I wanted to add a comment about the experience of shooting the Dragoon

I have a Walker and because it is a good bit heavier and a good bit longer I have a tough time holding and aiming it at arms length. The Dragoons are a little more user friendly.

I said in the earlier post that I like an emotional experience (Smoke, fire and noise). The Dragoon takes a smaller charge than the Walker but the shorter barrel and lighter weight makes the recoil is more detectable than when shooting the Walker.

A heavy pistol with black powder accelerates rearward slowly and so the sensation is a push rather than a pop.

I love all of my handguns and I have no less regard for my Dragoons than any other that I own.
