Shooting steel with my Remington 1858 revolver. Back yard CBA

I’ve been shooting black powder revolvers for about a year and a half now and I’m just getting more and more into the sport. I take my Remington out just about every time I go to the range now. To save time and money I practice with my H&R .22lr revolver and then shoot with my Remington. I’ve gotten to the point where most days I can hit an 8” steel gong shooting one handed from 20 yards away about 5 out of 6 shots. I put up a video showing what I’m doing and how I’m training.

I plan on getting a London colt navy 1851 probably next month. My last colt navy did not shoot very well but I loved how it looked and felt.

Spitpatch plus one...

I have to drive nearly 30 minutes to get to my shooting spot.

I envy you.

Sounds silly but shooting one handed is a lot of fun. Makes it more challenging. Using my normal shooting stance I rarely miss and I'm getting to that point with shooting with one hand. I still can't hit jack shooting off hand though. Working on that.
