I agree on that. In many of the bitter winter scenes with the snow blowing and the wind whipping, he never seems to have a hat on. I also wonder why he was knee deep in an icy mountain stream in the winter trying to catch a trout?
To your point. I know a dirty bore impedes accuracy. However, I have read on here that you never hunt with a clean bore for your first shot and that PRB shoots better with a bore that has been shot through 1 or 2 times before hunting. I shoot a percussion. Any thoughts? Thanks Prof.
In my opinion, you want to make the gun look like it was USED and not OLD. The last thing I would want is for someone to see a gun I artificially aged and say "I bet if you restored that stock, it would look really great". The most important things is Restraint. When you see some of these guns...
Great point. I was also amazed how gorgeous Sycamore can be when it's cut right. Was wondering though if, because of its hardness, is maple more prone to cracking at the wrist than other woods especially with heavy loads and heavy projectiles?
