    I've started to collect some Colt Blackpowder pistols. Watching the Ruger Army tests on this site has got me thinking I want to get something to shoot. I had a Ruger Army years ago and hardly shot it but think it's time to do it again. The question is should I get another Ruger or get one of the Colt copies. It looks like the Rugers are bringing a hefty price and I think I can get a colt copy for a bit more than half the price. I know the Ruger is a stronger gun and stainless may be a lot easier to clean. How much will I shoot it? Don't know. Just curious about your thoughts.

    Pietta or uberti 1858 Remington in my opinion are a good choice for someone just getting into black powder pistols.
