    Here is a pic of my dueling pistols, that has just been recently cleaned up and I am so proud to own. Haven't got the chance to shoot them yet, but hopefully this coming spring I will. These are .50 cal.

    Hi Terri:
    So those were the dueling pistols you were telling me about a while back. Are those British? How have you been since your move?

    Mike, yes those are the pistols I was talking about. Sandman got all the brass cleaned on them and they are really pretty now and just wanted to post a pic of them. I'm not sure if they are british or not.

    I am doing great after my move, am loving CO. it is beautiful.

    Very nice...

    Remember the Liar Thread at TFL? I forgot which member but he'd wrote that he and a buddy would shoot at each other and the bullets would collide in mid-flight.:eek: Just don't try this with the dueling pistols - or any other gun :p

    Do those pistols have a makers stamp on the barrel or lockplate? Also if they are british in origin they might have a british proofhouse stamp on them. This would most likely be in some from of a crown logo. Most likely these were made between 1810 and 1840 judging from their style. Their design is almost like the martial pistols of their time.
