    I went to shoot a few rounds and it shoots nice at close range. Maybe 20-40 yards is good. At long range it needs to be adjsuted more.

    Pretty easy to build if you have heavy machinery. If its by hand I would suggest smaller logs, maybe 4-5 inches max. You can imagine the weight of a full 10 foot tree trunk. We were two grown men and we arent that small... Took awhile to drag and...

    I make some out of .32 cf cases. I make a hole right down the middle and use a .27 cal nail gun blank. No need for BP. Shoots nice.

    I went to shoot yesterday just for fun with my dad. I bought him a Henry wild life edition 45-70 brass frame for Christmas. It was his first time shooting it so I brought my rifle too. I was probably at 50 yards or so and hit the target (A road sign...

    Dont like Elans. They are weak and short. They get stuck everywhere. Only good thing about them is that they weigh nothing.

    That makes sense. Il try to give it a few pumps if it bogs down again. Il still send it to a competent mechanic. When we were messing around in it, for the carb and such, we had to empty fuel lines, so we gave it a few pumps and cranked and cranked....
