Cleaning tear down after firing lessens the enjoyment to me.

When I first started teaching, a student invited me to visit another classroom during a free period. It was "show-n-tell," and he had brought a new rifle to show off. He knew I would be interested. This was not problematic in any way. Things have changed a lot.
My boy Reid was a cowboy last year for Halloween and I bought him some really cool metal cap gun revolvers for his holsters. They wouldn't let him through the front door of the school and started to lecture my wife about the message he's sending. Everything has really taken a turn for the worse in this day in age.
When I was in elementary school I would sometimes take my JC Higgins 22 to school then a friend & myself would walk home doing some squirrel hunting as we walked. It wasn't a problem in the 50's.

It was generally better in terms of freedom
We just rode off on our Schwinn Stingrays and roamed far and wide engaging in mischief
Mom and dad did not keep tabs

People did not beef about firearms or get the vapors

Well if you say so :lol: Thing is most of us didn't have much of anything in material goods. I grew up on an 80 acre 2-Horse (Literally) Cotton & Corn Farm. Things we needed most we did have such as a tight roof over our heads and plenty of food to eat. Our clothes were clean and pressed although my jeans or overalls might have patches on them.

Here's a couple of my BP Firearms for your viewing pleasure.

1858 Remington by Pietta (Sheriff's Model which never really existed) It's a nice shooter with 25 grains of 3f, a lubed felt wad and topped with a .454 RB.

This is a Pedersoli's version of a NW Trade Rifle. It's a 62 caliber (20ga) smooth bore. Quite frankly it doesn't shoot worth a hoot with a round ball so mainly it's used loaded with 1oz of #4 or #6 shot.

I don't have a clue of how this post wound up like this. At least you go to see all three of my BP guns. The rifle shown in the 2nd post is actually a 58 caliber 1853 Enfield.
