Bang Bang

 

John’s old 1849 .31 caliber Colt percussion revolver can still be fired.  Percussion caps, black powder, lead balls, and wadding are all available to the collector. The hammer hits and sparks a cap which ignites black powder which propels a round ball out the barrel in a fiery flash engulfed in a cloud of smoke.

  4. Let us see a shot of John firing it, and see if you can arrange for a loan of one of Ed McDowell’s Kilts to make it a really interesting image LoL Nice detail.
