    I got one

    After years of wanting one, I finally have one.
    A friend had one, and I told him a while ago, that if he ever wanted to sell it, I'd buy it from him.
    He's getting to old to shoot anymore.
    Kind of bad timing as I'm thinking of cutting back.
    Two friends moved off island, and no one really has the same interest as we had.
    He stopped by with it, and I checked it out.
    New owner of a 1876 Martini Henry.
    Came with the bayonet and sling.
    I'm happy, happy, happy.
    Now have to make cases, maybe look for dies, and maybe a mold.
    Already had 100 24ga cases.
    I'll post some pictures later.

    Haven't had time to do anything to it.
    I guess I should slugg it before doing anything else.
