I'd like to introduce myself as a fellow tradtionalist muzzloader and of the buckskining tendency I amm basically a rifleman but I do love any muzzleloader being partial to those of J&S hawken's variety and especially of large caliber,I do enjoy my flint .36 also
Welcome to the campfire, shootrj2003. Jump right in and join in the discussions. Glad you like the .36; I'm a fan of the little caliber, too. I'll also bet you've had some adventures with the big caliber you could relate.

Shoot, Oh! So you're the one... (G) Let me thank you most severely, it is nice to hear that someone likes my tales now and then. About Hawken rifles, I'm working on a story that might even get done this year about shooting traditional Hawken rifles. You might like to wait for that but for now enjoy the coffee and keep visiting this Campfire. Thanks again and Shoot sharp's the word, Mike
