    Just as long as you don't choose ends of your property and solve arguments with them, you should be fine.

    Snakeyes pistol

    I'll have to mike the balls I use in mine (I think they are .350), but I've used either a greased felt wad or thin patch w/ success. W/ a wad, I use a pinch of tow over the ball to keep it down tight on the powder.

    Surprise, surprise. That should be an embarassment and good negotiation point. "Everyone" knows how BP will rust a bore when left in too long. Probably wasn't cleaned after the last use because they didn't clear that load; another negotiation point. Unsafe! "It may not even be safe to shoot...

    gun show find - percussion long gun

    The wrist shape and checkering makes the stock looks like a British sporting rifle to me. I don't think that folding ramrod/wiper would be practical for a rifle, but for a smooth bore, it's inspired- and eliminates the need for a forearm or thimbles. How's the balance?

    The Good, the Bad and the Visible

    That's a dramatic enough improvement for me to find some Evaporust. I thought I was ridiculously anal about bore cleaning; even have a set of concave drop mirrors for a better look down the bores. My primary rifle looked mirror-bright - until I ran a scope down (& mine doesn't show laterally as...

    FOR SALE .445 Minie Mold, Lee Single Cavity

    From what I've read, it should. I wasn't using this mold or shooting these Minies, though I used to have a .45 (& would be keeping this if i still had it. I'm selling this for a friend. I believe that he intended to but it is unused. From what I've read, Minies work well in RB twist rifling. I...

    Colonial knife question

    I find it interesting that the Scot on the left of the front line is wearing trews, which I associate w/ lowlanders, but also a dirk on his chest? What's the rest of the story on the painting? What's the fallicy in my understanding? Thanks.

    Colonial knife question

    I've read that the proscription was lifted for those joining the Royal Regiments, and that the exemption extended to their immediate family (probably in the English, rather than the Scottish, sense). I don't recall if it extended to weapons for the family, but, apparently, it was part of the...

    I've followed your posts, liking what I see a lot, but unable to afford anything right now. I'll just keep drooling on my keyboard. Stay safe.
