Chain fire, mostly myth?
Or constant danger?
I'm a novice, and everytime I read something about C&B revolvers, it includes a mention of CHAIN FIRES.
Today at the range, one of the volunteer range masters was asking me what precautions I was taking to avoid a CHAIN FIRE. (smearing on crisco and beeswax doesn't inspire confidence)
Truth is, my 51 Navy always blows all the goop off the cylinder chambers on the first shot and often loses a cap or two (Yes, I'm getting better nipples ASAP). Am I on borrowed time?
SHOW OF HANDS: Who has witnessed a chain fire? If you did, what happened? Did all hell break loose with balls and frags flying all over? Do you have an eye patch and a peg leg?
