    Definitely cool by any stretch, the Colt Thunderer is something I would love to possess. Saw one in Reno last summer price right, but condition issues spooked me. What good is a gun you can't shoot, right?

    Billy the Kid was known to have favored the Thunderer.

    I have seen factory ammo available at outfits that service the cowboy action folks.

    You wouldn't happen to have a few pix, would you?

    That gun uses the .41 Long Colt, which is center fire and uses a heel based bullet like a .22 Long Rifle. You should be able to find ammo from one of the companies that deals with obsolete ammo, but it's gonna be spendy.
