    That is interesting about the "Peters Crimp". Here is a different solution from Laflin & Rand, and then Hercules. Infallible was introduced in 1898. I have actually shot a small quantity that had been stored under water for 80 years and then dried. Yup, it worked just fine. RS_DSCN0343a.jpg

    You have to figure that with “toxic” right there in the name it would be.

    Here are a few extolling the virtues of John Brownings Auto-5:

    And the Man himself holding his creation;

    Winchester/USRAC may have used the advertising tag line “An American Legend” to describe their wares... but I think they were secretly talking about John Moses myself...;)

    Stay safe.

    Always thought it was a bitter pill for Peabody to swallow when Peabody invents the Falling block design, then Martini improves it and then employs Peabody to make his Martinis because Martini can not keep up with demand. Sometimes its not fair..

    Underwater ammo test.. Neat they found the ammo to the trapdoors & Gatlings on board. Wonder if the 6mm ammo went up with the explosion??

    Here are some cool 50-odd year old ads from Pietro B’s 495 year old namesake...

    C973522E-5DB8-4D91-858F-0DBDFE23D42F.jpeg 78892618-FEFD-4E11-857B-6827C85821A2.jpeg 8FC364AB-B655-40B8-9B6A-BFAE31409629.jpeg 1755BB91-4083-466C-B965-D0C577BD8B11.jpeg

    These aren’t the most vintage advertisements, but the company that produced the firearms is as vintage as it gets!

    Stay safe.

    A shop here got one of those in from somewhere nearby. Impressive. I don't know what he sold it for, but it was sure more than $100.

    The Creedmoor long range matches were a big deal, with international teams competing. The first was vs. the Irish team at 800, 900, and a 1000 yards, over 1/2 mile. The US team won by one point.

    Believe it or not, they were held in Queens, NYC. The course was built by the NRA with funds provided by NYS. The site is now the grounds of a state psychiatric hospital, with the same name.

    Not sure how old, “old” has to be but down at the farm the calendar has been out of date for more than a decade. :)
