    Here's a picture of great-grandfather Poultrygeist who served in the CSA Army. The pistol in his belt has always looked somewhat suspicious. What do y'all think?

    Hard to imagine he had a flintlock. I suspect it may have been drawn on the picture. I have his Colt Navy Six cap and ball.

    Can anyone tell for sure if that's a Confederate officer's uniform?

    The saber too, they do look like later additions. Heck, so does the coat and hat.

    Was this perhaps Civil War Colorforms?

    We had an original Gillespie Rifle in the family for many years. As a kid I remember playing cowboy and Indians with it. We had no idea of it's value and it was played with so much it literally broke into pieces. The Gillespie Rifle helped turn the tide at Kings Mountain during the American Revolution. These rifles were made in NC near the SC line.

    Confederate uniforms weren’t very uniform. Materials and dyes varied by availability and often Confederate soldiers wore local county and state militia uniforms. Officers often had uniforms made by local tailors and such uniforms often differed from official patterns.

    The new Kriss Vector CRB 20 arrived today. I added the optic, the vertical grip and loaded up some magazines in preparation for a trip to the range tomorrow.

    I think those photos are considered pornography here in CA.

    Here, too!

    Unlike California, the term, used here, is not a pejorative.

    SN validates to April 1945 (one month before the surrender of Germany). The Russian army has surrounded Berlin. Hitler is dead. German army groups are marching west to surrender to the Americans. The children and old people of Berlin are given 1 shot crude rifles to stop the Russians.

    BUT

    In the mountains at the Walther factor in Zella-Mehlis, someone had a cased, fully engraved, gold plated PPK with 2 numbered and matching magazines and fire blued small parts, custom made for them. The factory could have made hundreds of military pistols in the time and man hours this piece of "bling" took to create.

    Happy birthday to my m1917 enfield (eddystone).100 years old and still a tack driver.Heres a short read of how they came about.Interesting little bit was how soldiers of the day were expected to hit a man sized target at 1000 yards with open sites and the m1917 was good at that.http://www.historyofwar.org/articles/weapons_enfield_p14_m1917.html
