    Caps For Sale?

    I've found quite a few entities selling caps online - but every one of them require store pickup. I'm guessing that they don't want to get into hazmat shipping.

    Cold Steel hawk modification project.

    Bag #7 in the bag

    Very nice ! FWIW, I tried to do fringe, but failed miserably, so I cut it off and edged the flap on this bag with rawhide lacing.

    Picked up an underhammer

    I really liked the .36 H&A underhammer rifle I had, and even kept the forend in storage after I removed it from the gun to more closely resemble an 1800's target rifle (although I used it on Squills). I only sold it because I tripped over a .36 T/C Seneca that I liked more...…..
