Re: Butter or no butter
Dear Gat. This was a long time ago but I remember the bang part of it clearly. Especially the moment of incomprehension before the smoke cleared. This was a gun of unknown origin taken in trade. I will follow your theory of fire going into the neighboring nipples. As for smearing grease on top of the balls, after the first shot it was all blown out anyway. I have not shot a Cap and Ball gun since but if I do I will use wonder wads and good pinched caps. I have been looking for a Lyman .54 cal pistol. I have not heard any complaints of chain fire there.
PS. Never saw the blond again either.
a farting horse will never tire and a farting man is the one to hire.
