The Webley #5 Frontier is a real saloon brawler’s gun: a compact, powerful belt pistol dating from about 1878.
I am a fan of Antique Firearms, cartidge types like the Webley .455/.476 and also cap and ball like the Walker. The Howdah .50 is a mean beast all its own.
The first revolvers I ever owned were .44 Walkers and I loved them. My uncle wanted me to start with the basics. He taught me two-handed shooting with those revolvers.
Due to my current legal restrictions and the fact that I do not intend to violate any firearm laws at the present time; I am educating myself. Truth be told, it is new knowledge and I am very impressed with what I am finding.
I have no intention with turning this website into an Antique spot, but I think it is germain to point out that the glock armed bad guy is equally matched with the Walker armed good guy who is smart. Make no quick judgements about those who may end up in your tribe with older "inferior" gear. And the Patriot armed with an antique C96 Mauser...
