Wrote a new article on the a collection of three German-language #Bibles printed in America by the Saur family in the 1740s-1770s. The third edition played a role in the American Revolutionary #War, as British soldiers used its pages to make paper #cartridges!
Hello all! Here is my #introductions post.
I have a special interest in #pinfire #cartridges and firearms and research everything about them from their use in #MilitaryHistory to #hunting and all about the intricacies of the various manufacturers.
I am a director in the International Ammunition Association and a member of the American Society of Arms Collectors.
Posted a new article on Henry H. Schleber & Co of Rochester, New York; a manufacturer of thread-wound shot concentrators that would allow #hunters to shoot ducks, geese, turkeys, foxes and other animals that were difficult to get close to, from further away.
