Powder stains on vest and hat LOL! You can tell I shoot an 1873 from the powder spots on the brim of my hat, from shot brass landing there. The wide brim keeps them from going down my shirt on hot days! I hope to shoot the Walker soon. I've been busy with chores, and Betty has had a migraine for about 10 days, a bad one. Can't getting as much done when my pards down like that. She is up and feeling better now, so we got a lot more done today.
Oh, I almost forgot. Someone's bound to ask, the leather rig is from The Last Best West.

I don’t plan on shooting at SASS. We have had some cowboys shoot cap & ball. I’m already slow enough, without adding more work. The Walker is just for fun on the home range.

That's what they all say at first...then comes the second Walker...then the '66...Rolan speaks the truth...I know him well Razz

Please, inform the ignorant. I recognize the revolver. Smile But what is the telescoping brass thing?

And the flat brass thing that looks like a white-out-strip dispenser? In one of the later Richard Sharp novels by Bernard Cornwell, a fellow had a rifled percussion pistol which used a "cap" of powder within a wafer of copper foil. And I'm thinking 'connection' between the two things.

I've just finished the 21 books, read in order. Lots of neat details of the fighting man.

Right, my best matches were the ones where I was the only one shooting that category! LOL
I was never fast like some of the Cowboys are. Slow and steady, I tried to shoot clean.

I hear ya. I already shoot a '73. Although who doesn't like a '66 with that pretty brass frame?

Powder measure.

Correct it is a powder measure that fits into the powder flask for easy loading of the powder. It is adjustable, with a thumb screw that locks it at the gain setting you select.

Yes, I know about the cartridge conversion to .45 Colt for the Walker. Thanks, I may get one some day.
The Renaissance Wax can is full of my beeswax & Crisco mix. Tallow is better I've read, but I'm going to try this and see how it does. If the mix is too runny, I can easily melt and add more beeswax. The small tins have it in them as well. The open syringe pulls mix from Wax can, then I use it to load a syringe with the end just he right size to load the cylinder chamber, the markings allow me to load approximately the same amount each cylinder chamber. Nice and not messy while shooting.
The brass funnel is for pouring powder from measure to chamber without getting powder on the chamber mouth to get pinched between the ball and chamber. I plan to load the lube behind the ball. It is a non-traditional way, but still effective to prevent chain fire, if you make sure no powder is crushed by the ball when loading.

Yes, you are correct it is a percussion cap holder/loader. They make in-line cappers as well. I have some of those too. This one holds 100 caps.

I like my cap n ball revolvers, but my C. Richards conversions are by far my favorite.

Best of both worlds.

You mean like these?
Or maybe a Ruger Old Army to go with it. Something like these.

No, your right Rolan, have to be another Walker to keep me in balance, can't be listing to Port!
