basic questions on use of Springfield 187
I have had this gun in the original package for over 30 years.
I am now retired and would like to do some recreational shooting (tin cans for now). Before I ask a neighbor for help, I have some basic "how not to look like a complete idiot" questions. The instructions say (basically) to remove the loader tube and put the shells in facing forward.
In where ?
I removed the long tube under the barrel. There is a red plastic string plugged into the trigger end of the removed tube and just flopping loose. How do I load the 22's? Do I remove the plastic string and put the shells into the tube??
How many can I put in? (Are you laughing yet ?).
How is the first shell brought up into the chamber (is it called a chamber)?
Is there a safety (is it the little metal slide on top near the stock?)
Every how often should I clean the gun?
All/any help appreciated.

Welcome to The Firing Line, mangurian.
These are all valid questions and will likely be answered best in the Rifle forum.
I'll move this thread over there. Hopefully someone will be along with some accurate answers for you.
