My gun

I finally won one of the Uberti 1851 Navys that I've been chasing for months now. Here is a picture. It'll probably arrive next week (from Texas, where else?).

What do you mean you "won" it?

Is it a prize you're getting for free, or did you "win" an auction?

By the way, the gun itself looks muy dolce (or should I say molto dolce?)

I meant muy dUlce/molto dolce.

I'm going to quit commenting now.

"Yay, 3 comments already! I wonder who commented?"

"Oh."

I won an auction at GunBroker.com. It is beautiful, thank you for noticing.

Thas'a pretty lookin thang . . .

Do you shoot em or just collect em? Or both?

This is my first real deal handgun. I plan on shooting it, but since it's black powder it's a bit of an ordeal, so I don't know when I'll get to. I don't know if a local gun range would allow black powder.

It's also for collecting and reference. :) It's THE Good Bad and Ugly gun.

Deng - it looks so awesome. I'm jealous! I have to get my mom to give me all my grandpa's guns - lots of 6 shooters, riffles, etc.

For reference of course . . . mua ha ha!

Your grandpa has six shooters and old rifles? That's awesome! Get on that! :)
