The R.E. Davis Company has no control over the manner in which its parts and components are used: therefore we can accept no responsibility for injury or damage arising from their use. We urge all who handle guns of any type to use good common sense. If you are not a member of one of the organizations which promotes the use of safety of muzzleloading guns, we would recommend that you become one. The National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association, P.O. Box 67, Friendship, IN., 47021, can provide you with the names of local clubs in your area.
