Meet Miss Daisy!
« on: August 01, 2020, 03:26:18 PM »
Everyone, I'd like to introduce you to Miss Daisy, my new 32 caliber flintlock squirrel rifle that I received Friday. This beauty, made by my dear friend, John Pruitt, has a Rice 42" octagon barrel, a large Siler lock, and a whole bunch of homemade "Pruitt Special" furniture. The stock is made from walnut off the Haverstick family farm and trimmed with Osage. I'm currently shooting 35 grains of 3F Goexx powder and a .31" inch patched round ball. It is devastating on squirrels! Pay no attention to the spelling on the side plate. John is a gunsmith, not a wordsmith. Besides, I think it adds a certain charm to the "riffle".
