A Brummie Dude
before the ban in 1996. we had members at the club with all sorts of hand guns. i fired everything from 22.short to 45.Interesting that in actual fact although there were five Buntline specials, there is no proof that Earp ever carried one. Ned Buntline was a dime novelist who wrote Westerns making heroes of people like Earp, Cody et al and commissioned the guns from Colt. Some other firearms manufacturers did make long barrel guns and apparently in the fifties Colt did extend the length of their Navy revolver. There is some interesting history on Google. When I was doing my national service, I had to fire off and condemn some weapons, amongst them was a Webley revolver, so I tried quick drawer and fire. An almost impossible task, landed on my back twice, jarred my arm and just missed my foot. Nuff sai
the worst was a smith and Weston. 44 magnum.hand gun the recoil was like being kicked by a horse.it went all through me down to my boots. it jumped up into the air. The colts were tame compared to that.thing.
