 :)  I don't know about anybody else, exactly, but I do know (I think) I was really bored in February.  What of February I can remember (not much) that is   ;)

There is the possibility the whole thread initially started out as a Trolling expedition to stir things up.  Or Not.

HAPPY MONDAY by the way

A”little” off topic, but not much.. You all were discussing the term “long colt”. Did I not read somwhere that the term originated in the 1800swhen a guy would go into a gun shop and ask for a box of 45 shorts?(meaning he wanted 45 Schofield rounds, or a box of 45 longs meaning 45Colt?

Now there is a subject that has never been brought up or discussed before,   Coffinmaker!

Another vote for the affordable Rossi 92 in 45 Colt. Stock sights are very accurate.

 ;)  Nah.  Actually, inna 1800s a Guy would go into the local Hardware store and General Emporium and ask for a box of "45" Shorts, meaning he really wanted some Bloomers with a bit more "Crotch Space."   ::)   I betcha.

I vote for the French Foreign Legion.  They'd issue a rifle.  And some "45" shorts  8)

I think the OP opted for a Porter lever action turret rifle, had a chain fire and was laid to rest.
