Gasua tintype 917Today’s blog article is about a rifle barrel currently in the posession of Regina Fortenberry Cross.  One day while showing it to me I began to wonder about it.  What kind of gun was it from?  How old was it?  Who was the original owner?  As it turned out, the barrel actually had a lot to say!  I really did not expect to write an article about it, but here it is.  From the blogroll on the right, please choose “Rifle Barrel from the Past” and enjoy!
