Muff. An item women would wear around their waste. It is a tubular form and you would out your hands in each side to keep them warm.For once, I'm not even trying to be funny. Can you elaborate?
Thanks! I genuinely was thinking of a purse, but I've never heard a purse called a "muff," so that didn't make sense. I guess this is a dated term in a lot of ways. @howlnmad, I believe I would have called what you have a "hand warmer."Muff. An item women would wear around their waste. It is a tubular form and you would out your hands in each side to keep them warm.
I have one in camo that I use for hunting.
Nevermind, Moody gave a better description.
Not only dated but British, they call a hood of a car a bonnet and the trunk a boot.
The Queen Anne refers to the action type, the lock plate, trigger plate and breech plug are a single piece. Some are screw barrels and others load from the muzzle. On some the cock and frizzen are centered and some are side lock. Percussion guns we generally call box locks instead of Queen Annes.They have many names. I usually heard them referred to as Queen Anne screw guns. Queen Anne I know nothing about but the barrels screw off to load them.
Back when I was a rude and crass teenager, "muff" had a completely different meaning, if you know what I mean, Vern.Well, it depends on who you ask in 2021. Some may claim to definitely know what it is, even if they're not on the same page with you!
I know what you mean by the opening sentence. I was thinking the same but didn't know how to say it.Back when I was a rude and crass teenager, "muff" had a completely different meaning, if you know what I mean, Vern.
I don't think the case is original to the pair of pistols, no provision for the barrel key/turn screw in the case. A turn off pistol would need a barrel key to turn the barrel and sometimes the turn screw ( an archaic word for screwdriver, not a prison guard) for the top jaw would be on the other end of the barrel key. The other accoutrements needed and usually provided space for in a cased set would be a powder flask and a space for the round balls and perhaps a mould. Turn barrels didn't use patches, the powder and ball are loaded into the breech and the ball is larger than bore diameter like a cap n ball revolver. The barrel will have a forcing cone in it.
