I have my carry guns. I have hunting guns. These I want just because they’re pretty:
Colt Walker replica, I’d convert it to cowboy rounds because I just don’t want to deal with black powder.
And I’ve been loving on this Socom 16 M1A I first saw right here at USCCA:
Finally, a Barrett M82A1 .50Cal:
The Walker would blow up if you tried to use smokeless powder in it even if you changed out the cylinder. Might want to reconsider.
There are a few manufacturers that produce conversion kits designed to work with “Cowboy” rounds. As far as I can tell it’s essentially black powder in a cartridge. When I say I don’t want to deal with black powder, I mean in terms of hand loading powder and cap and ball
Just giving you a head’s up. Make absolutely sure if you buy a replica whether or not they’ll handle modern ammo.
Even the most modern inline muzzle loaders will blow up with even a very mild load of smokeless powder.
I’ve seen the results of guns blowing up for various reasons, hate to see it happen and hate it even worse if it happened to someone I know even casually.
Thank you! I appreciate the heads up. I’m sure it will be a while before I can sneak that canon in past my wife anyway

Well that’s good to hear! So, the Barrett and Socom will be no trouble at all hum?
I already owned three M14’s and M1A’s when the SOCOM first came out.
I convinced the wife that the SOCOM was made specifically for women. It quickly became her hog gun.
Wasn’t real thrilled with the .375 Cheytac though.

If money were no object, we’d replace the Desert Eagle .50AE we sold with a new pair of them… and of course we’ll need a boatload of ammo for them
And if you’re buying, the hubby would like an M1 Garand.
A Korth .357, a Beretta 92 Limited, and a Nighthawk Customs 1911. Right after I get a Schofield .45 in 95% condition! That should about do it.

yep that’s about what we all need
If that doesn"t cover it it can’t be covered.
You people are thinking small.
Cause money is NO OBJECT!
In ADDITION to my other choices, 1 Abrams.

If money was NO object
Seriously though, I’d have a Korth Mongoose, a Nickel plated Python, a Desert Eagle in .50, and a 6 1/2 inch pinned and recessed Smith and Wesson Model 29.
Reality bends under the weight of enough money. Even physics can be extended, if not outright bent.
