    Was actually just at the National Firearms Museum today and saw that thing in person. Pretty crazy piece of equipment for 1779.

    ]Considering the Historical Significance of this 46cal Air Rifle of all the videos I've ever seen on YouTube this one takes the Grand Prize. And considering the ramifications Lewis expressed as to their vulnerability to attack it's easy to see why he kept the natives guessing.

    It's too bad we don't have a modern version of this fine weapon. Against the Enemy of Freedom in the coming Second American Revolution I can see where this rifle would give us a Tremendous Advantage.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
