I Bought a Gun

Yup I bought a gun on Saturday.  I saw it online and just had to have it.  It isn't politics.  It isn't for protection.

I just wanted it.  I had to have it.  So I bought it.

I won't be securing it from my child.  I doubt I'll even load it.

If I try to shoot it it will probably explode in my face with my luck.

So why, just why did I buy the dang thing?

Sentimental value.

This is my new gun:

As far as I can tell it is a Blunderbuss.  Most likely a "dragon" and from about 1750.  It is sentimental for me as I had to ancestors fight in the American Revolution on my paternal grandmother's side.

The seller wanted $500 and said similar went for $2000.  I had done my homework.  The similar were in much better condition so I was able to talk him down to $350 even though he claim he himself paid $500.

I will be putting this in a special display case in my home.  If anyone knows more about this gun please tell me.  I'm going to add it to my insurance.
