Just found a gun I did not know I had.

While I was out cleaning up my work shop and sorting years of crap to stuff up in the attic I came across a box of old gun stuff, in the box was a bunch of old brass, cleaning rods, holsters, and other related junk. As I sifted through the box I saw my old percussion pistol. I bought the thing 20 years ago. It is a Spaish Dikar .45 cal, a kit gun that someone put together, but did a piss poor job of it. I brought it home, and completly reworked it, new finish on the wood, and some polishing of the lock, heat blueing of the screwheads and whatnot. I thought I sold it When I took the ten boxes of gun crap to the OGCA show to sell, but evedently I was mistaken. I think I might just have to take it out and shoot it. And then hang it on the wall.

Those Spanish pistols can be good shooters.I won our club pistol match Sunday with mine.
