You guys are bringing back the memories now. I had a .43 Spanish Rolling Block when I was about 18; got a beer-sack full of original BP loads with it, in the trade. We used to take it down to the rock quarry in winter, and shoot those big icicles off the bluffs with it, from about 200 yards. It'd bring 'em down, too.
Cool old rifles, for sure.
I'm inclined to think if a man hasn't gotten his point across in 4912 attempts, 4913 probably isn't going to do it.
