    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 ...

  • Posted in thread: Dumb Question RE Cap & Ball Revolver on 09-08-2010 at 09:34 PM
    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, I ...

    As mentioned before I carry (on self and in house) a .357 as my primary defense weapon.This
    weekend I had the pleasure of shooting a Security Six once again. I have loved this handgun for
    several year...

    I'm no master marksman, but I'm also not a big fan of the "spray until you're empty" theory. A
    good friend of mine back in Alaska emptied his 12 gauge into a yearling bear that mock charged
    him at the...

    I guess a massive enough piece of metal with a hole bored in it would work reasonably well as a
    smooth bore or shotgun.Anyone know where the dimensions of the inner bore of the barrel of a
    muzzle-load...

    Not bad at all, even for eyes half that age. I'd sure prefer not to be on the receiving end.

    It seems to be most of the time 9mm vs 40 vs 45...what happened with good old 357
    Magnum..Wondering who here still relies on it as their primary carry/house gun...somehow I'm
    growing a soft spot for m...

    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
    pressure rat...

    Welcome to the FTF community. I think you'll fit right in. :cool:Thanks. I'll sure try to fit
    in (although I'd sure like to discourage the idea of building shotguns from gas pipe). You
    folks make a fe...

    Well sir at least you covered all the bases.Don't call me "sir," please, sir. It makes an old
    guy feel old. Maybe after another 20 years ...
