I owned one and have worked on two more. Mine i tried to sell and finely gave up and gave it to a kid i took under my wing. He got mad at it when it snapped 15 times straight on a chicken killin dog so he took the scope off and killed the dog by using the rifle as a club. I got it to shoot halfway reliably again then got mad myself at havin to constantly work on it and tore it apart and its now in a bin at my masters shop so it can be used as parts.

Well it was a sunny Saturday afternoon. My two best friends Chuck Norris, John Wayne & I were drinking are usual Moxie cocktails.
A red tree rat ran out onto a branch on a witch tree. My personal friend Chuck Norris took out his Marlin 60 & fired a shot. I & John were quite impressed that Chuck shot that squirrel dead in the mid section. It was after all @ 675 yards.
A few hours later & a couple Moxies, another dreaded tree rat appeared on the branch of a witches tree. My good friend John pulled out his old faithful Henry .22 rifle & bang right between the eyes. Needless to say Chuck & I were quit impressed.
Not 20 minutes later another tree rat appeared on the same branch of the same tree. It was my turn to take aim. I took out my muzzle loaded smooth bore .22 musket with what some may say resembled iron sights. I carefully took aim, before I gently squeezed of my round. Bang, and the squirrel ran back inside the tree. My two good friends laughed & laughed at me. I then said, If I Remember correctly. Squirrel may run but he not f**k anymore.

Well I guess I'll have to be the one to call BS. There is no way that John Wayne and Chuck Norris were hanging out in the same vicinity. That level of cumulative bad assedness would end the universe and you all know it.
