    The M69 was the replacement for the S&W 696 the Ruger GP100/44 was also a replacement for that gun. Mine is a 696 no dash as opposed to a 696-1 or -2. -1 had the firing pin in the frame as opposed to on the hammer, and the -2 had the silly...

    Ken H: That large Bowie you showed comes very close to what Ed Henry would have classified as an "Artillery Short Sword." which I guess was a common thing for artillery crews to have on them for CQB or just opening Powder Bags. That is a good...

    Roadie: Slingshots have alot in common with Conventional Archery. The anchor points are virtually identical, as are methods of sighting. The biggest variable I can find is having the yoke perpendicular to the bands when at full draw. One of the...

    Just use the 1/4" felt wad in the base of the shot cup. It cups around the ball very well and centers the ball in the wad during firing which in turn centers the ball in the bore as it travels . Randy

    Long Knife: It's not so much about what twist rate is needed to stabilize those slugs, it's about what rifled barrels you can get to shoot them thru. Most 12 ga. Rifled Shotgun Barrels are between 1:34 and 1:36, so that's what you've got to work...

    When I started, the instructions that came with the Whamo Slingshot said to hold the thing with your thumb and fore finger straddling the yoke, your other 3 fingers wrapped around the handle. Then when you'd draw it and hold it at a 45 degree angle...

    A .50 cal ball weighs 175 gr. and with the right slingshot would be lethal inside 10 yards. Cast is fine. Although my LGS has swaged Round Balls for Muzzleloaders in about every size known to man. $10 for a hundred. Randy

    The sights on that gun looked nice. You will have to accept a little less than perfect accuracy, but the satisfaction you get from shooting Iron Sights far exceeds that of using a Scope IMHO. Randy

    With the .662 RB the hot tip is to put a 1/4 felt cushion wad under the ball. This helps to center the ball in the wad as it accelerates down the barrel. Don't go overboard trying to push these too hard. Regular Trap loads with the ball and wad...

    That's good because all you need to focus on is the Front Sight. Hold the sight alignment in place with your cheek weld and then put the Front Sight on the target and let fly. That's all there is to it. Come on, you can try it? When have I...
