Welcome to the campfire, Mike. You're from the land of H. P. Lovecraft who haunted the streets of Providence to gather inspiration for his stories. Make yourself at home.

Hi Mike,

Welcome to the fire. You will find very friendly helpful people here. I've been by the fire a short time but already learned a lot. Good luck on your Black Powder journey!

Welcome to the fire. The closer the fire you sit, the warmer it gets. Get in close and enjoy the friendship.

Load fast and aim slow.

Hey Mike, We're almost neighbors but my camp is just a bit to the west of yours. Even so, we can enjoy the same Campfire, for sure. Make yourself welcome and let us know which way your stick floats. Shoot sharp's the word, Mike

Many thanks to all who have welcomed me to the campfire !!!
Appreciate the comments and have picked up some mighty good tips.
I am shooting a T/C hawken,50 cal, percussion.
Last time out a friend gave me some shooting patches from a sheet ( 180 thread count)
Soaked in olive oil, they worked out real good !!!!
Ended up hittin 9 out of 10 in a woods walk.
Since then, folks been talken about "balistol oil mixed with melted bore butter" ??????

I usually stick with what works,but any comments on this mix ?????

Thanks Folks!

MikeV
