That's pretty much what I tried to tell him, aside from the legal issues. Regarding being out in the sun too long, this is the Ozarks, and ...

Dumb Question RE Cap & Ball Revolver

I recently sold an old repro 1851 to a neighbor, and he asked me yesterday if he could load it with bird shot for dove hunting. Other than the fact that the shot would probably foul up the rifling,...

The Security Six is a sweet little handgun, but my opinion is probably influenced by a long association with my revolver -- we tend to like what is comfortable and familiar. The Redhawk isn't bad,...

I've carried a Security Six for well over 20 years. Nice little .357, and my favorite ever handgun. And, unlike autos, it will never jam when you need it most. It's small enough for a scrawny old...

I'd trust a brass barrel before I'd trust a chunk of pipe. The pipe is probably from China, and consists of melted Fords, soup cans and other miscellaneous unassayed material.

I think the...

Just to clarify ... when I saw this thread my first thought was that I didn't want to see someone hurt himself.

I'm reminded of a situation that occured when I lived in southwest Idaho. Two...

That advertisement is immediately confusing for this old fart, mainly because anodizing involves oxidizing. So does browning. So does bluing.

You fellows are gonna think I'm nuts, but for over 30 years I've used sawdust as a dessicant. Stick a cake pan filled with sawdust in the oven at 300 F for half an hour, and then put it in a paper...

Guess we've all done dumb things as kids. It's amazing any of us survived before the days of seatbelts, carseats, kneepads and bike helmets, eh?

About homebuilt firearms, I think anyone with...

You said what I meant to say, but you said it better.

This is essentially one of those "Yes, it can be done, but don't try this at home, kids" situations. I mean, there have been times in...

ALSGUN, that sounds like one of the slamfire guns made for the Filipino resistance during the Second World War. My uneducated guess is that the steel isn't high quality. Those weapons were made to...

Whether 40 or 80, make certain it's not Chinese pipe. Yes, I guess I'd feel safe enough dropping maybe 12 grains down a 3/4" pipe and lighting it off, but I wouldn't consider it a practical firearm,...

Schedule 40 sounds like a nice way to make a pipe bomb, not a firearm. Among other things in life, I've been a welder/fabricator and a blacksmith, and I've made a few barrels for my own use. Use...

Oh, heck, I was replying to the OP. As I now read the rest of the replies, I see most of my ultra-wise advice was already offered by others. Okay, I'm an old guy. Get used to this kind of thing,...

I've had mixed luck with leaving BP revolvers loaded for lengthy periods of time -- mostly my own fault when the luck went south. Humidity is the main factor. If you are very, very careful, and go...
