    Philadelphia derringer

    What's the quality of Dikar reproductions like? I'm buying one. I probably won't shoot it often. But I will shoot it occasionally and keep it for "show and tell." Thanks.

    Philadelphia derringer

    Question-would any of the non-firing, but otherwise functioning replicas provide parts, like perhaps the lock and stock for use in building a firing replica? Just wondering.

    Philadelphia derringer

    I have never had much interest in BP handguns, besides revolvers. However, I would like to own a Philadelphia derringer (like the one Booth used to kill Lincoln). I would buy a nice used one or build one, either from a kit of from pieces. Any comments and/or advice will be appreciated. Thanks.

    coffee grinder in stock

    When I posted the question I was thinking, my wife collects coffee grinders so if I put one in the stock of the CVA kit I'm building she would be surprised. I'm pretty sure she has no idea such guns were ever made. She might want it hanging over the fireplace instead of my Kentucky long rifle.

    coffee grinder in stock

    Which rifles during the Civil War had coffee grinders in the stock? Did they use coffee grinders instead of patch boxes? Anybody ever find or make a coffee grinder that could be inlet into the stock of a rifle stock?

    snake load for my Remington

    We live in a wooded area, and I love it, however that means we are apt to see snakes, including copperheads in the yard occasionally. I would like to load my 1858 Remington with a good snake load to carry this summer. I don't want to use anything that will damage the gun. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    GAME WARDENS

    I never have any interaction with game wardens because I have not hunted or fished for several years. However a cousin of mine and his son-in-law had a unfortunate experience a few years ago here. They were hunting turkey on land belonging to my cousin. My cousin, in his seventies at the time...

    what's acceptable space over ball in revolver

    When I load my Remington with 25g of FFF powder, a felt wad and a ball, I have about 1/4" space left. I've shot it that way and it seems fine but it makes we wonder... what would be the maximum space before one should use some filler, or a second wad?

    I finally shot my "new" Remington revolver today

    The "improvements" that I thought about had to do with preventing fouling and jamming after several shots being fired. Since I only fired a few this first time out, that was not a concern. But when I disassembled the pistol, I found it not to be nearly as "dirty" as I expected. Now that it is...

    I finally shot my "new" Remington revolver today

    I've had the flu for the past few days but felt well enough today to try out the Remington for the first time. I'm pleased. I will need to get some #10 caps instead of the #11s I had on hand. Shooting offhand, with two hand hold, I can shoot good small groups all day long, even shaky, like I was...
