I live in linden, TN.
It is between jackson,tn. and nashville, tn.
about 35 miles south of I40.
There is about 25thousand people in the entire county.
The crime rate is aprox 2 crimes per 100 thousand.
of course the unemployment is 27.5 percent. The last factory we had went to mexico, and the lumber mill imported mexicans to work there.
but we are hanging on.
I thank GOD everyday that I don't live in memphis anymore.
I have 60 acres 8 miles outside of town and the house in town 3 blocks from the court house is on 10 acres.
all of it is covered in hard wood.
It is not uncommon to sit at ths table and while drinking my morning coffee, to look out and see a deer, or a flock of turkeys, in my back yard.
This morning my granddaughter was watching a brown rabbit, out by her swing set.

Shhh, don't say too much, the snowbirds will be down in droves, driving slow in the left hand lane with huge RV's and stuff.

Actually, I am familiar with the area, Hohenwald in particular, but I have driven through Linden several times. That's an extremely nice part of central Tennessee.

Lewis and Clark fans may like to know that Meriwether Lewis is buried nearby.

(Obligatory on topic comment) He didn't carry a Walker Colt.

We just had a civil war re-enactment this weekend, they had cannons and stuff, but no walkers
It would seem that the yankees burned down our court house on may 12 1863, during the first recorded amphibious attack by the US Calvary.
Those cannons were almost as loud as my walker

20-30 grains of powder vs 60 grains of pure power.
I shot my 1851 navy in .44 yesterday, and then shot my walker, those pesky cans will never bother anybody again.

Brother Steven I will stand in agreement with you that God will open the door and a Walker will be placed in your path in the name of Jesus, Amen

Yeah, they tried here in Kennesaw and Atlanta, and you see where that got them.

I was talking to boberama about he should have gotten the walker.
I have mine,but I never turn down a prayer.
I bought it from the hardware store here in linden.
I eyeballed that bad boy for a year.
I have to tell ya, that God has blessed me, most of all, with a wife that tolerates my gun collecting habbit. at last count 29 rifles and shot guns and 10 side arms.

Steven Y, where'd you get that lovely presentation box? Did it come with your Walker or was it something you made up?

Having just paid for my first PAIR of BP revovlers I'm of a mind to make up a nice box of this sort to transport them in a mirror placed "dueling pair" manner. Sadly up this way there will have to be a divot for the mandatory trigger locks to be legal. But it sure would look classy to show up at the CAS events with a nice mahogany box, flip it open and show off the matched pair of shootin' irons.

Thank You.
I made it from some shelving board,from the hall closet, from when we converted it into a stairway to the basement.(the best idea,ever).the stairs, I mean.
I have a work table in the basement, and had to go outside to get to the basement. now I can go down in the middle of the night and work .
My wife bought the fabric in memphis for me.

You did a fine job on the case. I have a real nice case for a OU trapgun I sued to own. I thought about taking it and making it basically a supersized case for two Walkers. Might go ahead and try to build one for my Colt peacemaker as well

I'd make it for as many as I could fit in it, and show up at the range with a selection of shootin irons to chose from.
most guys are only alowed to buy a couple of guns. they get a pistol a shot gun and a rifle and then the wife cuts them off at that point, so I like to take a couple extra to the range or turkey shoot and let them look at them.

Wanted to thank you guys who gave me a heads up on where to get parts for my Walkers. My new mainspring arrived today and put it back together just awhile ago. My newest Ubwerti Walker with teh gold inlayed cylinder came yesterday. Thats no gunshow gold pen in there.........it is real gold. And it has the nicest looking blued finish on it. Uberti has made some nice guns but this finish is unreal

Very nice NS!

Now - what edition model is this. If it was gold engraved then it would have to have some kind of a name.

Do not be coy or I will set GOTC onto you - he does not like any engraving! LOL.

Actually the gentleman I bought it form purchased it from the estate of a jeweler who had passed away but it was him that inlaid all of the engraving in 24k gold. So its not a special addition or anything like that. I got the Walker (Uberti) correct brass powder flask, some balls, Walker nipple wrench, and capper and the rpesentationc ase for $325 shipped so I was real happy with it. Between teh two fella's that have owned it it does nto look like it has even been fired although he told me he put about 50 balls thru it. Looking forward to shooting it and thanks for the compliments
