Title: RARE FIND
Post by: GPEX admin on November 02, 2014, 03:21:23 PM
It's been a while since I've posted about this (2007 I think) and thought some of the new folks might find it interesting.

The only thing about civil war is there are two things that used to happen.  One, they would intentionally double shot their loads.  Two, they would in panic when the other army was advancing get "buck fever" and keep reloading rather than shooting.  Some of the discarded rifle would sometimes have 6-8 shot down the barrel.  They performed the tasks they were trained, but forgot to pull the trigger (probably a good thing because the barrel would not handle it).  Cross shots are incredible.
