I'm sorry to write this to the Scouts-L group but I know that there is a
whole bunch of expertise out there that might be able to help me with this
question. Here 'tis:
Can anyone assist me in ascertaining the handgund and rifles that were in
common usage during the Klondike Gold Rush era. I'm looking for historical
accuracy. In otherwords, I know that I could look up the manufactured
dates of various weaponery but want someone that has a grasp of the period
as well....ie. these folks didn't always have the "new edition" of firearms.
PLEASE reply off-list. I apologize that this has only "event related"
relevance to scouting.
BLUE SKIES!, Any day above ground is a good day!
