    StrawHat..Very impressive!!
    However...I have noticed that you have 13 pieces there and that they are gathered around in an ominous appearing circle!!
    I have read of such circles sir, and have studied the number 13 at length!!!!....

    Several of my single actions are to shy to be photographed, those pictured are the sociable ones!

    that proves that his lever doesn't drop every time and that he can hit things. The knee thing is neat too.

    OK, here's the photo, since I'm now at home.

    HPIM0911-1.gif

    Top to bottom: Fake '51 ( I say fake because Colt never made a brass framed, .44 caliber '51; '60, '63, Walker with R&D cylinder, my first Walker.
    I just can't get a good photo of the coins inset into the grips, but they are dimes made in '51, '60 and an '47 half dime.

    The top Walker was given to me by my brother. The engraving on the cylinder reads:

    TD McDaniel
    Revolving Pistol
    Manufacturers
    Made in McCurtain
    County, Indian Territory

    On the top of the barrel, Serial NO 1 of 1
    On the left side of the frame, Model Number 1, Pulp Special

    Of course I have the percussion cylinder also. In the video I'm shooting the percussion cylinder.

    I not a coin collector so I really can't answer the question with authority, but if I remember correctly the term nickle wasn't used for coins until the 5 cent piece made from nickle metal was introduced. A half dime and a nickle are obviously the same amount of money. I couldn't find a '47 dime, so I got the half dime.

    I got the coins from eBay, just bid on the cheapest one I could find. I wasn't interested in condition, as long as the date was legible. For example, I have a '92 Morgan dollar on my Rossi '92. I got it for $12.00, the next one on the list was going for around $20,000. I didn't bid on it. I haven't paid more than $15.00 for any of them.

    Scrat, I just used a dremel tool and pocketknife to carve out the grip a bit so the coin would fit. I kinda overdid it on my Rossi, it doesn't look very good.

    Snaggle, set up an account with http://www.photobucket.com and put your pictures into it. Then under each photo you'll see 4 different tags. One of the tags will begin with [img and end with img]. Copy that tag and paste it into a thread when you start the thread.

    Bigbadgun, I'vd alway's had trouble on this site.

    This morning I registered and opened an account on 'photobucket' but it was too complicated plus I don't like keeping my pictures in some 'storage' site. So I deleted my account and will check tomorrow to make sure all the photographs have been deleted from their site.

    I take my pictures with my Hewlett Packard, I use the USB cable and download them to my computer, then I sit here and resize the photographs and that's all there is to it. They (as you know) are easy to post directly from the computer to any site. (except for this one)

    I understand THR is trying to upgrade their equipment to correct the problem. I imagine they're doing the best they can. They'll get it worked out.
    Well, if anybody ever want's to see a photograph of mine they will fix it because I'm not using any type of outside storage facility for anything I keep on my computer.

    Bigbadgun, my new Uberti First Model Dragoon came in awhile ago. Remember I told you back around this past Christmas that I was trying to lay aside a little money for one. I haven't done much with it yet, just stripped it down and sprayed it good with some super lubricant and then wiped it down real good. Then I rubbed all the part's down good with Cabela's MuzzleLoading Lube. It's laying over there on a towel now. I'll put it back together tomorrow. I ain't in any kind of hurry to shoot that damn thing. I just got it so I could say I have one. I'll put it away and keep it.

    I already know exactly how it would shoot anyway. In the first place I can already tell it function's perfectly but I expected no less from Uberti. Plus I know just as sure as I know I'm sitting here in this chair that the .44 Walker will out range it and is more accurate further on out there than the Dragoon.

    I don't really give a damn one way or the other about the noise or the smoke. I'm completely indifferent to that. I do like making my own 'round' in the primitive manner, and I do like all the gear like possible bags, and powder flasks and all that go's
    along with it. I get a lot of enjoyment out of using blackpowder. (Triple Seven [3fff]) Other than that stuff all I'vd ever been concerned about is the accuracy of a piece whether modern cased or cap and ball. As far as I'm concerned for myself, if a gun is not dependable and won't shoot straight and consistent then it's worthless to me, period. Hell, I'd be better off with a damn crossbow....Add on--well now! Looky here! Thank you kindly Mr. THR!....
