Great thread as I am new to the world of 'Cowboy Action Shooting" but I am a student of firearms history and have a decent understanding of their place in American History/Folklore.
I am looking into purchasing a Colt Walker 1847 as I have been enamored with the gun ever since I watched as a kid with my family (people used to actually do that
) the Classic mini-series "Lonesome Dove" where Robert Duvall's character, namely, Texas Ranger Augustus McCrae carried the classic revolver (almost a mini-rifle
) as his main sidearm.
I will rarely shoot this and it will mostly be a collector's item of which I may mount over my mantle and educate the yougsters on its place in our History.
I assume Cabela's is the best price for the Uberti model?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
