One of the first rules of gun safety . . . DON'T PLAY WITH GUNS . . they are not toys. Even a starter pistol could cause injury under the right circumstances - the first that comes to mind is having it discharge in an enclosed space (a room) and damaging your hearing. That said . . .
I hope you got it figured out . . . safely.
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63
