    Stupid question of the day: Is the nipple clear? Hold the nipple up: can you see through it? If not, that may be the problem.

    If you’ve loaded it first you may still get movement of the leaf or grasses...

    It went bang today. Tear it down and clean out the flash chamber and hole as mentioned above. Sure sounded good!

    Yeah. It was clear. I blew through the barrel before I loaded it and had clear movement and hissing. I bought these riffles off a dealer who picked them up from an estate sale so things might have been gummed up as mentioned above.

    When you blew down it....was the gun real cold?
    Your breath contains......water! ;)

    Other than bouts of deep deep depression I never consider putting my mouth over the muzzle of a firearm!

    :doh:I think, when you poured the powder down the barrel it all drained out the nipple.
