    Made the Kibler Leap

    Sunday I was working a bit on my rifle and I made a blunder. Lock bite is real. The flint got me right in the web of my palm. It's healing up fine but the shame still stings mightily. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

    New Flint Wallet and Ball Bag

    About $36, I think. It's pricey but it's quality stuff and 5 lbs will last me a long time. I'll be happy to have it.

    I received an email and a call just now from Pauline at Maine Powder House. She's received her shipment of black powder and my 5 pounds of Swiss 3F should be shipped within two weeks. Great news.

    Jim Kibler got it to me quickly

    I remember reading years ago that the Boys Militia of Williamsburg carried blue painted muskets. I've seen photos of them somewhere as well.
