I haven't picked up any new BP toys lately either. Maybe my nephew will find me something at the next gunshow; I have authorized him to trade my .22 magnum rifle and ammo for something cool.

It's not that, Orange, I have many new ones. These especially include the evaluation prototype for a possible new later-period matchlock pistol production piece as well as custom-made arms such as a honkin' big Baltic lock musket, an Italian snaphaunce, an Italian miquelet, a copy of the Morko Gun... Oh, and with edged weapons to match. Would folks here like to see an F&I period flintlock hand mortar with Grenadier's matchcase and halberd next to their crew-served coehorn mortar and period grenadoes? Of course they would, but they're not gonna (on this site).

I got sick of cliqueish Moderators being unfair here and decided not to put any more effort into almost single-handedly keeping the dying blackpowder forum on life support by creating and maintaining what were by far the most popular threads it has seen in a long, long, time in return for insulting treatment.

It's interesting to see how many people come here when I've posted understandably hoping for a next installment (arguably by anyone) only to be, undoubtedly, disappointed.

I don't have it yet but will be getting a Sharp's paper cutter pretty soon.

BTW orangello, you're right about Gander Mtn. in Hattiesburg.

Default Two in the Hand is Worth...

...well that's not important.

I showed this brace of custom reproduced Italian snaphaunces in another thread about CCW so, despite being beaten up by a moderator for "mentioning a troll who was outside the thread" but who had actually posted in it just a couple earlier...

The stock of one is from an original antique French pistol's which the other is copied from. Small, only 9-1/2" with 4-3/4" .54 Colrain barrels, the furniture is sterling silver (about 3-1/2 ounces) and the ramrods are Rosewood. The lock is made up of 17 individual parts with an automatic open sliding pan cover. All parts are hardened and polished 4440 steel except the springs and frizzen which are 6150.

I also have a complete spare lock...
