I'd love for everyone to post pics of their Big Bore Revolvers! I'm about 3/4 thru mine and loving it! I'll post more on the book later, but this is the Gallery!

So, here is a nice Big Bore starter kit, for all the aspiring big bore-ers our there.

And finally, a collection of (VERY) entry-level big bores!
It include a .44, .44, .45, .44, and .45. And yeah, they're dirty. The Hunter was the gun that started me down the path of the big bore! I plan to start another thread asking where to head from here, down the road of the big bores.

All nice guns!

It would be a chore to dig out all my big bores to take good pics of. I'd use up a bit of bandwidth too,,,!

Short Barrel is being humble here, although he doesn't engrave, a lot of the custom work you see, he does himself. That scrimshaw is world class, I love those stocks Jim! Also, he shoots them as good as they look, deer, elk, bear, etc.

Here are most of mine, missing are two large frame Vaqueros, SS, 45 Colts, 4.62 bbls and a large frame Bisquero 45 Colt currently at Reeder's getting turned into a trail gun. Here are the rest of my big bore SA's...

Starting from top, the first 6 are 45 Colts, the two stainless Bisley BH's are Reeder 5 shot customs and all the Vaq's are large frame... 7 and 8 are 44 mags, and 9 (stainless Bisley BH) is a Reeder 510 GNR, and #10 (the blue Bisley BH 7.5" bbl) is a 475 LB.
