New member says thanks...

...for all the great info!

This forum has been invaluable for getting me going on this new avenue of my firearms hobby. Got my entry-level holster "soaked and shrunk", and the whole kit treated with Ballistol after an afternoon at the range. (Which my Grandpa's old A5 shotgun really likes as well)

It seems to like #10 caps, and the supplied .451 balls are leaving a ring, so I guess things are good there.

Loaded/capped one chamber to start and it went boom, so I filled all six and said, "How about that bottle?" at about 20 yards, and darned if I didn't hit it.

Anyhow, thanks again.

A thing of Beauty you got there...seems to shoot pretty good too. Congrads on the Rem Rev, and fittin' the holster to it. And winnin' the showdown of the 20yd waterbottle.
