    Equally painful to the person in front of the barrel as in back of it.

    I am admittedly weak and immediately bought one. I will post details and a review once I have received it and had a chance to shoot.

    That DX-12 looks like a hand vac.

    The Diablo looks nice.

    Oh, I know it's not real. I just "want" it to be.

    Only change I'd make is to get rid of the grip and make it forearm-mountable and add 12-gauge shells that incorporate "Captive Netting"...

    I imagine a good number of wrist injuries developing from use.

    Considering a lot of the powder might not even burn up.in it, it might only be 50% horrendous... [laugh]

    And if you Mexican carry it, you might be 0 c#$%. ROFL!!!!


    Hey - you could go total Mad Max with this bad-boy. Just don't load it with a heavy charge and you'd be fine. Some of you have never fired a BP gun. I'm betting you could make a pretty interesting load for this.

    No it hasn't. The last email from yesterday detailed a problem they had with machining that set them back. They expect I will have it in another month. I doubt it but I still want the damn thing so Im going to wait it out.

    Probably the guy who does the test firing is waiting for his hand to heal. Jack.

    I'd be in for the first shot. Again, I'D be loading it. And I'd load it light to start and see how high you can get it before it becomes unbearable.

    A fun toy. Nothing more.

    Too cool. Since its a muzzloader, is it subject to MA storage requirements? On that note, what about cap and ball revolvers?

    Do modern gun makers know about 28, 20 and 16 gauges? Why do they only make cool guns in 12 and 410?
