The Lewis & Clark Girandoni Air Rifle
Many people that I talk to about air guns have the impression that most air rifles and air pistols shoot small caliber pellets or even BBs. They are amazed to learn that there are air rifles known as big bore air rifles that are capable of taking down large animals such as a deer and that these air rifles have the ability to shoot heavy pellets such as 9mm, .45 and even .50 caliber with authoritative results. Given modern technology, many people think that the big bore air rifle is something new. However, from 1790 to 1815, the Austrian Army used a 22-shot .46 caliber repeating air rifle known as the Girandoni air rifle because unlike single shot gun powder muskets there was no smoke to be seen and very little noise to be heard. Soldiers had to be specially trained and hand pumping the air reservoir 1500 times to a working pressure of 800 psi finally gave way to newly developed repeating gun powder air rifles that were arriving on the scene.
Consensus has it that the Girandoni air rifle was carried by Lewis and Clark on their famous expedition in 1803 to 1806. In fact, two accomplished Pennsylvania gun maker historians recently succeeded in producing four working reproductions of an original Girandoni air rifle as shown by the American Rifleman videos below. One was given to the donor of the original, two were kept by the gun makers for demonstration purposes and one was sold to a friend for $34,000. When I asked if they were going to produce more of the Girandoni air rifles, I was told by one of the gun makers that they were off to other new projects. However, I was also told that if a manufacturer wanted to start producing Girandoni replicas that one of theirs could be available for copying by that manufacturer.
So five dead kids isn't enough for you?
HIALEAH, Fla. (WSVN) -- A 3-month-old little girl is recovering at the hospital after she was accidentally shot with a BB gun near her eye.
The victim's parents arrived around 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Palmetto General Hospital after their 3-month-old baby was accidentally shot.
Hialeah Crime Scene Investigators reviewed everything the young parents told police.
Rescuers airlifted the little girl from Palmetto General to Jackson Memorial Hospital. Her parents stayed behind as police questioned them. "Doctors felt it was necessary for the child to be transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital," said Hialeah Police Sgt. Eddie Rodriguez.
Hialeah Police said the father placed his BB gun down on a table inside their home in the Lago Grande community. The father said the gun accidentally went off and hit the little girl above the eye. "Once the parents arrived at the hospital, there was already an off-duty officer there that saw the child's injury. Some of the people that worked at the hospital thought it was necessary for a police to pass by and conduct an investigation," said Rodriguez.
Police said it was an accident, and the young couple panicked. The parents will not be charged.
The Department of Children and Families is investigating this case as part of standard protocol when a child is injured in any situation.
The child is expected to be OK.
