Looked like it was a little lonely around here today. I just spent the last 2 hrs cleaning a black powder revolver. I only shot 6 balls through it an it was as dirty as shooting 1000 rds through a modern gun. It was a ton of fun to shoot but the clean up is awful.

Gonna rub one out? Maybe even two?

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

The good and bad thing about black powder....better make it count! But then again, they weren't terribly accurate, so you still sort of have to "spray and pray!" spray is a very loose term there. You could probably load and empty a 30 mag in an AR in the time it takes to load and fire that black powder gun! Still cool with the giant cloud of smoke though!

It is rifled so it's pretty accurate. The trick is to make yourself hold your aim well after you pull the trigger because of the delay between hammer strike and lighting the powder. If you are fast you can load a revolver (6 rounds) in 5 mins. You should clean it every 24 shots or it can start to misfire.

Tell me about it, we got the registration for the Jeep a few days ago... $538. That is freaking crazy. So glad that we only have to pay $39. But it just makes it that more of a pain in the arse if we decide to store it for 4 years while we go over seas. We only get the waiver if we are stationed here as non Nevada residents. Once we leave and we keep it with Nevada tags we have to pay the full registration. I think between now and when we leave, no matter how much I hate it, I am going to switch the registration over to Texas plates. At least that would only be $60 a year while we are gone.

Can't you just unregister it until you come back? I'm pretty sure you can pull a registration for a non-driven vehicle.

I think it is more of a domino type thing... It needs to be insured because I have a loan on it and I cannot insure it unless it is registered. That plus if we decide to store it, the father in-law will drive it from time to time to keep everything fresh and get the oil changed every year.

If we store it, we will have a low mileage JKUR that is paid off, then we should be able to buy some type of M series before we leave Europe through the exchange car buying service. It sounds good on paper, but we still do not know if we are even getting to go. The wife talked to someone she knows in Germany and he said that they had over 160 people on their inbound list... all got canceled except for 42. As of right now the odds are against us

I've always been interested in BP guns. I think it'd be fun to own one. there seem to be plenty of inexpensive pistols out there.

It is a lot of fun. I've had a rifle since I was young and they can be very accurate. It is all about consistency with your powder and balls (if you choose to cast your own). The modern rifles use a .50 slug that is pretty reliable as far as ballistics go. Very fun and very smokey.

The pistols are a whole new thing for me. I got mine from cabelas for less then $100. That is also where I ordered my measure, flask, nipple wrench, balls, caps, and powder is usually cheapest at sportsmans. I'll have to bring it out some time and let some of you guys find a new hobby/money pit.
