Yea I got one, 14" stainless w/scope on a stainless frame with black composite handle. I use it for deer and whatever else gets within range, which is supposed to be 150 yards, or so I'm told. I've yet to have the need to aim that far.

I have two barrels for mine...bought it originally the first year TC came out with their 'Hunter Package'...Consisted of a .45-70 10 inch barrel with a 2 inch muzzle brake that they call a 12 inch aint...and it still kicks like a moose on steroids...specially with my 350 Hornady Round Nose hand-loads...bout ten is all you want to do in an afternoon...My other barrel is a Wildcat....35 Herret...way more fun to have to fire-form the brass from cut down and knecked up .30-30 brass...I load 180 grain SSP Hornady's in that and can do 2 inch circles all day at 200 yards...

I got a fair-chase bear here in VT in 1991 with the .45-70...I would not hesitate to shoot a moose with my loads...or a Sherman Tank for that matter...

Always liked single shot pistols. The TC is on the list, but down a ways due to prioritization of needs. I do have two .22 single shot pistols. A very old Stevens and a new Rexxio. The Rexxio is a pretty fair shooter for the $79 I paid brand new. I have an old single shot remington pistol in an odd ball caliber, 11mm Remington-Spanish. Kicks worse than a mule. Five or six shots and your wrist feels broke.

11 MM Mauser or 43 Spanish, rollin block Remington pistol. A new one on Me, never knew They ever chambered it for that load, but they were made up in a lot of strange and excitin sizes.
You might try cuttin tha load down a bunch,not sure if there is any other mold besides tha 385 grain one. I had a carbine and three rifles,tha rifles were fun ta shoot but tha carbine with a full load bit pretty bad so can see where a full load in tha pistole would fetch Your attention.

Had tha opertunity ta shoot a T/C in 35 Rem once,not a fun gun.
Feller in a club I belonged to built a scaled up P model Colt chambered for 45/70, A mite on tha weighty side.

I was never real sure about the exact name of the cartridge. some call it 43 Spanish, some 11mm spanish. I also have a rifle in 43 Spanish reformado. I've read that the standard 43 Spanish is the same as the .433 Peabody I even swapped for a four cavity Lyman mould for the bullets. Got four of five rifles in 43 Spanish even a 43 Egyptian. I also have a 11mm Mauser rifle, single shot bolt action. Got a couple of 50-70 rifles, a .577 Snider rifle and a .58 U.S. Musket Remington Rolling Block. I guess I have an affinity for old military single shot rifles.
The pistol is a full size rolling block action but has the tang and trigger guard extension curved down into a pistol grip. must have been home made.

They are a nice little lady's gun and safe too, being a single shot. I knew and old lady who carried one in a cross draw holster in 45/70. She could shoot it too. She was a bounty hunter that was feared by all. I've heard a lot of those old hard case bail jumpers went and turned them selves in when they heard she was coming for them. She runs a stocker operation now over around Sedan and has kind of retired from boundy hunting.

Yup, I've owned a couple over the years. I don't know where you'd find a fan for one, though. Mine did'nt have fans on 'em.

I heared thet. Fan ain't wot I meant tho. If'n they needed that kind o fan they'd jest about be too hot fer me. But I like them fans that you can put on the ceilins, so long as you don't wear no top hat, an I dont.
