    Thank you sir, I've had it for almost 30 years now and it's a splendid shooter.
    Use to have quite a few firearms back in the 80's till someone decided to break into my home.
    I still grieve about it. :(

    A fellow once told me he had a cap and ball pistol that accidentally discharged out one side of the cylinder. Is that possible?

    Very possible if he had a misfire and passed it by cocking the hammer back again which would move the misfire to the outside of the chamber.
    Just that action or firing off another shot can cause it to go off. When ever you have a misfire you should always stop firing and aim the firearm
    at the target or in a safe direction for at least 30 seconds, then if the round doesn't go off carefully unload it from the gun.

    Yes, it's called a chainfire and it might be from pilot error in the modern era. In the Old West and especially if reloading during a firefight, safe loading practices were probably not used. It would need a just fitting lead ball and/or one w/ damage like a deep groove or notch where it rests against the cylinder wall. Most balls used in blackpowder revolvers now are a bit oversized and they self-trim when forced into the cylinder by the rammer. That creates a near perfect seal with the ball in front of the powder. Putting a wad or grease over that reduces chainfire potential even further. If though a defective load was next up to the one being fired, flashover from the forcing cone could travel back into that cylinder to the powder and ignite it. It probably wouldn't damage a Remington 1858 top-frame pattern but Colt open-top style ones (1860, 1851, etc.) might be.

    Yes soundmotor I stretched the frame on my colt 1863 navy by using heavy loads where as the Remington handled them easily.I shot tons on balls through the 1858 army and never had an issue .I cant even remember a misfire either.I miss that revolver.Maybe overkill but I always used a wad and grease with no exceptions.Also enjoy my hawking rifle ,that's a hoot.Must of took a brave man to tackle a grizz with one shot from a front loader.

    There used to be a guy that brought his flintlock Hawken out to my club range. Besides the KaaaBOOM! there was usually a 6 foot smoke plume out the front. Very fun to watch. After 10 shots or so he'd be filthy w/ unburned powder & soot all over his face & hands from the primer pan discharge. I use to think owning a flintlock was silly but that looked like great fun to me. I probably will have one at some point.

    I knew I would love this site, music, guns, rods, killer stereo equipment. I'm 61 now, have been a collector since the early 70s. My wife tells me I'm

    C,
    I'm a collector. I love the Hunt for stuff, as much as I love finding, dickering and purchasing kit. Was a police officer for 25 years, ALWAYS carried a 1911Colt. Nothing fancy just a model 70 with just the right stuff. Got a safe full of 1911s and P-35s " Hi Power" lots of Glocks.

    Also into long range shooting. We can shoot 1760y here, got 30 ar 500 steel targets out at the ranch. We don't usually shoot the mile, were unable to call splash, for corrections.

    Nice weapons fella's

    The likelihood of a intruder of the human variety coming into my house with intent to do harm is very slim to none, but we do get the occasional brown bear in the yard as evidence with the claw marks on my shed where the garbage sits until the next dump run, or mischief around the compost bin. If one decided to make a run at our kitchen door I need something to stop it. I usually keep either the Ruger Blackhawk 44 mag or Super Redhawk in 454 Casull loaded with heavy cast lead, either of which will dispatch.

    Most bears are pretty intelligent and seem to know the pandora's box they are opening when breaking down the door to a house, but it does occur.

    Intruders are not necessarily a problem here but in this day and age, plus the fact I live in suburbia near a large city, I have to be prepared.

    I have a choice of firearms, from several 1911's placed in the house, to a Mossberg 12 ga. "alley sweeper". I practice with them all routinely so as to be ready if and when needed.

    Practice is important and so often overlooked. It isn't even so much about bettering accuracy either imo. I need to do it more often than I do..

    For me practice maintains proficiency and consistency. I'm not worried about hitting the same hole each time with a .45 ACP. Rather, it's about control and placing that round on the target, and in a kill zone, each and every time.

    At longer ranges with my rifles, I want to do the same thing but at longer ranges and a bit more accurate results.

    I agree... it's totally about maintaining familiarity. I too need to do it more often than I do... I can sense the distancing.
