back to a 58!

My son shot his first deer with my old 58, which is now his. This Christmas he returned the favor and we will both be toting 58's! Already having fun getting my load ready!

1858 New Army or 58 cal rifle?

Just interested if you're shooting pistols or rifles.

Now a .58 caliber pistol

Now a .58 caliber pistol would be a hoot to shoot.  I might have to do some searching and see if anyone makes one.  If not I may have to head down to my friend house that has a mini lathe and see what we can turn out.

I had the 1858 New Army .44

I had the 1858 New Army .44 cal pistol in mind when asking. It looks like in doing so I've given the idea for a monster. I know the "musket" style pistols are mostly .50. Don't think I've seen anything bigger.

I would get one in 58!

The TC Scout Pistol came in 54 and I always thought if they came in 58 I would get one! Cabelas offers a double pistol in 58 and I have been considering that... I always ask myself; "Is it a need?" and I am thinking it is. smile

Were you looking at the

Were you looking at the Pedersoli Howdah double barrel pistol at Cabela's?  I have been looking at it for a couple of years and think that is would be a hoot to shoot and take hunting.  It is interesting in that the specifications say that it is a smoothbore but reading the reviews one says that the barrels are rifled so who knows. 

If others are wondering what we are talking about here is a link to it

The 20 gauge is smooth bore,

The 20 gauge is smooth bore, but the 58 is rifled. I have actually found several single barrell pistols in 58 in the last couple days... I have got the bug...
