Self Defense / 1860 Army 3 inch 44 cal "Thunderer"

I have had this gun for about a year now.I got it from Old South.Put about 50 rounds thrue it I have been using 30gr  of Pyrodex with a .454 balls.  What a joy to shoot . At 10 yards with a 2 hand hold not on the bags,it shoots in side of 2 inches at exact POI. Mine has the old 1860 Army cylinder. I have been thinking about some using some Triple 7 FFFG in it. That sounds like fun. I have a CCW,so I take out,just for the heck of it.  It never has misfired ,or had a cap jam,yet  At the range, it gets a lot of looks.  What a fun gun to shoot! Would make one heck of a bedside gun! Just a note, they make a 1851 Navy Model too.  My next gun {Navy} in ,36 cal.


      That is NICE!!!

I have 4 (four) of Mike's holsters. I told him what I wanted,and they turned out perfect. They fit the guns right on the money. Mike,post a pic or two of my holsters.Your pics are way better than mine.    Almost to nice to lug around in the woods.   Well worth the money!

I would guess that one handed would be the rule of the day. But when blasting a way with a Colt Walker,or a Dragoon, I think 2 hands would be allowed. With the Walker, its the 4 1/2 pounds pulling down that is the hard part. Real front end heavy. I know,I have one of each. Makes a right nice club though.
