Sometimes it just happens...

...whether you want it to or not. See, I've called a halt to my firearms purchasing for a while, but...





When something that gorgeous rolls along for $150, you TAKE IT.

Traditions .44 caliber model 1860 Army. No, I don't quite understand the naval battle rolled into the cylinder on an Army model, but hey, it's beautiful anyways.

And as a cap-and-ball, it's not legally a firearm... =D

Odd, my stepfather has one exactly like that, down to the scrolling naval scene on the cylinder. I just happen to ask him about it a few weeks ago, and he said that it was a kit that he put together some 20 odd years ago. Though admittedly, his handle carving skills looked more akin to what a deranged beaver might do...

Wow, that's stunning! I'd have grabbed that deal, too.
