    I started collecting guns because of my father.. He is a "frontier" junkie, and has read about almost everything about the american frontier, it's expansion, and it's History.. And each time we went to the US, we did visit places that are linked to it (Fort Laramie, Little Big Horn, Tombstone, Oregon trail, etc etc). I must admit, as a History student, it fascinate me as well !

    after a while of this, I started collecting and shooting guns related to it !

    I still need some guns to complete my collection (kentucky and Pennsylvana rifles, 1860 henry, 1876 Winchester, 1875 Remington revolver) , but I find that its already worth looking at !!! I hope you enjoy my picture, and I'm looking forward to yours ! When I look at gunbrocker, I see hundreds of items that could fullfill my dreams ! lucky you !

    ps: let see if you can ID all of these guns, that are firing replicas (mostly Uberti Cimmaron) of 140+ YO existing models (except the coach gun) !

    Thanks,
    They are old style Ruger Vaqueros 5 1/2" in .357 mag.
    The rifle is a Puma 92 in .357 mag.
    The shotgun is Turkish chambered in 12 gauge.
    The bowie knife came with the Puma.
    The stag handle knife was hand made by my dad.

    I should have guessed at the cylinder size !

    Very nice collection.

    My 1873 RIfle is also chambered in 357mag. Not historical, but allows flatter ballistics than 44-40 (in my 1866 rifle and 1873 carbine)

    .357 is my caliber of choice for shooting all day. They are cheap to load and very accurate. I also have a Winchester model 94 in .45 Colt and the pride of my collection which is a 1st generation Colt Peacemaker 4 3/4" chambered in .45 Colt

    That I could not do. To the best of my knowledge she is as she came from the factory over 100 years ago, it would probably dop a lot off the value f I changed anything.

    its totally reversible anyway.. just a screw. You could alway keep the original grips-

    but she's beautiful anyway !!!
