No matter what era you live in, gun grabbers just can't stand ordinary citizens having modern weapons...

It's those evil percussion caps that are so easily concealed ...

rifled muskets that can shoot two miles accurately??

so evidently baloney throwing is a much older sport than previously thought...

notice the use of non-profane terms...

in my post, that is...

:D

I heard that if fired just so those weapons, particuarly the .50 cal or greater ones, could bring down a hot-air balloon.:evil:

My only substantive criticism is that the font chosen is not old-fashioned enough to pass muster.

Font style: Baskerville

Creator: John Baskerville, Jan 28, 1706 - Jan 8 1775.

Font predates the intended era of this poster by about 75-100 years.

Baskerville might be an old font, but it has a decidedly modern look and bears little resemblance to handbills of the era that I have seen.

They should have mentioned those nasty bayonets that mount on the guns also!

Pure disinformation. I know of no rifled musket capable of consistently hitting a man sized target at 2 miles. The Whitworth was stretching it beyond 1,000 yards and while it may have hit folks at 1,700, I doubt that it could do it with a regularity that could be considered as accuracy.

Turning to those evil breechloaders and their higher rate of fire, well, when those boys are finished shooting and are empty, we'll club them with sticks. Sect. of War Stanton feared that ammunition would be wasted and units pulled out of action faster when it became exhausted. He was right too. I've read of several accounts where units had to withdraw because they were dry. Berdan Sharpshooter Californy Joe (Truman Head) once had to "forage" from the 5th NY (Duryee's Zouaves) for bullets. Disgusting that he wasted the 60 he carried.

Finally, as for high capacity, does this mean we can't carry lead balls in our mouths like our patriots did at King's Mountain or like Lewis Wetzel did when he was being chased?

Harummph!:D

Caslon, William
William Caslon (also known as William Caslon I – born 1692 in Cradley, Worcestershire, died 1766 in London) was England’s most successful type founder in the eighteenth century. After completing his apprenticeship and working as an engraver in London for a number of years, Caslon founded a type foundry here in 1720. His roman faces, which were based on Dutch types, became increasingly popular from this time onwards and included a series of 40 weights in 1734. In the period between roughly 1740 and 1800, many of the major works in English were printed with Caslon types, including the American Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the USA. Even today, Caslon types from this period are still in use.William Caslon founded a dynasty of type founders, his three successors all bearing the same name and, together with other members of the family, operating various type foundries. The last of these foundries ceased working in 1937.
