    Give or take a great or two.

    Or was it just good old fashioned American ingenuity?

    Take your pick!

    I bought this wall-hanger because it amused me. The anti's have a fit when gun owners come up with something, hell, anything different, and it scares them. But gun owners have been altering firearms for hundreds of years, and this is a prime example, whatever the reason.

    It originally started out as a 1700's smoothbore flintlock musket, or possibly flintlock fowler. A couple hundred years ago, someone chopped the barrel to a length of 15 7/8", giving this flintlock an overall length of approx 31 1/2" long.

    Was it done because Elmer Fudd's long dead ancestor got a carrot stuck in the end of the barrel, blowing it to smithereens, and he chopped off the end to "fix" it? Or was it done to make a more maneuverable home defense gun? Stagecoach gun or Buffalo gun? Who knows!

    Regardless, I like it, and it's going over the fireplace, along with the other antique firearms.

    That is a NICE looking bunch of meat!

    I can still find a use for my thumb, even though it no longer has a hole to finger.

    I could have been enjoying his nuts.

    It is a shame when people demanding tolerance, have no tolerance
