I haven't shot BP since I was a kid. Been wanting a revolver and found this on a local forum. I figure I can get a little more rounded in firearms. If the other 39 don't work out I can use this. At least it should be fun as heck to shoot.

Those little Remington pistols are a real pleasure to shoot. Super accurate even with moderate loads. From the looks of the picture you posted its only been lightly used. Hopefully there isn't any corrosion when you pull the nipples out and inspect the chambers. Give a post or two if you have any questions on the safe care and feeding of a BP revolver. Good shootin!

Yes, I would recommend. Make sure to clean it well though. Don't neglect it. Clean it at least every three range sessions.
