress me with your collection and shooting skill.
