NSA probably knows your underwear size, or at least has it on record somewhere in their files.

Civil war era Winchester? If I'm correct, such rifles can fetch anywhere from $10,000 to $35,000 depending on the condition.

Holy bastard redcoats Paul Revere. Very nice. Do you cast your own shot or is it premade ball

For my other smoke poles and black powder pistols I cast, I will have to get a minnie ball mold for this one. I can cast enough .50 ball in 30 minutes to last me several trips to the range. I also had to get musket percussion caps as the nipple is larger than all my other rifles.

That's a Henry rifle - predecessor to the Winchester, made from 1860-65.

The current Henry firearms being manufactured in New York are not connected in any way to the originals.

That's a great hobby.

Your assault rifle is one of the most handsome designs ever made - that and the 1841 Mississippi Rifle.

Circa 1863, but it was the assault rifle of its day, just ask the Confederates that were on the receiving end.
How can that be an assault rifle? It doesn't have a "Shoulder thing that goes up"

I have been involved in the gun culture for over 40 years and I have never heard of a should thing.
