Kinda, sorta looks like a Walker-Colt.
357 of its day.
I’m gonna go with an 1860 Army model. My favorite is the 1861 Navy.
As noted below, I was not aware of the jab rule either. Lamp posts. Rope. Some assembly required. Seriously, line the streets with the bastards.
Yep. 1860 Army .44. Zed needs to fix that boy up with some upgraded firepower to properly defend the Daughter.
Retire great great great granddaddy’s Colt to the mantle where it belongs.
If he’s stuck on revolvers, may I suggest a Ruger Classic Redhawk in .45acp/.45colt. In that pistol, with decent brass, .45colt can be loaded hotter than .44mag , and with a lower chamber pressure.
BBQ Gun. And worth about 20 Hawglegs. He has a working gun or three within reach too no doubt, boy ain’t no babe in the woods, or on the ranch.
“fix that boy up with some upgraded firepower”
In one of our early (1995) Texas concealed handgun classes I had a cowboy (real deal) ask if he could take the practical with his single-action revolver. There was no rule against it.
He shot faster than those with semiautos, and reloaded faster than those with DA revolvers. After 50 rounds at three, seven and 15 yards he had two “flyers” in the 9-ring. He KNEW that gun.
If it ain’t broke; don’t fix it.
Oh well. As the proud owner of a spider-infested shotgun. I really do not recognize nice black powder guns. Looks nice though.
Nice piece Jack; when in Texas, do as Texans do…
I was not aware of the fed jab rule; what Constitutional rights?
They’re mandatory for all J6 political prisoners, but I think other federal prisoners can choose.
I believe that still wasn’t a tested and fully approved drug.
They are still violating the ‘Nuremberg Code’ concerning forced application of experimental drugs or systems.
But what’s a Mengele or Fauci type action amongst forced ‘friends.’ Supposedly acting for the greater good.
Forcing experimental drugs on people is a “……………………………..”
I would love to have a video of him shooting the cap and ball revolver from the class. I have a Navy Arms and I cannot conceive of how he could out reload a semi auto pistol. I’d like to pick up some reloading tips from him!
I doubt Jerry Miculek could out-reload a semi using a cap and ball revolver.
A cartridge SA ? I wouldn’t take that bet.
My .357 Blackhawk came with a 9mm cylinder and you couls swap them fairly fast with a little practice.
The range I used in the 80’s wasn’t really into IPSC/PPC, we practiced the matches for the National military matches mostly.
One time however, we had a visitor from Calgary who was heavily into IPSC and was determined to ‘show us how it’s done’.
I remember he had a .38 Super ‘race gun’ with a belt full of magazines and didn’t really have much nice to say about anyone else’s choices.
He got under my skin just a little bit.
One scenario started with you as a bank manager sitting at a desk with your weapon tucked under some papers in an in-box, three targets were at very close range in front of you, one had apparently been turned down for a loan and came back with ‘friends’, armed.
He went first and ran through two magazines.
I was one of the last ones and used the Blackhawk.
Held the trigger back and thumb-cocked six rounds in less than three seconds, then stopped, obviously.
All X’s, at that range I could have touched them with a 7ish” barrel.
When the dust settled and his ‘box’ gave the numbers, between the length of time used to hit each target ‘at least’ twice, hits and more importantly power factor (I was using 158gr JHP’s at just under warp speed), I’d beaten his score by just enough he couldn’t complain 🙂
He grumbled instead “what would you have done if there were four of them ?”
I just shrugged and answered “head shots”
Corona? Jan ‘n Zed need to give her (and him?) a good talkin’ to! Get those kids on the Shiner before they go too far astray…
I’m liking this Jack guy more and more though, both for the revolver and the attitude!
@John+M Shiner’s OK. Lone Star is the National Beer of Texas, though.
To anyone who financed, developed, produced, distributed, administered, or mandated an mRNA injection in any capacity:
There is no punishment sufficient to answer for your crimes against humanity. Nothing that could possibly be done to you would even begin to approach “cruel and unusual.”
The only accomplishment of note in your worthless existence is to make Dr. Josef Mengele look like Mother Theresa.
Do yourselves and the world a favor and swallow a bullet. You will find that a far more preferable and pleasant experience than what the immediate future holds in store for you.
Political crimes get the guillotine.
Crimes against humanity go feet-first into the Big Morbark®.
It’s about throughput.
How about stone arrows for the shots instead
I prefer a healthy dose of aeris et plumbi administered subcutaneously to the viscera.
My Ruger Blackhawk .45 convertible with the .45 Colt cylinder launches a 300 grain gas checked hard cast handload at 1300+ FPS. Yes, it’s a handful. My friends call it my T-Rex load!
How about a modified tranq gun that injects fast curing rubber into someone’s blood stream? A close analog to how the jab is actually killing people. Ask your local family funeral director how many bizarre “clots” they’ve had to remove from corpses to get embalming fluids to pump properly.
Yeah, that creeping loading lever means late-series Colt cap & ball–1860/61/62. A little long in the tooth, but it beats hell outta throwing rocks.
Why does Kiko talk so differently from her parents? “Skeert “? Is this home schooling that failed to teach her pronunciation?

Those black powder pistols can be ordered by mail. No registration required. Quickest way to reload them — change the cylinders. Might not wish such as a maingun. But, as a hideout if the man comes a looking.
I ran into a guy last summer who’s car gun was a repro Griswald & Gunnison. Basically, a .44 cal Confederate copy of the 1858 Navy.
He was shocked I recognized it, but that’s mainly because I have one of my own.
Bad finger discipline there Jack. Finger off the trigger until you’re on target. Unless those feds are in a helicopter…
Take a closer look. You can plainly see the fingertip protruding past the front of the trigger guard. Good form . . .
@Mark. His fingertip is clearly visible on the far side of the trigger guard. On the other hand (nyuck, nyuck), maybe he’s just getting in a little happy fire.
If that’s his finger protruding… then he’s got a rather short finger, based on the proportions of the other three. Hope the ‘wive’s tale’ ain’t true in all cases.
It looks like the third knuckle is more flexible than mine and the fingertip is on the trigger. Chris’d know…
Query. Jack’s weapon as shown would cause problems for certain persons in determining the weapon which administered Justice?
“…problems for certain persons in determining the weapon which administered Justice?”
Slightly but very importantly edited to “…the weapon with which justice was administered”
And the answer to that query becomes absolutely, good catch! Everybody should have a front-stuffer prepped with a particularly virulent load for certain circumstances regarding certain persons.
Thank you JTC for the correction. My six month old kitten discovered the JOY of playing with my keyboard while I’m typing
YW. Dang cat’s name ain’t “Brady” is it?
Orange cats are named Orange in my home. He’s a real pistol
It’s great that none of our gun people on this never said the Long Colt expression which is wrong. It’s also assuring most identified the cap and ball. The problem with that one is a lot of replica manufactures go out of their way to make sure their product isn’t mistaken for an original. A lot of the replicas are historically wrong but they do look and operate nicely. It almost looked like it has cylinder flutes which would have made it the police model. I think it’s reflections from the nickel plating.
Chris, it would be a blessing to me if you had the young ladies correct their vocabulary. They are home schooled. The girls shouldn’t sound like trailer trash on a Saturday night on closing. Besides, I live in Texas and the folks might have heavy accents but their annunciations are impeccable.
That “off” appearance from original might be CYA on the part of mfg’s?
The girls language skills are fine; love their Southern vernacular.
And in this case I think the words you wanted were grammar not vocabulary, and pronunciation or enunciation not annunciation, unless those Texas folks go around announcing everything impeccably. 😉
Yes, darn auto-correct. I still can’t stand the backwoods enunciation. There was a lovely young lady at the factory. I never had a chance to talk to her but once and then it was chalk on a blackboard. I’m not fond of New Jersey accents so there’s that.
Again. Effing Rino pussy bastards…
I was just talking to a gun collector friend about deer hunting as he is an old hunting buddy way up in the frozen tundra. He is into cowboy shooting and wanted a heavy brush load also. I remember some of those hunts. Interesting that he just got a Ruger Single Action for 300-grain bullets. It is of course, for .45 Long Colt. I should get one to go with the old shotgun.
Wisconsin Gave Darrell Brooks, the fellow who drove into the Waukesha Christmas Parade last year, the maximum sentences they could, which don’t include Death. But as I was telling someone else, they can always give ‘im the needle anyway…
