On reading the article again, I really wonder if my old 50. caliber Hawken I made from a kit in 1977 can really shoot down an airplane from a mile away. If it will do that, I wonder what the .54 caliber rifle my father-in-law has will do? It probably has some type of secret exploding projectile.
Hell my grandfather use to have .79 caliber musket!You just know that thing would create a thermonuclear blast that would spread radiation 1 mile in every direction after dropping every airplane out of the sky everywhere in the state.How we avoided spinning the earth off of its axis sending it crashing into the sun during the revolutionary war I will never figure out.
Was that a TC Hawken Kit ?!?!??! It has the older long tang that will accept a "tang peep" ?!?!?!??!?
I had one of those stolen from a truck long ago and have looked for a replacement of that "long tang" version ever since.
I have an older jager flintlock that is a favorite for now. I bought the TC Encore Muzzle Loader that uses the 209 Primers. Really good rig but I'd like a 54 caliber for Elk. Brown doesn't make a 54 caliber TC barrel for that does he ??
As to this law the NRA membership and leadership reminds me of what the good "Rev Martin Niemoeller" said.......
OH WELL guess I just have to settle for a 300 Weatherby Mag. Damn!!!
