    A pretend chain of command can't do much here, I'm afraid. Even if they were able to somehow shame the boyfriend into some immediate rectification of the problem, it's pretty...

    You will also find that if you make authentic 1855 or 1862 style paper cartridges, if you put more or less than 60 grains of powder in them the result will not be a correct length of cartridge.

    Nope, there is only one button hole at one end of the brace strap, and another on the leather piece with the buckle as seen in front.

    Thanks for the tips. I'm pretty sure I bought them from White and Wambaugh but I'm not 100% certain.
