Attention New Members and those new registering!
We had a lot of problems with spammers and bot attacks with the stock measures provided by the software. The 7 for registration was a fix that we came up with on our own that has worked quite well. Yes it is a PIA for both you and administration to put you onto your chosen username.
If you come back on and your login does not work retry with your username without the 7.

Thanks for joining us from the administration.

Found this in a vintage photoset captioned as "an American youth poses with his firearms collection, USA 1959". It might even be somebody here! SW

Blue Streak air rifle next to him, and he's holding an old "Hahn 45" C/O-2 s/a revolver in his hands.
A few of those revolvers came in.22 airgun cal.
I also make out an Arisaka, a Browning auto 12, and what looks like a Marlin single shot .22 on the floor.
Memory escapes me on the lever .22- I think Stevens with the slab sides stock, but it's been quite a while since I've seen one.

Regards,

Doc Sharptail
