    The problem is toleration. It has been weaponized

    Do you have stuck nipple syndrome?

    I've had more experience with cheap wrench's that fail than stuck nipples these last 4 + decades. The light weight ones for revolvers seem the worst and "smear" the nipple slot without much effort (often damaging the nipple itself). When I had a shop I have made my own from oil quenched tool...

    Big fun with a wee rifle

    Sounds good and a pound of powder and shot will last a long time. Always wanted a .32 but can barely handle .40 balls due to old age hand issues. Have fun with them for me!!

    Interesting Mountain Man site

    I am the last of the 100% Sicilians in my family. The name ends with me. 100% Sicilian means I'm 100% mutt from every nation and sub continent that ever visited, conquered, sailed past or otherwise spent time on the island since time began. Against my advice that there are things you...

    Interesting Mountain Man site

    Sicily was so wonderful back then. I like the stories about knocking all the stone fences down to less than a meter so bad guys couldn't hide behind them and jump out with sawed off rifles and shotguns. Was at the shot show and one of Pedsersoli's showed me one of their very short barreled ML...

    Interesting Mountain Man site

    My grandparents emigrated in 1910 as Sicily was a mess and had been that way from before 1308 when family records began. Also surprised that no records of Italian mountain men exist when French ones seem plentiful.

    My Powder Horn is illegal in California

    Funny how CA controls the rest of the US yet can't control itself. If "horn inspector" comes to inspect your horn or flask suggest a match and stand back.

    I won't be selling my H&A any time soon.......

    Just a side note to help prevent nasty accidents like this. In my shop each bench has a strip of wood attached with a series of 3/8" peg holes spaced about 2-3" apart. Wood pins about 2" long were those sold in bulk for joining planks and stuff were used safely to hold guns upright...

    12L14 barrel comes apart

    Glad to see someone finally added "swamping" to list. It was my first thought.

    Midway - maybe wait a few months to order from them. . .while they work the kinks out.

    debit cards cut out much of the banks responsibility and may be a big plus for scammers

    My Powder Horn is illegal in California

    I doubt even one case of overweight powder horns has ever been enforced or ever will. Such is the case for most "laws" there.

    Question on a Pedersoli Mortimer

    Rifle/shotgun combos have been a dud for me. First one was a .45 TC Hawken with a 20G Sharon drop in. Very hard to shoot as a shotgun. Next one was a rare Bondini (?) Gallyon 12 g shotgun prototype with a .50 rifle drop in barrel. Better fit but still hard for me as a rifle. I gave a honest...

    FOR SALE gooddy51 possible scammer

    I like the idea of time dated VIDEO of the item showing details and such. This may be the way to go in the future.

    TC drop GM barrel have people gone crazy?

    Nah. Don't you think the "sliding scale of inflation" would eat any profit plus finding folks to work might be a bit difficult.
