napp, nice to see more Georgians here. Are you native, or transplanted?

Mizar, what size Opinel is that? I have 2 Opinels and love them. I don't think you can get as good a knife for the price, except for a Mora.

I have 2 NMA, a 5.5" and an 8". .44 cal, of course. I'd like to have the .36 NMN and the .31 pocket.
Once I find the camera I'll take and post pics. Until then, my membership will just have to be "pending".

Jaymo...Technically, I am a transplant; but I've lived almost half my life in Georgia.

Here's my stock photo of my old friend. You'll have to use the Flickr link, though.

Hasty image, but -





I am very pleased with this Revolver. It is a joy to Shoot, accurate, smooth Action, comfortable in the Hand, and easy to clean.

Appears to me some sort of Magnetic 'Stainless'...it is a Uberti...and has wonderful Walnut Stocks also.

Gentlemen, thank you for showing your support – some great looking guns there. No way to rate them really, but personally I’m currently torn between kwhi43’s beautiful custom navy and BHP FAN’s stainless/polished army. Oh, and Berkley’s cased NMA with those grips….. Keep ‘em coming!

Thanks for all the kind words. That cased conversion was an early birthday present to myself . The grips are from N.C. Ordnance.

My Buffalo

Does this count as a real Remington ??? Brass frame 12" barrel, shoots great and gets attention like no other.

Missuramoss -you can either add an attachment (use the little 'paperclip' icon in the reply editor) or you can link to an online image site like photobucket - in which case you paste the URL for the photo using the little 'landscape' icon. Let me know if you still have problems...... you're signed up so long as you promise to post those photos!

Hey I got some of them things too...

a .36 caliber in the foreground - and two .44's

Jeepers - I should have wiped them down! That 36 is so lousy with fingerprints it almost looks case hardened

I'd say that counts as a Remington and a half! What load do you use with that long barrel?

Started out with a .451 RB, prelubed wonder wad, with 25 g 3F bp. Last outing was using a .457 RB, Wonder wad, and 30g 3F bp. It hits where you aim and for me that is a testament to the gun not my shaky hands and wore out eyes.

Don't know how to upload photos but my avatar on othere boards is of me shooting one of my Ubertis. Have a total of 9 Remingtons (2 Navy Euros, 5 Euro 44s, & 2 Uberti 44 Milleniums). Used to own 3 Pietta SS NMA 44s. I think I qualify.
