The conversation.

The little one says "Hey, get offa' me".

The big one says ... keep runnin' ... and fast.

The NAA cap and ball is on my wish list for sure.

I don't know if I EVER want a "revolving" hand cannon. Although I do like the Traditions Trapper and I've been reading this evening that Pietta has improved that one recently.

Just for giggles I found this site I've never seen:

http://powderbarrel.com/

while I was poking the embers in the internet hearth.

The NAA C&B is not really practical for anything but having fun.. It has a good bark to it when packed with T7.

It has an even better bite with 2gr of Bullseye. There were several posts in the past so I tried it and it's got the power of a 22LR or even better.

In the video at the end they had a bayonet attached to the cylinder pin. The ultimate mini gun.

Are you breedin' 'em or is the little one the "offspring"?

Either way - a nice looking set of shooting irons!

You going to Friendship in June? We will be there. Wonder how they would
like the Walker on the pistol line? Pistol line is where we will be. This makes
18 years now. Getting almost too old to go.

Hey . . . . you're never too old to go to Friendship! I've had to skip the last couple of years but hopefully this spring, i can make it. Now . . . . I am getting a little to old to do the "primitive" thing like I used to . . . for some reason I'm a little bit stiffer in the morning after sleeping on the gound.

We're on our way back from AZ for the summer and barring any problems, I hope to make it for a day anyway. For those that have never had the "Friendshp" experience . . . you need to go . . . simply put . . . lots of fun . . . good people . . . good times!

Let me know what day. We will be getting targets at the pistol shack
Monday morning. Daughter will be shooting Monday afternoon. Wife will
be shooting Tue-Thur. I'll just be hanging around. We shoot down on the
end right next to the shotgun range. I'm the old guy with the young blonde
wife that shoots like a bat out of hell. She's won now 5 times. Mebby see ya!
