Cane rifle
« on: May 09, 2014, 11:36:01 AM »
Does anyone here have one of these? I have never seen an original, but 25 years or so ago, I had a repro muzzleloader cane gun.

buffalo bill museum in Cody has some cane guns.
I more than likely saw it when I toured the museum a few years ago.
They have soooooo much stuff you could easily spend a week
 here it is. It is in one of the 5 center of the west museums in the Cody area

see the attached picture for another rare gun they have

In a way it would of been nice to be around back then. Time of invention refinement and NO LAWS restricting what you could do. concerning firearms

We stopped in and visited ~2000 or so. Didn't have the time to visit as much as we would have liked. Also visited the old Ballard Rifle Co. and got a Tee shirt!

The Berman Museum in Anniston has some going all the way back to the beginnings of firearms.

Sword canes are illegal to carry in WA State, I don't remember seeing cane gun's in the laws before but that means nothing.  I would dearly love to see the Cody Museum! My wife would roll her eyes at the mention of it as I can take hour's to go through exhibit's. She is usually waiting for me in the lobby. She could probably leave a museum for lunch and I'd be none the wiser happy to read,view and ponder on things..
