love the gun and fun to shoot but kind of rough on the shoulder after sending several rounds down range.
One time my diminutive wife wanted to shoot my 1895 - so I loaded up some 60 grain blackpowder rounds with 350 grain bullets.

She enjoyed shooting it, and later on I spent a pleasant hour taking the gun apart to clean it.

Now days I would use TrailBoss to do the same thing.

When you are dead, you won't even know that you are dead... It's a pain only felt by others.

- Same thing when you are stupid.
