My black powder Navy 1851

I purchased my first gun inspired by Blondie. It’s the Colt Navy 1851 replica by Pietta with silver rattlesnake inlays. It’s beautiful and I love shooting it at the range. It’s quite heavy and takes a long time to load, but it’s a good start and strangely I really enjoy disassembling, cleaning and reassembling it ! I usually end up like Blondie looking through the barrel before the hotel shoot out. Unfortunately my aiming is far from good so far 🙂

A great source of information on guns and rifles in the movies is http://www.imfdb.org
