    Guy doesn't know his geography very well. The headwaters of the Potomac in the "Cascades?"

    Otherwise, fascinating.

    I just read that they had three of these air cartridges for the rifle.

    I guess this could be considered the original Air-(not so)Soft.

    In Napoleon's time he outlawed all air guns and decreed that anyone found with one was to be executed immediately.

    8 former US Presidents have been NRA Members
    80 MILLION gun owners didn't shoot anyone today, a few criminals did!

    The "Feedback Score" is low by 4, not everyone posts it I guess.

    Hey Deen, what was Napoleon's reason to outlaw them? Are you more familiar with his motivations?

    Very cool! I'd hate to be the guy who had to pump it up with the 1500 strokes though!

    Very cool. I had no idea that air guns have been around so long.
