Another New Guy

I just joined the Forum and so far have been impressed with the comments. My special interest is cap and ball revolvers and their conversions. I own three so far, all replicas, but great shooters: Colt 1851 Navy, !858 Remmy, and a .36 cal Gunnison and Griswold.

I am retired now but taught for many years. I also had the honor and privilege to serve for 24 years (active and reserve) in the Army. Among my family, golf, and model railroading, I try to get to the range once a week. In many ways, retirement is like a second childhood, except now you have have money and are legal (and you get in to matinees for the kid's price!)

I look forward to reading the Forum.
