    A .577 leaves a massive wound.

    ("Why would a ball even be loaded in a re-enactment?")



    Maybe he found out his Wife or GF went over to the "other" side and oops, I thought I loaded a just a blank shot and it happened to be aimed at the "right" enemy with a real lead ball .....:)


    I can see it now...Civil war games played with wooden rubber band guns now.

    Lucky it wasnt a .69 cal. That probably would have taken his arm off.

    Owning an assault rifle makes more sense than participating in this crap.

    He was shot in the shoulder with a .44 pistol round. Was on the news several weeks ago and they even had an interview with the guy after he had been shot. Still lucky though. .451 round ball in the shoulder still smarts some!

    Guys, maybe the war is not over!! The South will rise again!!
    Divide the country and give the crappy parts to the Liberals. Maybe not, they have taken over some of the nicest areas already.
