I kind of like when the shop gets in junk. I got to pick through it today. The 410 I'll use.....except maybe for those sealed military looking ones. The TC Hot shot is just neat old school. The Glaser well.....
The 32 UMC is old BP and someone needs it.....BTW they are fun to shoot with the smoke.
The 32 rim fire. ....flip for sure.
The bag stuff is neat all old stuff.
Brass shotgun, 38-40,38-55, etc.

I think I'm a hoarder

    You might be able to dig around on-line and find out what those wierd ones are exactly.

    There's a box under the blue red topped Daisy cylinder that looks really old....

    quite quite a fine assortment, I remember those tubes of BB’s from when I was a kid. I have some similar brass .410 shells lost in my mess somewhere!

    I wonder if the shot capsule work in anything other than the contender? I seem to recall they used a screw in choke tube specifically designed to open those as they exited the barrel.

    IIRC, No.

    You are correct that they have to be cut open by the "choke"

    It’s not hoarding if you “have a use” for it 🤣😆😉
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    Good eye Mike....at least a hundred years old.
    They are the BP ones.


    I did find out some.
    Made by Frankford Arsenal in April of 1886 for a Carbine. They have shot in them.

    You guys are correct only for contenders. Some are loaded as ammo and some are the shot capsules for loading your own.

    The capsules are huge compared to most.

    I've got some stuff that I've kept for years and don't even 100% know what it's for!
  • earlyagainearlyagain Posts: 6,748 Senior Member
    That box of BP 32s is very cool!

    I think it was 1911 that Remington acquired UMC.

    The original snake shot.

    45-70 snake shot.
    The snakes were
    ( MUCH )bigger back then.

    I hoard ammo as well.  Nothing valuable, though.  Need a range day and shoot up some bags (yes, I keep loose rounds in plastic zip-lock bags) to get rid of old ammo.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    And what is wrong with that?  My neighbors don't seem to like it either...  B)
