    Man this thread took off! I woke up bright and early, was sipping my coffee and browsing THR before going out to haul a load of firewood for a buddy. And I thought I had too many blackpowder guns! Jokes aside, be careful. Blackpowder addiction can cause the health of your pocketbook to degrade! :p I own more BP guns than smokeless guns!

    I have one! A CVA Optima. It has served me well for two deer seasons now. I don't know why anyone would want more than one... ;)


    (I'm just kidding about that last part in case the winking eye didn't tip you off)

    Since I got into BP shooting in 2009, I've acquired:

    1 Pedersoli 2nd Model Brown Bess
    1 1884 Springfield Trapdoor
    1 Uberti Walker
    1 Pietta 1858 Remington
    1 Uberti SAA .45LC
    1 Pietta 1860 Army
    1 Traditions Pioneer Pistol (built from kit)

    About the only smokeless gun I still shoot with any regularity is my 1911. Just to keep in practice. My next one will probably be either a Uberti 1851 Navy or a Pedersoli 1861 Springfield. That's gonna be a while, though.

    Well, you see I found this old jetski that had a blown motor. So bein' the tinkering type I managed to to stuff a blown 454 Chevy motor in it. I was idling across a small stock pond one day at about 118mph, when we had an earthquake that triggered a tsunami in that pond. I survived the jump but somehow all my guns managed to fall off. Then the earth cracked open and swallowed up all the water in the pond and my guns to boot.

    I read in the news the other day that there was a big geyser thing in China and it shot out a bunch of guns. Someday I might just go over there and file a claim.

    Yup, that's how it happened.:rolleyes:

    I have my home made .25 cal black powder pistol ,an 1858 New Army Remington and a black powder shot gun in the making.Here's the pistol I made in .25 caliber.It shoots .25 caliber bullets that I make from a mold but it will shoot lead shot better,being that it's a smooth bore :D [​IMG]

    Sounds like the wife is looking over the shoulder of some of you guys!

    Oh, I also forgot my cannon. I have a .32 caliber muzzleloading cannon that I made from aluminum with a steel breech plug. 10 grains of powder and a patched ball will make a pretty nice boom for such a little pipsqueak of a cannon! :D

    My neighbors really love me. :rolleyes:

    Nope.

    But even if she was, it's more her business than anyone else's. People who display and talk about valuables in public are called targets.
