ROLLING THUNDER ! The Wife and I , Remington and Colts , Fire and Flame
 
Well , we did our job today as Citizens of the USA . We made fire and smoke in a big way today . My wife is one heck of a shot , and I have now taught her to be SAFE , confident , knowledgable , and profficient in cap and ball shooting and the owning of these very cool weapons . These are my proud pictures of my petite wife doing her thing with her and even my weapons . She shoots her Navy Pocket Colt well , then picks up my 1860 Colt and the Remington 58 and puts lead on the paper . I am beyond proud of this woman , and now she tells me she loves this stuff ! I did my duty as a husband and citizen today to spread this sport .
Here's the day and the pics to prove it :

Getting ready to shoot hers , we use a mini-grease gun to grease over cylinders , we dont play around .

The very DIRTY GIRLS !

We had so much dang fun shooting together , all alone too on a crappy cold day , blowing through two flasks of powder and laughing and just enjoying eachother and the guns .
What amazed me was watching this little gal of 5'3" tall about 125 lbs , load the Remington and Colt up to 30 gr. and blast away putting a copious amount of balls in the black and even hitting the bull from time to time .
She ROCKS ! I love this Sport and lifestyle , my wife , my guns , her guns , and life .
Today is what life is all about , and we thank you everyone for letting us share a bit of US with you . No go out and freekin play !
