    he had a 500 nitro and 577 nitro there aswell.....oh and an 8 bore muzzle loading rifle

    a M1 carbine is an excellent rifle and with soft point ammunition is a good home defense weapon.....ive always wanted one but have never gotten around to buying one...if its one of the original military guns and not one of the later reproductions its actually worth more than you probably think....not a safe queen dollar amount but not exactly a cheap gun either....if i had one it would live beside the bed.....right now i keep a lever action Marlin beside the bed for bumps in the night for the same reasons your M1 is good, its short(my Marlin has a 18 inch barrel) and handy for moving through the house and easier to shoot under stress than a handgun though i do have a 1911 pistol aswell....

    i hope never to have need for it aswell but but better to have and never need than need and not have....worst thing in the world to me would be loosing my wife and no way that i wont protect her with everything i have.....luckily for all our crime here, break ins while someone is home is very, very rare precisely because 90% of households have guns in Montana....

    Rattler, alas, it is no where near original. Pretty sure it's a take-home, but it's been tweaked substantially. http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=529260 I do have some hollow points for it, but I'm using them up as sighting practice. For now, FMJ and locked tight. I may rethink it later.


    An 8 bore?!?!? Wow! Picture?

    Ohhh, I see. It's not 8 bores like I thought, it's more like it would be 8 gauge if it were a shotgun. Right? That was quite a bang, and the guy shooting almost got knocked on his butt. Heh!

    Most of the markings that would have made the carbine more collectible and readily identifiable as GI or not have been ground/sanded off. Those who know can tell, but... Yeah. Still, it doesn't matter to me, really. I don't intend to sell it yet, so value is unimportant, except sentimental value. Dory left it for me, so, I'll take care of it, and learn something new and meet new friends in the process.

    Very nice guns rattler! The artwork is beautiful. I'm sure it was a real pleasure shooting the 303, great looking gun.


    This solves all those cartridge ejection issues, be it down the shirt or across the face. It's a heavy gun, but that's nice when firing this round. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBGKi0OTDb8

    bore=guage.....generally when its a smooth bore they refer to them as 8 gauges when rifled its an 8 bore...the term refers to how many pure lead balls sized to muzzel diameter it takes to make a pound....8 bore=8 lead balls at bore size to make a pound.....but this is rough as there is alot of variation between makers....especially with muzzle loaders....

    Andrew, had seen that before but havent heard much about it since the first time i saw it....
