    Oh man. If they take the same cylinder as the revolvers can't you get a 22mag cylinder for pretty darn cheap and end up with a gun that shoots both? I know they used to be cheap at IRG haven't looked recently though.

    That's an even better idea.
    Under no pretext should arms and ammunition be surrendered; any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated, by force if necessary.

    Looks like a fun toy...but I can't help but think that it would be a lot more comfortable to shoot with a slight pistol grip stock. I normally like straight-grip stocks on levers, muzzleloaders, etc. but in this case a standard pistol grip stock, something like the design used on a Browning BLR or Marlin levergun, would make the required two-handed grip more comfortable. Just holding up a standard straight-grip rifle to my shoulder and trying to use the grip shown in the video is very awkward; doing the same experiment with a pistol-gripped lever is much nicer.

    Another question I have is how well a revolver action feels when fired right in front of your face. I actually didn't much care for the Browning Buckmark rifle I tried years ago, as I could feel a fair bit of debris and blowback gas on my face during firing, and a revolver action seems like this might be a concern. Anyone shot a revolving rifle who can comment on this?
    Eat right, don't drink, don't smoke, exercise, get lots of sleep...and die anyway!

    If you want to buy it, say "I'll take it".
    If you want to make an offer, say "I'll take it for $X".
    If you want to practice your negotiating skills by asking if I will accept $X, with no intention of actually buying...say nothing.

    I had a revolving .410 for a short time and with the gas shields off nothing was directed back at my face actually, it all blew out to the sides.
