Here is a pic of my dueling pistols, that has just been recently cleaned up and I am so proud to own. Haven't got the chance to shoot them yet, but hopefully this coming spring I will. These are .50 cal.

Hi Terri:
So those were the dueling pistols you were telling me about a while back. Are those British? How have you been since your move?

Mike, yes those are the pistols I was talking about. Sandman got all the brass cleaned on them and they are really pretty now and just wanted to post a pic of them. I'm not sure if they are british or not.

I am doing great after my move, am loving CO. it is beautiful.

Remember the Liar Thread at TFL? I forgot which member but he'd wrote that he and a buddy would shoot at each other and the bullets would collide in mid-flight.:eek: Just don't try this with the dueling pistols - or any other gun :p

Terri:
Do those pistols have a makers stamp on the barrel or lockplate? Also if they are british in origin they might have a british proofhouse stamp on them. This would most likely be in some from of a crown logo. Most likely these were made between 1810 and 1840 judging from their style. Their design is almost like the martial pistols of their time.

Maybe they should try that trick with the 81MM Mortar.... :neener:
