Shillelagh, traditional Irish walking stick that can, if the need arises also serve as a very effective defensive weapon made from Irish Blackthorn popular from 1600 to 1900 to circumvent British law prohibiting the Irish from having weapons.  I of course use mine strictly as a cane/walking stick,  I've added a rubber pad to the bottom.

Saw this little creature fluttering around while playing with Border Collie buddy today.  I was able to get a little closer on some shots, took about 30, saved less than ten.

An exceptionally nice day here yielded some nice shots.  Yet another country church and grave yard.

The mountain in the distance is part of the Appalachain Mountain chain.  This particular mountain is part of the Appalachain Mountain Trail, a hiking trail that starts in Maine and ends in Georgia covering some 2,200 miles through 14 states.  A few short miles from this church is a road over the mountain with a spectacular view on a clear day, (I'll do that later while packing more lenses).

One of the more interesting graves in the area, that of John File, born April 7, 1749  and died April 23, 1864, lived 115 years and 16 days.  The bronze plaque on the lower left shows him to be a Revolutionary War Veteran, one of the few who lived to see the nation they created torn apart by the Civil War, 1861-1865.

My afternoon went from 15MPH in a school zone to ''Wonder how fast it'll go'' on the Autobahn.  So, I threw a bunch of junk on a bench and photo'd it.  Okay, prepare for an education. 

 

D750  Nikkor 20-35mm f2.8  (would have been better with my Tamron 90mm Macro) 

 

1/50  f5.6  M  500  35mm  +1.0

 

Original Civil War musket tools and parts.  Yes, they're rusty, the way I got them.  I clean them as I use them.

 

kSr1Uy4l.jpg

 

A friend and co-conspirator in the firearms business who specializes in relining worn or pitted barrels sent my 1863 Springfield barrel back with a fresh liner, and a broken rear sight screw.  It was rusted fast and broke upon removal.  Only the U.S. Government could have thought up a screw like those used on the Springfield Riflemuskets, M-1855 through M-1864 rear sights.  He didn't have a replacement, so out came my junk box of musket parts.  I had one, polished and oiled it and put the sight on and replaced the original cone with a modern one.  Ready to shoot?  Nope, the trigger is way too heavy for target shooting.  In this rusty mess is a tumbler, (just above the stone at 6:00 and a sear, off the upper left corner of the stone.  I'll stone and polish them getting a nice target trigger. 

 

The ''Y'' shape tool at 12:00 is a British Sergent's tool, it's like a Swiss Army Knife with nine tools in one compact package.  The ''T'' shape tool is for removing cones at the breech of about any musket.  The double ring on the right is a 1855 Sharp-shooter sight, it will fit an 1855 short rifle, Fayetteville Rifle, or 1863 Remington short rifle, ( I'll post a picture of a CSA Fayetteville Rifle below, it's mine, but an old picture).  To the left are a sear spring, mainspring, mainspring vice, and two bags of cones, some for Springfields, and some for Enfields, a modern dial caliper upper.  

 

Old photo of my 1862 Confederate Fayetteville short rifle, ( a mix of original and new parts).  When the Confederates raided and burned Harpers Ferry Arsenal in 1861 they took the machinery needed to make rifles and riflemuskets.  The riflemusket machines went to Richmond, VA, the rifle machines went to Fayetteville, NC.  The Fayetteville Rifles are a copy of the U.S. 1855 Rifle minus the tape priming unit in the lock and the patch box in the right side of the stock which had a fitted cut out to hole the ''sharp-shooter'' sight.  The sight still fits the Fayetteville, but must be carried in a pocket or attached on the rifle, clamped on the barrel forward of the front sight.

Now you have more information you'll never use.
