Central Pennsylvania Shooter

#1 Post by jimg » Sat Sep 21, 2019 3:50 pm

I'm a new member from a red region of Pennsylvania. I'm looking forward to firearms conversation without the interjection of conspiracy theories or bullshit propaganda. At 51, I've got a lot of range time under my belt and enjoy spending time at my local ranges when time permits.

I've also recently became a grandfather and my priorities regarding how I spend my time have shifted a bit. :lol:

Anything rifle or handgun. My cartridge gun collection and tastes ranges from a trapdoor Springfield to a AR pistol in 7.62 X 39, but mostly consists of bolt action rifles. I should say though that scatter guns aren't my thing though, but I do use them for hunting. I just don't shoot them recreationally.

I also have a modest assortment of front-stuffers and C&B revolvers.

I must admit to a morbid fascination with C&B wheel guns. Never shot one, but they just are fascinating, along with the rare revolver rifles.

Mine is a fairly recent purchase. It is stamped 1884.

They are a lot of fun and, in my opinion, remarkably accurate.

It looks like it's in good shape. I have picture on my phone, but it looks like I'll have not edit it before I can post it. 9.1 MB is too large.

it's a good rifle. i've shot it a couple of times. also have a little stash (80 or 100 rds) of ammo for it. i think the sights are mismatched for a model 73, i suspect bannerman had it for a while. definitely gets you out of the hi-cap mag dump way of thinking.
i usually edit pics down to 200 or 250 k, 20% (or 30% if i'm going to crop it close).

i see you posted your pic while i was posting. very nice. one of the things i like about the trapdoor is the obvious 1861 springfield heritage.

Yes, I got it in, and it does change your approach considerably, but I enjoy shooting the unusual stuff.

Mine seems to have been a Bannerman rifle too.

Welcome from a blue island in the red Georgia sea.

Just curious... how did you find the forum? I found it when I read an article that mentioned it.

Welcome home.

I found this forum by the smell; It was good. Others, not so much.

Thanks for the greetings and welcomes, everyone. It is good to find a place like this.

I agree, SubRosa. I feel really out of place on other firearms forums.

I was searching for info on a Palmetto State KS-47 and one of the hits I got was a post in the forum. I had to check out a group named the liberal gun club.
