  1. Agree with Shorty... Several 7gal jugs to hold tap water, bleach, batteries, first aid/meds/scripts, several gallons of gas, lots of salt to preserve food, alternative cooking method...oh and barter items, booze, cigarettes, lots of cheap lighters.... If I had additional money...a stripper/hot nurse to take care of me when I’m sick...that would keep my blood flowing... :))

    M1 Carbine

    Agreed, have learned tons. I really like the book..."U.S. M1 Carbines, Wartime Productiond" by Craig Riesch. Very-very informative! YouTube is great. But it's YouTube and that everyone doesn't always know what they're talking about. We find that out very quickly. I have a problem with people that want to strip stocks and strip away the history. Plus most of them damage them, takeing away too much wood. I feel that we are the stewarts for them. we are just preserving them for the next owner or generation. Really-really enjoy them and have learned a lot!!! Thank y'all for yor help!!

  13. Hello to all!!! Saw this site a couple of times as I have been growing in this area. And liked it!!! So I joined. : ) I started learning respect, proper handling and to shoot from my Dad "a WWII Vet" when I was young. Last year or so I have reengaged in target shooting. For me it is relaxing and enjoyable. "Accept recently, lol, the part about finding ammo..." And I don't mind that it affords one protection. I do have a big pet peeve....I don't care if a gun is unloaded, I was taught to never point a weapon at anything you are not wanting to destroy!!! I see people everywhere, gun shops, shows, the range flashing people...I believe in handling all guns as if loaded and with respect. So I just joined, looking to grow and learn more. Looking forward to meeting good people. Looking for good places to learn, shoot and add to what I have around. In south of Nashville area. David
  14. Thank you to the above!!! Yes thk u, Ramrod Remove nipple with nipple wrench, rein with a film of antisieze. Boiling hot water for cleaning...good point!!! Pouring boiling hot water down the barrel at the end "with tongs." Thanks again!!!
  15. I just picked up a Thompson Hawken 50 cal Muzzleloader. It is used and I would like to clean and care for it asap. But, thought it would be prudent to gather some information n knowledge before doing so. There is a wealth of information on the internet and videos on YouTube. Yes, some good and some.... That being said. Would anyone with good knowledge of this firearm be so kind as to.share any thoughts. How do I make sure it is not loaded? The rod sticks out of the end of the barrel about 7/8" almost an inch "if that helps." My thought is to take it to a gunsmith or shop to make sure. Lol, Beats being stupid n stuff blowing up in ones face! : ) So far I believe I should "please excuse my lack of terminology" 1, make sure it is not loaded. 2, pull the bore rod out. 3 Push out and pull the free pin that holds barrel. 4, Carefully lift the barrel up and free of the stock. 5. Put the bridge/firing/primer end of the barrel in soapy water "dish soap?" 6. Swab the bore out with appropriate nylon rod and patches. 7. Brush the boar "this time" with appropriate rod and brush 8. Swab the bore dry with appropriate nylon rod and patches. 9. Blow the bore dry from the muzzle end with clean dry compressed air, "and or should I bake it dry in the oven at about 300 degrees." 10. Bore butter the inside and out 11. Remove the hammer assembly and dry brush it out. And we're it seats in the stock 12. Should I wipe it down with oil and oil it? 13. Should I put a conditioner on the wood stock? 14. Reassemble in reverse order, snugging the screw. Thank you!!! For any and all help...
