A challenge to the Civil War blowhards

The past few days have been frustrating.

We busted ass to get a shipment of Enfields out to people in time to go to a big event in VA, and folks are getting a hassle from some blowhard "commanders" who are telling them that Indian made guns are not allowed at the event because they are "unsafe".

What a crock of bull!

Aside from the disturbing fact that people this stupid are allowed to command on the field, they are forcing working class people to buy the inflated price for Italian made muskets for no good reason. Something that costs $1200 MUST be better than something that costs $500, right?

Here is my challenge to any of the stuffed shirt so-called "commanders" out there that seem to think they know things about guns just because they wear uniforms and pretend they are officers on the weekend:

If Indian made guns are somehow unsafe....PROVE IT. Show me evidence that they are unsafe, show me a lab report saying that there is something unsafe about the steel, show me a design flaw, show me a tiny shred of proof that your claims of Indian made Enfields are in any way unsafe.

Guess what? You can't.

Don't let that stop you from running your mouths though, I wouldn't want your pathetic little egos to be neglected. Too bad you don't seek actual knowledge to back up your claims.

We went through this same nonsense with RevWar people over a decade ago. Know what? They were wrong too and Indian made guns have proven themselves to be just as safe as the Italian made guns that blowhards all tend to worship.

Maybe some day the Civil War era blowhards will grow up and accept that fact too.

Bravo Pete. I am a CW reenactor here in Oregon and have to listen to the same pompous blather at our events up here. It usually is from some blowhard who can't run let alone walk and without this type of nonsensical diatribe they don't have anything at all to talk about. Simply put, the Indian made muskets look better and perform just as well as some Italian job.

It is my understanding that an idiot a few years ago was participating in a reenactment and dramatically overloaded his musket and when he pulled the trigger the thing blew to high heaven injuring many people. It wasn't the gun it was the idiot behind it and all his counterparts that watched him do it and didn't stop the dim whit.
