    BP---Insanity??

    Been shooting a Ruger Old Army..7.5ss...since...1976. TC Renengade..54..since 1978. TC Cherokee..(anyone remember these?).in 32....since the late eighties. Added a second ROA....blue...5.5.....couple of years now. Cast my own slugs for all of the above......some hollow points for the ROAs.....pure lead. Insane? with the prices of ammo lately? If I see the need.....can order..and afford a lifetimes worth of powder and caps..and still have the means to move it all on a moments notice. I can make slugs with a campfire...ladle..and mold. Recycle slugs if I need to.

    I have enough muzzle loaders to say that I have some that I haven't fired yet. ;)
    If you ask my wife how many there are, she'll tell you "Too many!" :D

    replica Rogers and Spencer revolver
    original Henry 'Iron Frame' rifle
    original Pennsylvania long rifle 32 cal unknown make ('squirrel rifle', very accurate)
    replica 3 band Enfield
    replica two band carbine
    I have half interest in a replica Gatling Gun 50 cal
    I have half interest in an original 1832 six pounder field piece. Ft. Pitt Foundry

    Two original powder horns. Scrimshaw and other carving dates these to 1840s.
    Original bayonets w/frogs and scabbards for the above military rifles.

    As like others above I run my own ball and reload my own brass.

    Looking for original Spencer rifle/carbine at reasonable price.

    I forgot...I also have an original 1858 Remington that my Great Grandfather carried during the 'Troubles'. Don't shoot it since I keep it in a box at the bank.

    Loved shooting these things ever since I was old enough to take the recoil. Gosh! I never listed them all before and these are just the black powder firearms...must be some sort of 'gun nut' I guess...

    7 rifles, 6 handguns so far, with more on the way. It's an addiction! :)
    I own way more centerfires than I own BP guns, but I have far more passion for the BP guns and I can see them outgrowing my centerfire collection some day.

    Currently, one 1860 Army rep and a Lyman Great Plains Rifle in .54p.

    Got plans to get a rocklock Pennsy and an 1851 rep, and maybe a Brown Bess or Charleville rep.

    Maybe a matchlock, too. And a wheellock pistol....

    Bronze barrel 12-pound Napoleon...:uhoh:

    Here's my inventory:

    2 brass framed .44 Navies (Pietta)
    1 steel framed '60 Army (Pietta)

    1 Walker Colt
    1 3rd Model Dragoon
    1 '6o Army
    (The above all Colt Blackpowder Signature Series)

    1 '51 Navy (Colt Blackpowder 2nd gen "F" series)

    1 1873 Model P "7th Cavalry" SAA (blackpowder frame - Navy Arms)

    1 "Cattleman's Carbine"
    1 "Winchester '73"
    1 1866 "Yellow Boy"
    (all Uberti)

    1 .50 cal "Great Plains " rifle (Lyman)

    I used to have a Remmie '58 New Army from Pietta which wasn't a bad gun, but I just could never get into it, had more fun with the open-framed Colts and hardly ever used it, so eventually I gave it away to a friend who still shoots it occasionally.

    As to who gets the guns after I've gone, I've willed the 2nd and 3rd gen Colts to a local history museum in Ft Lupton, Colo (originally an old trading fort along the South Platte River in the 1830s); the rest to be divvied up between my nephews.

    :D

    4 firearms....

    2,456 doo-dads and odds and ends (patch pullers, wedge hammers, nipple picks, drop-in borelights, buttered patches, over felt fiberwads, original cap boxes, shot snakes, measures, scales, worms, nipple rubbers, speedlaoders, bullet blocks etc etc etc) in a tacklebox bigger than a spare tire on a 47 Buick.

    Not to mention a sudden desire to buy a skunk hat and 'breeches' to match my 'possibles' bag.

    Colt 1836 Signature Navy .36
    Pietta 1860 Army "Outlaw" .44
    Thompson/Center Hawken .54
    Pedresoli coach gun .12 ga

    Possibles = its' possible you are gonna spend a whole lotta $ on widgets to put in this bag.
