Re: Pretty cool finds

Always interesting to find signs of battle, I watch a couple of metal detecting channels that focus mainly on the Civil War. I'm pretty sure that had I been around in the 1700s my rebel attitude would have put me on the winning side.. :wink:

The UK does have the benefit of the Gulf Stream so we rarely get similar temperatures.

I just picked up a Stevens 94 single shot .410 only cost about $88 bucks and it looks almost new apart from the usual dings from the gun safe. I also bought a box of those little two inch shells, I would have bought more but they only had them in #6 shot.

Rats are perfect quarry for.410s as they are often close to building you don't want to damage, the little two inch shell is ideal but I don't think they're available in the US.
