Life is hard its harder if you are stupid
Welcome to the fire, great to see new members as its been a little quiet lately. I'm very confident you will fully enjoy this new adventure called traditional muzzleloading. I know I have the bug!
Welcome to the campfire, Walking Bear 1954. There are plenty of knowledgeable BP guys around the fire that are happy to answer your questions. This is a good place to start down the traditional muzzleloader path.
*Young guys should hang out with old guys; old guys know stuff.*
Welcome to the fire Walking Bear and Rupe! Nice folks here, so grab some coffee and enjoy the brotherhood.
Welcome to the fire ! Nothing like hunting with a good Flintlock!
Howdy Walking Bear;
I put in close to 30 years in law enforcement. I was a pistol and shotgun instructor. I think I was 5 years old when Dad let me shoot a .32 revolver for the first time. Been a hunter since I was 10. I tried hunting with a bow and arrows for several years and finally decided that it wasn't for me. Borrowed an original 1861 Springfield rifled musket and killed a buck with it. That was 30 some years ago, and since then I hunt almost exclusively with traditional muzzleloaders. Even built a few myself.
Once that old blackpowder bug bites you good and hard, you are not likely to get over it.
There are a good bunch of guys here. Ask questions and you should get some good answers.
Know what you believe in. Fight for your beliefs. Never compromise away your rights.
