If a cowboy came into your local with two cap guns, a Spencer carbine, and a hammered SxS, is your first reaction “Oh Lordy, bust out the sundial?”

This game is for fun.....YOUR FUN.

 If you do get a Spencer, you have to let me shoot it and not get mad because I drooled all over it.

I’m still trying to figure out how to shoot mine at a match and not turn all the rifle targets into knock downs. The lightest bullets it will feed are 320 grain and it doesn’t like light loads at all.

Actually, I show up that way most of the time.  Although I do substitute a Henry for the Spencer.  Maximum FUN you betcha.  Also, my Ohio shooting partner does exactly the same.  Cap Guns be FUN you betcha.  Extra FUN since ours are SNUBBIES!!!

Seamus you will of course have that honor, after which I’ll bring copious shop rags for your drool.

I’m already scared of taking too long once I get both cap guns to the next match.

I wasn’t sure what I would do about that if I looked at a Spencer. I’m coming into a large chunk of change in the next two months and on the fence about a ‘66, ‘73 or Spencer.

The '60 Henry Rifle might be a bit modern fer yore taste but it does speed thangs up a mite!  I probably wouldnt get to shoot them but Lord knows I want a new pair of Uberti Walker Colts!   HMMM, shoot them, I probably couldnt even lift them anymore!!!  I do gots a pair of 3" barled Uberti .44Armie Colts and they are fun to shoot BUT I can not hit the broad side of the biggest barn in the state with them!!!!

I've done it more than once! I'm pretty happy when I break 80 seconds with such a setup. :lol:

If you're shooting a .56-50 somewhere for the first time, inquire beforehand, as some ranges really frown on those 340 grain bullets over a full load of BP.  ;)

You could buy the Spencer, but I bet the novelty wears off in a hurry if you intend to use it as a main match gun.

Been a looong time ago, but I had that happen when I showed up with my .56-56 Spencer down Durango-way.  After knocking down the first target, I switched to my (Navy Arms) M1860 Henry repeating rifle (.44-40).  IIRC my bullets were either 385gr or 411 gr.! 

Stay well, Pards!

Hey Slim!!!  Agreed.  Save the aggravation though and start with an 1860 Henry.  The '66 and '73 are cool, but the Henry is the KOOLIST!!  I have four (OOPS) now three of those.  1860 Henrys ROCK!!  Henry Big Boys DO NOT :ph34r:

Shot mine at Arkansas State and still had plenty of time to do posse duties. 
 

Had a blast figuratively and literally.

Don't have a hammered double...

But I think that at an upcoming shoot I'll have to use my Walker and Dragoon conversions, GI Surplus Spencer, and drag out the Parker.

 

What the heck.
