That's not complicated at all. ;)

My wife can load a full-sized musket because she used to be a historian at a Civil War Fort. I'll have her do it. :P

I believe that FFFG is the proper propellant for 36 cal.

Good ol' fashioned Black Powder (very dirty and stinky), or any of the substitutes like Pyrodex, GOEX, Hodgson 777, and Alliant is making one now too (can't think of the name) should all fit the bill.

NOTE: Stay away from Blackhorn 209 though (by far the cleanest burining). It has a much higher flashpoint than the others listed and I don't think your ignition source on your pistol is sufficient to get it lit.

Good shooting!

So why did the cop even approach the guy? A lot of officers don't know the law when it comes to open carry, guessing he saw the gun, arrested him and then was told it was legal and didn't want to admit he made a mistake.

Yep, that is why he was let go with no charges filed. I would like to hear the officers explain why he had a reasonable articulate suspicion that a crime was being committed in order to stop / detain and terry search this individual. Is that what this officer does to every pedestrian he encounters (I doubt it)? If not why did he single this person out unless he saw the gun (which makes the concealed carry point moot).

I think what triggered the arrest was that he was brokering meetings with an arms dealer who was going to get the guns from an Islamic terrorist group in the Philippines.

This is a guy who has received death threats for his gun control policies.

He was also opposed to Grand Theft Auto and similar video games. Maybe he got hooked on the games and they made him do it?

My father is going to sell his circa 1945 Crossman pellet gun.
What's the market value on something like that?

For $2.95, you can look up the market value of a single gun at http://bluebookofgunvalues.com/. The Blue Book of Gun Values is to guns what the Kelley Blue Book is to cars. They have prices for air guns and blackpowder guns too. I just checked, and prices for Crosman guns are available.

Heads up to hunters in PA. Two bills are pending in the Pennsylvania assembly that would permit the use of semi-auto rifles for hunting certain specific game. HB 2230 says that a semi-auto of ".223 caliber or less" and a "cartridge capacity of not more than six" can be used to hunt coyote, fox, or woodchuck. SB 1402 says that a semi-auto rifle can be used to take coyotes and woodchucks except during turkey, deer, and bear seasons. Although HB 2230 permits the hunting of foxes as well, I think SB 1402 makes more sense. For one thing, we all know that the .223 Remington and most other centerfire .22s actually use bullets that are .224" in diameter, and I can just imagine PETA filing a lawsuit arguing that the bullets themselves must be .223" or less in order to be legal. The Senate bill doesn't have any magazine limits, either.

If you support either of these, you might want to drop your state legislators a line and ask them to support these bills. PA is in a tiny, tiny minority of states that don't permit semi-autos for hunting, and this would at least partially catch us up.

Her form isn't that great, she should have her body splayed out more directly to absorb that recoil more efficiently.

Also, her form is great.

Thanks for the heads up. Didn't realize this was happening. I would love to be able to use my AR for something productive, other than plinking and preparing for the zombie apocalypse.

When I was buying either my MP40 or my Mini14 .223 a guy from Texas was in the store bragging about Texas. He was going on and on and mentioned how in Texas you can use semis to hunt and how stupid it was that in PA you couldn't use semis.

I told him "Well, in PA, we only need one shot."
He completely ignored me and kept going on about Texas.

Good post by Shyster ('Heads up to hunters in PA.') indeed. In these days of the Interwebz we have a tendency to wait for information to come to us and it often arrives too late.
I agree that the use of semi's (in .223 or smaller) on predators outside of turkey, deer and bear seasons (no, not the ones from Nashville) makes sense.

Got to fire my dads ruger .357 yesterday with 38 special rounds in it. Really REALLY comfortable to shoot, and scary accurate. Never want to touch my .380 again.

Load some .38 in the first half then .357 in the 2nd half of the cylinder. It's amazing at the difference in power.
