    WANTED Sword Hanger.

    Do you have any contact info? even though I'm not left-handed he might be able to make me one. This sword will be worn mostly as a gentleman's dress sidearm.

    The one you have shown is for a Rapier which has a blade length of 40 inches plus. The 1767 french sword is an Epee and only has a 32-inch blade so my though is that one would be larger than needed.

    I could make one myself but I've been unable to even find a decent photo or painting that shows one complete. If I can't find some sort of documentation I'll just male one that works they really aren't that complicated.

    I looked there at about 4 or 5 pages but they are mostly for swords larger than the 1767.

    I am in need of a hanger for a 1767 french short sword. Could use a source or a pattern for one I could make myself. Thanks

    Cannon charge

    Maybe a simple paper charge or a silk bag might work better.

    Well I pulled the trigger

    Naval cannons generally had wooden or iron wheels and the recoil was slowed with a block and tackle system and then returned to the gun port with the same system.

    Well I pulled the trigger

    If I were to build one I'd have to shoot real projectiles on my property. I have about 400 yds. of open ground but don't have a clue where you'd get the iron balls that big.

    Well I pulled the trigger

    Did you explain to her that it means fire as the cannon comes to bear (crosses its bore) on the opposing ship? I have no ill will towards female bears.;)

    Leather knee breeches

    I totally agree with the french fly and it's by far easier to do.

    Well I pulled the trigger

    I looked at the website for the offering of tubes and I'd probably go with the U.S carronade in full or 3/4 size and obvious from my avatar on a naval carriage harder to move around for sure but just image myself saying"fire as she bears" when I would light it off.. :thumb:

    Well I pulled the trigger

    I'm going to have to break down and buy a cannon one of these days I'd love to have one. What carriage do you intent to mount it on?

    What's in your powder horn

    Goex 3f in my horn, Goex 2f in my flask for my shotguns and Swiss in the flask for my handguns.

    thoughts from you guys?

    The squirrels here are well past having litters at this time of year, at here where I'm at. Right now they're feeding heavily on pecans and hickories.
