    Uncasville is nice. Used to go to scout camp there.

    Bare Ball Shooting Smooth Bore

    I know it is not what you are saying. I'm saying some of us don't care what the N-SSA rules define it as. Most people consider it bare ball if no patch or paper cartridge is used. If nothing is wrapped around the ball, it would seem pretty bare.

    Bare Ball Shooting Smooth Bore

    Maybe some aren't concerned with N-SSA rules. Seems any load without something around the ball could be considered a "bare" ball. Doesn't make people dopes who don't comply with those rules.

    62 cal ball groups

    I don't know why, it is counterintuitive after all, but, I seem to find my smoothbore accuracy to be better a little looser than a rifle would like.

    Squirrels beware???

    Connecticut Black Powder Shooters

    Agreed. Both CT. and RI. are small. No one, and no place, here is really all that far. Inconvenient sometimes maybe, sometimes we lack direct routes, but not far. I used to shoot at Bradford gun club once a month but their club politics got rid of the events I was attending and tried to make...

    Connecticut Black Powder Shooters

    Please do keep us posted on this idea. I bounce between the Bristol/Plainville area and Colebrook/Riverton depending on work schedule. I do travel out to the Baltic/Norwich area quite a bit in the summer to shoot unmentionables.
