    Pop can mortar help.

    I have not shot it yet. On the internet there is a lot of variation in powder charge used. Perhaps because of variations in the size of the sub chamber. Thanks for the info IronHand

    Kalamazoo Living History Exposition

    I've been going to that show for 30+ years. It's always good. This year I had some cash and some trade so I came home with a new bag and horn, a 1855 pistol carbine and a pop can mortar. Hope the wife doesn't find out how much I spent. 😳 IronHand

    Pistol Carbine

    Went to the K-Zoo show looking for a large bore handgun. Came home with this. Made in 1980 by A. Zole, 58cal, based on the U.S model 1855 pistol carbine. Ironhand

    Went to the K-zoo show today and came home with a mortar. Hand made by a machinist. Pictures will follow. Now I need to learn the care and feeding of the beast. Anyone out there who can enlighten me? Thanks IronHand

    Tell me about this J. Brown Smoothbore .62

    +1 for an in the white gun. I've had a Jackie Brown trade gun for years. The finish on the barrel is nothing like mine. Same for the stock. Can't tell you what it's worth but once you refinish it you'll be glad you bought it. IronHand

    Lot of handguns

    I ran gun shows for 36 years. Most of the dealers don't want to carry traditional BP guns because they are hard to sell. Not a lot of interest. The exception might be the revolvers. Most dealers with traditional BP guns are willing to bargain so they can get them of their inventory. One factor...

    Powder horn funnel

    I tried those. They worked but were too small for my hands. Catheter tip syringe, 30 or 50 cc, works well. Larger volume and easier to hold. You may have to reshape the tip. Any large pharmacy should have them. You could also go to the store and get a turkey baster. Pull off the rubber ball...
