Just curious, what CW period firearm uses .32 centerfire blanks? And which .32? I count 18 pistol and 21 rifle cartridges that are round about .32. If you have found a way to reload .32 rimfire then...
You are seriously using post war propaganda paintings as your documentation of how to wear an overcoat?
