    I have a Lyman .50 and .54 plains pistol, both are tack drivers but would be hard to choose between them and my Ruger Old Army, who happens to have a .45 Colt cylinder too. It shoots great as cap an ball, have taken 2 deer with it shooting 210gr slugs I cast up for it!!!

    My favorite is my only BP pistol at the moment, a Pietta 1851 Navy in 36 caliber. It is a very nice looking revolver,but has been a source of frustration. After replacing nipples and a little file work on the hammer it seems to function ok for the time being.
    My next will be a 1858 Remington .

    The one I shoot most often is an old Uberti .36 Remington revolver..... it's built on a .44 frame, so the cylinder/chamber walls are extraordinarily thick (very handy for experimenting with homebrew powders).

    I really enjoy my Brass 1858 44 reproneverwas .
    But I also like the Colts Dragoon repro I recently acquired .
    I have several others but I expect these 2 will stay until I can't shoot them anymore .

    My favorite is the only pistol I own. It's a nice .50 flintlock and shoots better than I can.

    Young guys should hang out with old guys; old guys know stuff.

    Beautiful. The grip looks very practical.
