    Scouting?

    I hunt the same 2 old farms every year now and have local spots pretty well figured out. But one thing I did back when I started with this acreage was find a couple low spots (bottom, swamp, etc) where there's always bound to be a drainage ditch / little creek winding through that low area...

    Is it not cricket to have a Craftsman toolbox as a shooter's

    Exactly...but people will be sheep. And some of those same people with those sheep like attitudes are phonies / hypocrites...not uncommon to see posts about them having modern coolers / ice chests at their camps hidden inside something made to look like it came across a prairie in a covered...

    CA and the whole "lead ban"

    Another very important fact about the precision brass balls from this Manufacture is that they were extremely precise...tolerance variation was virtually non-existent. In addition, after recovering them from a trap box full of shredded rubber, there was zero change in dimensions on any axis, and...

    Correct...sounds like routine keyboard hunter theory.

    CA and the whole "lead ban"

    I only researched a couple companies that made precision balls, but that's what I recall as well...but my interest was finding a suitable size for big game hunting such as deer, etc, and the one that jumped out was the .5625" diameter for use in my .58cal. However, I had mentioned back then that...

    CA and the whole "lead ban"

    I researched, acquired, range tested, then took deer with solid brass balls in my .58cal a few years ago. Deadly accurate, worked perfectly, meets the requirement of having less than 1% lead in its make up, etc. Posted all the info + manufacturing info here for some CA citizen to coordinate...

    Is it not cricket to have a Craftsman toolbox as a shooter's

    Right...all these similar looking so-called "wooden range boxes" are no more pc than my plastic MTM Case Guard boxes are.

    Is it not cricket to have a Craftsman toolbox as a shooter's

    Ignore them...personally, I couldn't care less what other people think of how I approach my hobbies. Some other examples of "PC gear" I use at the range:

    And don't forget the used market...in my retirement now after 50+ years of hunting in several different states, the bloom is fading off the rose so to speak...already sold 2 beautiful Flintlocks at the first of the year... .40cal Late Lancaster and .58cal Early Virginia. Hunting / shooting...

    TVM Custom build

    No, I set up and take shots of every Flintlock I've either had built, or in the case of this one, bought used and refinished. This one is currently a .50cal Dickert that was originally built in Michigan...bought and refinished it while waiting for my own first build to be done...been an...

    TVM Custom build

    Back in the 2009-2010 timeframe my TVM builds averaged 6-7 months, well worth the wait. Beautiful / flawless hunting guns...have now accomplished my goal of taking every kind of game I normally took using modern guns, while using various Flintlock rifles & smoothbores instead, on multiple...
