I was out shooting a pair of Cimarron London Model 1851 Navy revolvers yesterday, and I thought you all might like a little peak at them in action.

I gave two fisted shooting a try, but it is painfully obvious that I lack the skill to pull it off.

Greetings
We all have differing capabilities. But whatever do not loose the smile of walking away knowing you did your best and having a great time while doing it.

Another great video Duelist and good shooting!!! Did you fill the hammer notch with JB Weld prior to shooting?

And why would you do that?

On another video he filled the notch on the hammer face with JB Weld to stop it from grabbing the cap after firing, pulling it off the nipple and jamming the action. There's a thread about this also but I can't seem to find it.
I took his advice and did it myself and it works great on my Colts even though it makes it a five shot while hunting.

Oh, I see. Thank you for the explanation.

I've tried Gunfighter style now and then in my club's monthly meets. It's a humbling experience that suggests that the folks which are good at it do a LOT of dry fire practice at home.

Man, I have got to get a C&B revolver. I'm thinking a .36 Navy.

I do that with two Walkers.

Over the shoulder.


Backwards.


With a mirror.

Another fun video! I've already got one Uberti London model, and I'd really like to get a second one and a "Wild Bill" dual holster rig for them. :D

No, I'm thinking more a double cavalry draw (butt forward) rig, like this:

I just have to make sure the belt is long enough! ;)
