    Something Wicked This Way Comes.... oh yes... yes it does (my new pistol)

    12 rounds of 45-70 in under 3 seconds. Street Sweeper LHC 45/70 pistol..... When you absolutely positively have to kill every elephant in the room, accept no substitutes.

    I pick it up on the 15th, it's classified as a pistol, now I need to find a hip or thigh holster for it.

    Nice handgun! If I could find one at a decent price I'd have one too.

    In answer to all the questions.... I don't pick it up till July 15th. I have no idea the recoil but the thing is heavy so I don't really expect much more that a 44 magnum. I will post a video of me shooting it as soon as I can.

    Where did you find that thing? Some kind of custom job? 45-70 seems like a pretty oddball cartridge for, well, that. Aren't they 12ga?

    I found it at the Puyallup gun show. Its not custom, it was built in the 80's and classified as a pistol and made by Cobray. They called it a "Ladies Home Companion." Because the shell is under 1/2 inch in diameter it got classified as a pistol instead of an AOW or destructive device (ie; no paperwork needed). They made them for 45/70 and another model that shot .45LC/.410 shotshell. The daddy of them all was a 12ga version.

    the 12ga version can been seen shooting here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xt3z7...eature=related

    What are those three extra holes in the "cylinder" for? Looks like the one up top is for a huge extractor, the others...?

    I can only assume... I'm still trying to find out more details on the weapon. I would guess some sort of "loaded" indicator??

    here is some ammo that costs more, although not made to shoot through the one m1 is getting.
    these(the 540gr) are made to shoot through 55" of pressed newspaper or end-end of a buffalo. very little expanding and near 100% retention.

    you might want to pick up a new double-thick belt to go with that......
    I have a 45-70 rifle, and no desire to have a pistol in the caliber, tho the BFR is at least more "wearable" if that's a word.
    But I'll give ya this, it would get most anyone's attention!
