I think my original thread was misplaced.

So.

SAA replicas: black powder or smokeless?
Are the SAA repilicas being made today being made to use black powder cartridges only or blackpowder and smokeless cartridges?
:cool:

Re: Meet Eden Seeley Tomlinson and Two of His Pocket Pistols

I am - pretty much - the last of my mother's family standing.

When my younger - 49 brother died back in 2002, I suddenly realized it was
up to me to put everything in order. My mother had about 2500 old tintypes
and photos that needed top be put in order and preserved. It took me two and
a half years to do it - but finally I finished - about a year after my mom's death
(just in the nick of time - she knew everything about the older photos - I did not)!
Now everything is on three DVDs and they've been given to my four kids and five
grandkids. Included are all the old family stories (digitized), photos, family
documents, birth and death certificates, diaries, enlistment papers, medals, etc.,
etc., etc.

Again, I suggest everyone do this!
:cool:

:cool: -Here's one, 1847 Sam Walker-Colt--

That put Mr. Colt back in business and phased out the lousy "PATERSON" 5-shot BP revolver

How ya like that ole haugleg!??

You know, I've always wanted one of those old'uns - Walker Colts -
they were certainly the magnum of it's day. I did manage to pick up
an 1858 Remington New Army .44 - used to shoot it a lot when I
was a bit younger - liked the entire regimen to get one of those 'on
line' and fire it - surprisingly powerful and accurate, too. You shoot
that one much?

:cool: -No zip, I've never shot the darn thing , it's just one of my displays--

--A bit of trivia, the Walker-colt was the most powerful revolver from 1847 untill 1964 when the 44 mag was intruduced--
