    I just received a batch of pics from a shooting friend, showing a nasty barrel explosion with a Savage muzzleloader. If someone would post the pics, I will forward, so all can see. Butch

    There was a blurb going around a while back about that and the upshot was that the shooter was disgruntled with someone and was pushing the limits to make his point (aginst the manufacturer?). Anyway, it turned out to be a documented case of stupidity, not the gun's fault.

    I attempted to upload as directed. Message said it could not upload a JPG file. I'll keep trying.

    Then there is something else wrong because .jpg is the file format that the FTP is designed to handle.
