Just saw this on yahoo. couldnt believe it. Heck, i'd be pissed if i went out to my grandpa's farm that weekend and forgot to take my .22 out of the trunk (but probably be understanding even though...)

but a fake civil war musket?

gunaphobia at its best.

Edit: replica, so is it real? can replica guns handle the pressure of firing a real round?

for some reason i have a feeling a shooting spree in a school would be hard to do when you had to take a minute to reload between each shot

A replica is like a duplicate right?

That really stinks. I do civil war reenacting with the 150th NY, I know a few guys from the 124, but cant say i Know that kid. In any case back when I was in 10th grade I believe it was, 9 years ago or so, I did a demo for my class and no one was concerned when i walked in with my 1863 springfield. Times have changed eh?

The reproductions are capable of hurting people though. The powder charge is enough to give you a really bad burn, and even the wadding can cause harm if it hits you soon after leaving the bbl. They are also Fully Funtional in that you CAN fire live ammo out of them. I've done it, and the results are impressive. .58 cal is pretty big and it makes a nasty entry/exit wound.

I dont think this kid was a threat though, best he can probably do is shoot 3 rounds a minute and charge bayonette HUUURRAAHHH.

Hell...

handbasket...

I'll be in the basement loading mags to prepare for the impending collapse of a society without enough backbone to support itself.
