Default Widow Maker followed me home

Howdy,
Well, I bought a widow maker yesterday. It is a Rossi, 2" barrel in .44 mag. I shot it and it is not bad with .44 specials. With .44 mag. it is a handfull and a lot of fun. It has a column of fire around the projectile that is about 8" long. I think that the short barrel doesnt allow the gas build up which lessens the recoil. It is a fun gun for a little while. Have a goodun!!!!

Start a Photobucket account then you can upload your pictures there then paste in a link here to your photo.

For example below is a link to one of my pictures.

Yup- pics!
Why the Widow Maker? Personal nickname?
Only gun I've even known to be called a widowmaker is the very old Marlin 1897

Welcome to the site, please stop by the Introduction thread and let us know a little about yourself.

Congratulations on your new purchase.

Can't really help much, short of the photobucket idea already posted, without knowing what kind of technology you're working with. For example, if you have an iPad its pretty easy and I can talk you through it. Hope you figure it out because I'm itchin' for some pics! haha
