Weapons

A cavalryman was a versatile warrior; his tools allowed him to fight mounted or dismounted, with long arms, revolvers, and of course, the saber.

The recommended order that you obtain your weapons is as follows:
 
1st- Obtain a black powder revolver (i.e. a Colt .36 or .44, or a Remington 44), a brace would be better if possible.
 
2nd- After at least one revolver, get a saber.
 
3rd- A long arm
 
After obtaining all three types of weapons you may want to add more revolvers.
