Walker at night


September 17, 2008, 12:32 AM
I was working the range last night during deputy quals, and brought along the trusty Walker. Well, we turned out all the lights and brought out the camera during a lull in the action. This was the result of 60 grains of Pyrodex.

Nice photos!!! That second one is really impressive!

That pic of the Rem showing the flames that emit from the front of the cylinder, is worth a thousand articles on chain firing. Every novice should be shown that photo.

Looks like a Pheasant, The long tail and the head on the right. Both are impressive photos, SG, Ive used that one to show how a chain fire could happen.

wow, i have read where people tried to disprove frontally ignited chain fire by burning bp on top of a un lubed full chamber,conclusively they said it would not happen that way. i can totally see it as a possibility now! thats a lot hotter, more forcefull flame than just lighting a little bp on top of a ball :what:

I have this day light image of friend shooting my 1851.

This freeze frame photo is from a video clip taken with a pocket camera.
It's a .667 single shot smoothbore pistol loaded with a combination
of about 100 grains of APP & Goex Clearshot powders.
It shows more flame than smoke and it really packed quite a wallop too! :)

SIG; No hearing or eye protection? Ow.

A older fellow I know, who was an artillery man in his younger years, shoots with no protection. For some reason he always wants to quit shooting before I'm ready to quit. He fires a few rounds and he's ready to go home. I always have to speak up, and enunciate when I'm talking to him too, or he'll say, "What?" I don't know why I bring it up. Carry on.

One of our RSO's doesn't wear hearing protection. I asked him about it one day and he had to put his hearing aids in to answer my question - he couldn't read my lips because of my beard. I'd known the guy as an acquaintance in passing for several months and had no idea he was stone deaf. True story.

This is my personal favorite smoke and fire shot. What makes it extra special is my bro-in-law took it with an early Polaroid digital that had about a 3 second lag between pushing the button and the photo actually taking. Plus it was at my very first Cowboy Action Match.


I've got quite a few more good flame photos in my photobucket album. Go to photobucket and do a search for blackpowderpulp.

Here is a picture of me shooting my 1851, about 30 years ago.

Take a close look at the hammer in that Remmie photo. If I am not mistaken, it is backing out from the frame there AFTER firing.

I've always thought my Remmie had a weak spring in that although it will fire, the hammer is very easy to move off the nipple, as opposed to staying there like other guns do. I have shimmed the spring as the screw is in as far as I can get it.

Which makes me wonder if I have enough room in the frame to inlet it a bit with a moto tool so that I can screw the strain screw in more. I'll have to check into that.

The Doc it out now. :cool:
