The Mountain man museum ???

Quote:
They have Kit Carson's rifle (and so I've read Jim Bridger's and Liver Eating Johnson's too).
If some of you can remember that one of the first copies, was Ithica. Reportedly, they copied the one that belonged to
Kit Carson and the next commercial copy that came along, was the Lyman.

Darned crowbars.
That is the first thing that got my attention. If men were smaller back then, they had to be tough whether they were plowing new ground or hunting meat for the Fir Trade companies. The one I held was really heavy ....

Enjoy and;
Be Safe !!!
