    To sign or NOT to sign, that is the question?

    I sign what I make. It may be small and inconspicuous, but it's there. I also put the year because when I'm replicating 18th century ( especially on my powder horns and bags) I don't want them mistaken for the Antique they replicate. Also, we put allot of work into our crafts So.... My opinion...

    .36 or .45

    I actually kill squirrels every year with my. 50 and have killed plenty with a .45 before I had something smaller. I'm not worried about hitting them in the head or shoulders. Most of the meat is in the back legs anyway. Seems to be those that have never hunted with a .45 stating how they aren't...

    How common were the "Squirrel Calibers" before the 1800s?

    I will look it up later but my memory tells me that the smaller calibers came with the disappearance of big game in the Appalachian mountain range between 1820 & ACW

    Fowler or Fusil?

    You need to hold both styles and go from there. I don't like the way that the French guns fit me. Because of that, I won't buy or build one. Without touching them and shouldering each of them you cannot make an educated choice that your going to be happy with. Once you know which style you want...
