If the era were a bit earlier, say late Civil War, I'd go with this outfit.

Thank you.  The Burnside just came back to me.  My brother gave it to me this motnh and I remember using it many years ago for re-enacting and target work.  I intend to work up a load using a round ball, probably .565, and a concial 360 which I believe is the original weight.  Not sure what powder sbharge but if I remember, the brass can hold 60 or 65 grains.  The little carbine only weighs 7 pounds so it is a delight to tote.  Looking forward to hunting with it, maybe this fall.

OK, I messed up the pistol. Ifn you notice, I installed the Colt style front sight on backwards. A note from someone on GB noticed it and mentioned it to me.

I also love that Burnside, always thougt that was a real neat piece. Wonder if it got its name from Gen. Burnside..?

Yes, it was originally designed by Burnside, as an improvemnet on the Hall rifle and carbine.  The Hall lacked a way to seal the breech to the barrel.  Burnside's solution was a cone shaped cartridge that sealed the chamber/barrel gap.  It works quite well.  Burnside left the military to futher develop his rifle and company but failed at both, eventually losing control of the company and his patents.  When the Cival War broke out, he re-upped and the Burnside rifle became the second most used carbine in the War, behind the Sharps.  In actual use, it is a fiarly easy firearm to shoot and reload.  Unfortunately, it was not readily converted to using cartridge not sparked by a percussion cap and fell into disfavor after the emergence of rimfire and centerfire firearms.

General Burnside was put in charge of the Army of the Potomac,  and was responsible for the  Battle of Fedreicksburg, in Nov, 1852.  That was a massacre of union troops.  In Dec 1862 he ordered and end run around Lee's army that turned into the "Mud March"  that literally bogged down in muddy roads due to heavy rains.  This story was told that a soldier picked up a hat to find that there was a man's head under it sticking out of the mud.  After expressing his surprise that the head was alive, the head told him that the real surprise was that there were four mules and a wagon under him!!!  Burnside, who never wanted the top job anyway, resigned in disgrace.  He was considered a handsome man with whiskers growing down his cheeks, a feature to be known to this day as "sideburns".

Not sure if this thread is still on anyone's mind but if I lived a bit past the era mentioned, I might have carried this pair.



The 30 US and the 38 Special would be a good pairing.

My Springfield 50-70 and a muzzle loader in case those new fangled boolits didn't go bang.
Like StrawHat said, a few years late and I got a Krag 30-40 and a .38 Official Police (I sold the mammoth ivory grips).

...All you need now, is a good scattergun with'em...

While I have more than a few shotguns, I do not find them suitable for patrol or scout duty.  I see that role as more of a far away information gathering role.  Shotguns are more upclose devices and there I prefer a handgun.
