I enjoyed the event. Will bring a gun of my own next time. We weren’t sure what Darius had planned . It was an introduction for new blackpowder shooters . He also has plans for a new range in the area and a club to follow. I came with a group from the Garland Ridgerunners near Warren PA.
Bought mine because i wanted a sharps. Have less than 100 rounds thru it. Fun to shoot but loading others At the muzzle is less labor intensive. Also have another of the same brand in 45-70. They are well made and nice to look at.
Going from one to four in two years is nothing. I ordered my Kibler and while waiting for delivery bought an un named flintlock. And just today bought a parker-hale which doesnt fit my collection. My wife gave up counting and doesn’t know i sold four this year to buy something else.
Got back to this toy Sunday. Was given a few rb at the match and tried them down the bore. Ball were for a 69 caliber. They fit the smooth section but stopped at the rifling ,upon seeing this i grabbed a .575 rb. It fell to the breach.
I think maybe a liner was installed at the smaller...
It seems that this thread was meant for laughs. Has anyone heard of using purple paint to mark a property for no hunting? I’m in PA and was told this is a real thing. What if you are color blind? A splash of paint seems stupid
I have always liked the 45 caliber. I have several in both ml and centerfire. I believe the push on a 50 cal has to do with what is available in the. Big box stores sure you can order most any size but the person first getting into the sport may limit access to stuff off the shelf.
