Pull-thru... a 3' length of light rope/twine with a weight and loop at opposite ends. A cloth is inserted in the loop and lubricated with oil. The weighted end is placed in the barrel at the breech and "dropped" to the muzzle end. Then the cloth is pulled through the barrel several times to remove residual powder and to lubricate the shooting iron. Johnny keep your gun clean.

I would never scare small children with "warning shots". Teenagers? Hmmmm...

I am presently being serenaded by hundreds and hundreds of crows in my maple and pines out back. Either that or they are voicing their displeasure at my waking them an hour ago when I stepped outside to gauge the frost threat level. The migration is underway.

The frost threat level is high but the flowers may just have to die as the crows will fly and I await dawn with camcorder and camera.
