    Default Tally To, Lads!

    Own a musket for home defense, since that's what the founding fathers intended. Four ruffians break into my house. "What the devil?" As I grab my powdered wig and Kentucky rifle. Blow a golf ball sized hole through the first man, he's dead on the spot. Draw my pistol on the second man, miss him entirely because it's smoothbore and nails the neighbors dog. I have to resort to the cannon mounted at the top of the stairs loaded with grape shot, "Tally ho lads" the grape shot shreds two men in the blast, the sound and extra shrapnel set off car alarms. Fix bayonet and charge the last terrified rapscallion. He Bleeds out waiting on the police to arrive since triangular bayonet wounds are impossible to stitch up. Just as the founding fathers intended.

    So, 4 people are dead. Certainly better than some right winger killing 22 people at Walmarts in 50 seconds.

    Sean, either you live in a very sick society, or your perception of it is that it is a very sick society.
    Of course both may well be true, the figures certainly suggest it.

    From your posts, we probably know you more than you think.

    I can whole-heartedly assure you that you do not. I'm not going to hold it against you, though. Just because we may not agree on much outside of boats doesn't mean you aren't a fantastic bunch of crotchety old bastards.

    I thought it a plausible tale. Not sure what's got everyone so worked up.

    Of course if assailant #2 had a semi-auto 45, the story woulda ended differently.

    They would have to be super-ruffians to not be running like hell away from the crazy bastard with the Kentucky long rifle and flintlock pistol.

    One of my maternal uncles was a rifle maker. I got to shoot a .54 pair (rifle/pistol) and a .32 squirrel rifle he made. He made these, and others lock, stock, and barrel.
    He was a bowyer, too.

    I’m a sell out, new school .50 inline 209 primer guy, myself.

    If you had only loaded that smoothbore pistol with nails, you'd have had them all with one shot.
    And you're saying you don't have a brace of pistols? Well, no wonder.

    Grape is effective, but tough on the drywall though. I prefer to go older school, and rain down missiles and molten lead through murder holes in the barbican's floor. But ymmv.

    And no. No boiling oil. The smell would linger for weeks.

    Why do you keep calling him a Trump lover Jamie? I don't think he is.
