Thanks for the morning laugh!!!!!! :lol:Granted it's only a five shot revolver but, I can still "hit the heart" target practicing. If I can't get someone in five shots, I'm just going to throw up my hands and say "have at it"
Very good point.With those you very well could have a second round go off that was unintended and uncontroled and causes even more reaction from your horse. Just a little food for thought on the double action, semi auto, single action front.
It will be be for anything I may encounter in the North Georgia Mtns. Two legged, four legged, no legged. It will be carried which ever way is most comfortable. In the winter, concealed, in the summer open.asking what kind of gun is kind of like asking which truck should I get.:lol: It is all based on what your needs are. Will it be a concealed carry gun, open carry gun, self defense against 2 legged or 4 legged predators? stuff like that. Answer those questions and that will narrow down your options. I will say this and it is totally my opinion. With horses I like a single action revolver. (cowboy gun) the reason is two fold.
1. They are just reall cool guns and go well with horses like gunslinger stated. Nostalgia.
2. is a funtional thing. if your horse is not all that used to guns firing it may react adversely to the gun shot. It may spook and the natural reaction of most people is to tense up. Now your symathatic nervous system causes tension throughout your body, including your trigger finger that may still be on the trigger. Now with a single action revolver the gun will not fire again until you physically pull the hammer back. As opposed to a semi auto or and double action revovler. With those you very well could have a second round go off that was unintended and uncontroled and causes even more reaction from your horse. Just a little food for thought on the double action, semi auto, single action front.
This is what i carry if out riding( and not often) but it is totally because I like old timey(cowboy) stuff. It's an 1858 remington new army. Cap and ball. I wear it cross draw and it sts pretty well for how big it is.
