    Those ole "Yeager" style guns are fun. I like taking mine out to the club and shoot a few targets every once-in-awhile. It's quite the conversation starter.

    It's a blast! I waited 28 months for it to be built by Al Edge. It's 10 gauge, with premium grade curly maple, Brown Bess furniture and a Chambers Roundface English lock. I use it in my Royal Navy impression at RevWar events.

    Do they allow this a Quantico? Hs it been proof tested to 19,140? And do "Dudes abide"?

    MIA,

    I don't think the guys in the squad would appreciate waiting for me to load! :)

    The Dude ALWAYS abides! :)

    You DO know who The Dude is, don't you? :)

    CFP. Is that what they refer to as a "tula choke"?

    It would be a tough followup shot, but that is one very nice work of art. It looks like it was well worth the wait. I hope you enjoy it!

    CFP,

    They don't take very long to reload if'n you are set up proper. I made a couple of dippers out of spent cartridge cases. I went through some brass to find one that has the proper volume. I brazed on a bit of sturdy wire to act as a handle. Speeds the process up quite a bit.

    A choke tube might add a bit of weight at the muzzle. (snicker)

    You guys are a hoot!

    OK, people have asked me, "What the heck is this Dude stuff all about?" Well, The Dude is Jeffrey Lebowski, the main character in the movie, "The Big Lebowski."

    My wife hates it, but I think it's one of the funniest movies ever made. "The Dude abides" is a quote from it. It's gathered such a cult following that there are now annual Lebowski Fests and though I haven't been to one, if they ever hold it here in the D.C. area, I'd love to see all the freaks trying to dress like The Dude. :)

    Joe,

    The Blunderbuss (Dutch for "Thunder Pipe") was used in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. The round-face english flint lock like mine has would be most common for anything after about 1720. Doglocks were more prevalent in the 1690 - 1720 timeframe and miquilets and matchlocks were more prevalent before that.
