    Most guys use something in 45cal 45-60, 45-70, 45-90, or 45-110 or a 45cal muzzle loader shooting slugs

    Nice!

    A gun from the 1870s must come with a few stories

    Yeh Phillip it originally belonged to Davey Crocketts best mate and my great great grandpa Grizzly Rushy. Bet it turns out real sweet.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
