    The revolving cylinder rifle looks like a Colt Patterson revolving cylinder carbine, caliber .55, Model 1839-1842.

    If so, Some called it "Colt’s revolving wheel of misfortune. The reason was that a multiple miss-fire on a pistol was not serious; at worst the pistol might be damaged. But with a long arm, because the person firing it was supporting the barrel with one hand forward of the cylinder, a multiple miss-fire could cost him a hand.

    This was one of the 2 revolving cylinder rifles used by the Texian Navy and Marine Corps.

    The other was the hammerless Colt Patterson revolving cylinder rifle, caliber .40, Model 1838-1842.

    Any sold to the Texian Navy had a 5 pointed embedded in the right side of the stock.

    My most recent acquisition. Springfield Armory Mod.2 in 9mm. It was on sale & got 4 free magazines, free 2 mag belt holder & holster.

    Also picked up 3 Pearce Grip extensions for the compact mags. They work GREAT & make ALL the difference for my hand grip with the compact mags.

    And, here is 2 targets, 7yds, holstered, draw & fire as fast as i can. Not pretty but would be a DOA.

    I really like this gun so far. Picked up a "Just Holster It" holster & really like that as well. Quality, fair price & local.

    I couldn't pass up $214 for the M&P Shield. Picked it up this morning before heading off for a weeks vacation near Skyline Drive in Virginia. Can't wait to put a few (hundred) rounds through it. ;)

    Currently debating between this and an LCR in 9mm. Considering I already have a GP100 Wylie Clapp for hammering nails and using as a paperweight, the LCR might win out, although it pains me to admit that.

    A revolver in 9mm has always sounded bizarre to me, though it certainly piques my curiosity when I think about it. I have the LCR in .357 with a Trijicon front sight. It is a great little gun, have been pretty happy with it.

    and it comes with a kershaw A/O knife.

    Right up around that bend to the right, a hen ran across the trail and lifted off an then went down in a puff like a ME109 in the Battle of Britain 4th or 5th for the day. My wife actually caught it with her big lens as the hen took the hit. I will have to get it from her. I usually have on my gopro I film the dogs as they are working the birds I think I enjoy just watching a good dog work more then the hunt lol

    Beautiful Hund. I hunt over a Deutsch Langhaar and a French Brittany. Had to put down our Deutsch Kurzharr Rosie last year after 15 years. Rosie could wind a bird in Hurricane:( I miss that dog
