Talking My first firearm!

Just brought this baby home! Unfortunately I'm not going to have time to go to the range till next week...
The holster I ordered for it was also waiting for me at my door when I got back too.
Sorry my pics are a tad dark and blurry in some, combination of only having a small desk lamp as the light source and a cheap kodak camera.

Is it an 1861 Navy? That's an awesome first gun and I can't wait to hear a range report!

It's the Uberti .45colt conversion of the 1858 New Army, 8" barrel, walnut grips, new. Hammer is a little stiff but the trigger is nice and smooth. Uh, weighs in at just under 3lbs. unloaded and other than that, can't think of anything else to comment on till I get a chance to shoot it.
Oh, and the holster is one of those triple-K Brand ones from Cabela's.
