Hard to conceal? Check
Completely impractical? Check
Unweildy? Check

Sounds perfect

At least you'll get style points.

The Navys were his back up guns. He carried Walkers as his primary.

Interesting side note, the Colt Walker handguns were named after Walker, Texas Ranger, over 100 years before the show was first aired.

Cool gun, but I hope you're joking about the carry part.

You need to get one of the original laser sights.

I think it was a candle and a couple of focusing lenses mounted under the barrel…

Yes, I think Don's right. Its an 1860 Army model, not 1851 Navy.

It would be funny to see the reaction on the doc's face who had to treat the poor criminal bastard you would shoot with that gun.

Doc: Holy crap! I must be the first doctor in 100 years to actually have to remove a .44 caliber lead ball from a dude!!!

I'm on a Blackpowder forum where people post they actually do CCW those and other BP guns. There are some very funny stories of them and what happens when they draw down. There is also a shortage of snubnose blackpowder revolvers because of all the CCW buyers.

Perfectly legal to carry one here in PA.

Do blackpowder weapons actually count as firearms in all jurisdictions? If not, it might actually be legal to carry them in non-CCW states, and I'd take an 1860 Remmy over nothing.

Do not mock .44 lead balls. The pistols worked fine for several decades.

The only time in my life I ever picked up a gun in defense it was an 1860 Army.

My father owned a trailer park in central PHX. My brother lived in a house on the property and helped my dad manage it.

One day my dad had evicted one of the wonderful residents, and while I was visiting my brother this bastard knocked on his door and when I answered it he tried to force his way in with a gun in his hand. I was able to slam the door on him and while my brother called the police I loaded the only gun we had in the house at the time which was my 1860 Army.

I always thought it would have been funny if I needed to shoot him with that thing.

You may think it's funny, but it's the truth, except that it was more than 100 years before the show.


The most powerful handgun of its day, the 1847 Walker was the most revered of all the early “six shooters”. Designed by the legendary Texas Ranger Capt. Samuel H. Walker and his old friend Sam Colt, the 1847 Dragoon saw extensive service during the war with Mexico. The huge Colt with its tremendous stopping power continued to be the favorite of the Rangers fighting Apache and Comanche war parties.

Does anyone have a source? I also pegged his guns as Colt 1848 Dragoons, which would make sense for the period.
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 1:07:16 PM EDT
I just made a short Google search and turned up several images that depict Walker Colts. I seem to recall that he had several extra pistols in addition to the Walkers, but it's been too long since I watched the movie to recall exactly what they were.

He starts off with two pistols in holsters that look like Walkers/Dragoons, and a smaller one in a shoulder holster of a make that I can't place. After his little buddy dies, he takes his pistol, another Walker/Dragoon, and carries it Mexican style.
