Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

gun The World's most Powerful Pistol – '1847 Walker Revolver'



The iconic Colt 1847 Walker Revolver was the game changer of the old west. Ian from Forgotten Weapons takes a look at an authentic Colt 1847 Walker Revolver, perhaps best known today as Clint Eastwood’s weapon in The Outlaw Josey Wales. Did you know that this massive cap-and-ball revolver was the most powerful revolver until the modern .357 Magnum cartridge was invented? That truth is certainly quite impressive. At the time, the Colt 1847 Walker Revolver would have been unlike anything ever experienced before.

I had a replica that rode under my seat for a while. Its name was, "Mr. Nasty".

My little brother pulled it once, when some bikers decided they were going to teach him a lesson. A lesson was learned that day, but they were ones who learned it.

Hmmm...been thinking of ordering one of those... or a 3rd model Dragoon's pistol...for awhile. A replica.

Or


Another 7" bbl, 1873, cavalry model Colt, in .45 LC. I had one from Cimmeron when you could still get them with a "distressed"...look.

A .44 Magnum case was the best powder measure for the one I had. A level load of FFF was just right.

Can you get a shoulder stock for one? Some guy on another forum is looking for one. Dixie and EMF is all I can think of in somewhat affordable $.

Years ago I had an 1860 Army, Colt replica. I didnt like shooting it because the handgrips were so small. Soldiers or men...must have been ...little...back then.

Got a pair of them. They are a handful and heavy. I like the dragoons also. Been looking for replica dragoon with the stock attachments and rifle type rear sight.

I got Cimarron's new color catalog last week and have been drooling. I used to stock and sell a lot of their pistols back when I was doing the shows . They always have really nice stuff and still offer what they call their "Original finish." I can see they are going to be getting more of my business.
