    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 .

    Now my turn to BURN IT DOWN !

    [​IMG]

    The very DIRTY GIRLS !

    [​IMG]

    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 !

    Looks like a fun day to me KAB. Unfortunately I can't get my wife to use any of my smokers. She won't even go to the range with me when I break out the black powder pieces. She prefers bullets over balls I guess. That's alright though, I got her daughter into it last summer and we have range days like that.:D Keep your powder dry and carry on!

    Good Point Kfox


    You brought up a good point Kfox75 . Alot of people/woman are afraid of Black Powder guns for some reason , very unjustifiably , but true nonetheless:confused: My EX-Girlfreind was this way too , she would shoot the 1911's all day long but would refuse to shoot any of my revolvers and especially revolvers shooting BP out of them :confused: This is why she is an EX-girlfriend among many other reasons , but , don't knock something prior to investigating it is what I always live by .
    I think its very important to start your wife or girlfriend out with the History of the guns , how they work as apposed to modern cartridge guns , explain to them they are safe is safe hands , and then try to drag them to the range to watch you . If you happen to spark a desire in them to shoot one , make sure your patient , NO YELLING , and get them one that aint a Walker Colt so it wont scare them away first shot . A Colt Pocket is ideal or the Pocket Remington would be good too .
    I was fortunate in that my wife has Warthog tendencies and wants more POWER :D Some girls are like that , some are not ;)
    But, there is a flip side to sharing your sport with the wife . And that is do you really want to share your sport with your wife ? You have to answer that for yourself . If your relationship is good to great to start with then its a fun thing to do with them , but on the other hand you may give up your only escape from your wife if she wants to go to the range with you :eek:
    Weigh this aspect very carefully prior to deciding to getting them into the sport . Be careful what you ask for you just might get it !
    To me its been BLISS though and has brought us closer together :)
    If you've ever kissed a girl that smells like BP soot and grease and Channel #5 then you'll know what I mean :p

    KAB;
    This is obviously the trophy wife. I'm gonna take mine out to shoot one day -- and I remind her of this whenever she gets out of hand.

    ;)

    So, what is that flamethrower thing going on in one of those pics?

    Hee hee hee

    Hee hee hee , ohhhh thats funny :D

    Umm , no flame thrower , its what your naked eye can't generally see unless its at night , and it happens in a millisecond , so catching it on camera is a feat in itself trust me . Every shot out of a Black Powder Revolver loaded with real BP does this every single time . You just don't notice it its so fast igniting . It is very impressive at night , trust me , especially 50 to 60 gr. out of a Walker Colt:eek: It lights the night right on up . :D
