I had (gave to my son) a Cap & Ball "rifle" - the Lock showed a Crown and has the date "1862" - used to load it with a 30/06 shell casing full of black powder - melted lead and made Balls to shoot - the barrel was .52 caliber

Black Powder 'twas a bitch to clean - unscrewed the end cap and soaked the barrel in the bath tub, dried then oiled

I'm sorta hijacking the "planned purchases" part of this thread and if so, please feel free to delete my post.....

not planning on "purchasing" any of these but they're on my list of "I'd sure like to have 'em"..... all Luger pistols :

1)  a 1906 model Navy Luger (produced 1906-1914) - a 9mm (Luger) with a 6" barrel (in my opinion the most beautiful of all the Luger pistols !)

2)  a 1906 American Eagle Luger (produced 1906-1912) 9mm (just 'cause it's got the American Eagle on it..)

3)  a 1906 Swiss Commercial (produced 1909-1910) in 7.65 caliber with a 4.75" barrel (the Swiss were perhaps even more fastidious than were the Germans in their production of "fine" mechanical things)

(there were also the Artillery Lugers, with an 8" barrel and the Carbine Luger with an 11.75" barrel - no interest in those)

Well, I hadn't planned on buying any firearms in 2019, but I suddenly got the Glock bug.  So I bought one several days ago.  G19 gen 4.
I've had it out twice so far, and plan to get out again today, if this cloud cover lifts and it warms up a little more. I like it! :th_thicon_idea:

nice pistols - have 2 of 'em (Wife and myself) - had the slide milled on mine to accept an RDS, really no need to have done that (just bored, so.....) - left the Wife's stock

enjoy it
