Bloke down the road from me is one of the main suppliers of flint for those things. Every so often, a lorry drops a load of "skulls" (flint rocks) off in his yard and he chips them into shape ready for the re-enactment crowd.
Been inclined to wander... off the beaten track.
That's where there's thunder... and the wind shouts back.

Actually that is a true gun, since it's a smooth bore.

**** YOU.

I'm through playing nice. Why? Because you have ****ed me, in my ass, without my consent.

You BAN me for calling Railroader Kilbey, and I DID NOT DO THAT AFTER I WAS WARNED. So you banned me for a bullshit reason, to appease railroader's constant 'report abuse' tactics.

Then I wait it out, thinking that even if I'm being wronged, I'll be civil, and things will work themselves out. Then, I GET BANNED FOR NO REASON WHATSOEVER.

So piss off. You can't stop me, you know it. Have fun!

- Rob

It was quite successful, I might add.

To the tune of a $30,000 hospital stay and three months of rehab.

But hey, I can joke about it now.

Up where I am during the dear hunting season they set aside dates where only hunters can use bows and other times for hunters with flintlock rifles.

Well an old friend of mine from high school was into the flintlock thing I guess. I ran into him coming out a store some years back and I was shocked. He had a pirate patch on and the right side of his face looked like he had a bad case of blackheads. Apparently the gun blew up and a blast of powder blasted back into his face peppering it with gunpowder making jelly of his right eye and tattooing his face with black powder deep into his skin.

Mark, that looks like an original, antique flintlock. If it is, aren't you risking damaging it by actually firing it? If not, that's one funky (as in really dirty) looking repro!

And since you brought it up, how did you manage to shoot yourself, and with what? PLEASE tell me it wasn't like that DEA guy who was "demonstrating" his Glock to a classroom of 4th graders-and shot himself in the leg with the arguably safest to handle handgun currently made!

Yeah, it's a Harper's Ferry Navy .54 cal flintlock. Circa war of 1812. I got it from a yard sale when I was 14 and it already had work done on it to keep it a good shooter by a competent blacksmith. It's fun to shoot and built like a tank. I hadn't shot it in 20 years when I did it for the video and I figured the flint was pretty much worn out, but it demonstrated the difficulties they had with their weapons back then.

Anyways I got shot by a damaged Colt Single Action Army .45 that the drop safety sear was broken and I didn't realize it. The hammer caught my beltloop and set it off as I was putting it in the holster.
The bullet entered behind my knee, passing inbetween my tibia and fibula then exited my ankle.

I'm not much for shooting rifles, but some of them I sure like looking at. That's a very pretty rifle.

I remember the pictures. Didn't you get like a million stitches (at least a few hundred), and they opened your leg up like a filleted fish to fix you back up?

One tragic incident for sure. But one lunatic doesn't change the fact that millions of people enjoy guns for sport and use them for self defense, including me, and I will continue to add to my collection for as long as I can afford to.

I feel like I am about to cause a derailment of your thread Mark. Sorry about that. Nice flintlock by the way, and I am going to start another thread for pics. Hope to see that 1865 Colt there.

Oh ya ONE incident....right.

Hey if you NEED a gun for self defense than go nuts, I thought the terrorists were the dangerous ones though but I guess your fellow gun loving Americans are the ones to worry about.

Yes, the VA Tech incident was one incident, and it was tragic, which is what I said. I never said there weren't others, I just replied to the one you brought up. I may never ever need a gun for self defense, but that is why I have them, because I don't know. Terrorists are dangerous. Other Americans who would do me or my family harm are likely either criminals or psychotic and they are also dangerous. Am I to assume that wherever you are there are no criminals and no people who would ever harm you?

My uncle has one of those, plus several Civil War and WWII rifles. He only shoots it 3 or 4 times a year because they're heavy maintenance. Require lots of cleaning after you shoot them.

They're a hoot. Tons of smoke.
