    This is the air rifle that Lewis and Clark took on their expedition and AMAZED the Indians!!! Very interesting.

    It takes 1500 strokes to pump this rifle to full pressure, after which it could shoot more than 40 .46 cal. round balls, each of which can blast a clean hole through a 1 inch pine board at 100 yards.

    This is a VERY interesting gun ! O.K. how many of you very gun- knowledgeable folks out there even knew that a rifle like this ever existed?, especially way back then? I hope you enjoy this like I did. This video is with sound and great on full screen.

    <Why there aren't any school shootings in Israel! Teacher with long gun slung over her shoulder!!!

    Some time ago (over a year?) The Columbian had an article on it too. So, when someone says that repeating arms are new, remind them of this one!
