    Well that could be more fact than fiction, have you ever had salt in your eyes? Makes fighting real difficult.:eek: Smarty pants
  5. Yup, that I have Cat, and you're right, it hurts! My granddad used to tell stories of when he was a kid stealing watermelons out of some farmer's field . . . and getting hit in the butt with a rock salt charge from a the farmer's shotgun. :D

    My grandfather had an interresting thing for stray dogs that hung arround the farm. He had a stick with a rag wrapped arround the end of it and it was soaked in a pail of Turpentine? i think.... I seen it happen one time...he grabed the dogs tail and gave that dog a good poke and wipe with that stick and that dog was dragging his behind over the gravel road like there was no tomorrow....
    Stray dog problem solved. :rolleyes:

    Nice rifles GaBob !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nice!

    I just happen to have a few of the older ones kicking around myself.

    Here's a couple:
    .45 Government Springfield model 1884 carbine manufactured in the last quarter of 1889 and went to the 10th cavalry unit. With an original cleaning kit in the stock.

    .30 ARMY Winchester 1895 carbine manufactured in 1914. This one obviously didn't make the run up San Juan Hill but others before it did. ;)

    And yes, the cartridge carrier is on the 1895 'cause I use it in the woods:)

    I have never fired the 1816 but it is in good enough condition to be fired.
    All the others I have fired.
    The cut down Krag carbine got a cracked stock years ago when my horse got into a yellow jacket nest and I was thrown. My uncle did such a neat repair that it is almost invisible.
    That brings on a story for another post

    The long Krag was given to me several years ago by a distant cousin who was 100 years old. Her son was my shooting buddy until his death. She called and asked me to come to her house. Gave me the Krag and as we were talking she said I could also have the gun propped in the corner.
    It is a Browning 16 Ga that belonged to her father who died in 1940. The chamber was originally 2 5/8 but apparently had been sent back to factory as the original markings are stamped out and 2 3/4 " stamped on it. This shotgun is in better than 90% condition.
