    Yep, that use to be my gun.....Fortunately the gal shootin' it is my wife.

    That was my custom .36 Edward Marshal gun made by Wheeler. I let the wife shoot it today, and she cleaned off a Coke can at 50 yards with her first shot.... by shot number three she looked at me with that "Mine, mine, it's all mine look" :uhoh:

    At least maybe she'll let me use again, ~ I hope:D

    gizamo,

    It's great to see, that your wife is into firearms. It's a great feeling when the better half does these things.

    Man, Gizamo! Could you have worded your thread title a bit differently?:D

    When I saw it, I thought: "Damn! Another range thief!":what:

    Awesome pic:D

    Well at least you know who took it & at least you can see it on occasion.. :evil:

    It's good that you have your better half shooting with ya any ways then she can not complain too much when you want that new to you toy. :D
    Like my wife when she finally got her own bow & started shooting good groups at 20 yards with it. :D

    There's a lot of historical precedents for frontier women who knew not only how to mould bullets & load the flintlock, but also how to shoot them. Your wife may be the reincarnation of Susanna Wetzel. ;)

    Yep, she hasn't seen the 20 ga Flintlock Canoe gun in the safe. Guess we won't be shooting that one when she's around.....LOL.

    Giz,

    The only way I could get this one

    [​IMG]

    back from my wife was to give her this one.:(

    [​IMG]

    She can outshoot me with her rifle, a pistol, (former Deputy Sheriff) and has won hawk throwin' contests in 5 states.

    You ever hear that song, "I walk the line"???
    :eek:

    I can gawrantee you she ain't gittin' this one. It is made from the same barrel and piece of wood as my rifle.

    nice guns guys. I really love my flintlock, it's just so much fun to shoot. sorry the wife stole it from you, but at least she like to shoot, so it seems like a good trade.
