    November 2022 Postal Match

    Garypl and I along with some friends shot at this target today. Surprisingly the weather was very nice and we had a fine time. Those turkeys did look like brown specks over my sights though. I shot my Crockett 32 today and have finally found a load that worked very well. Really I just added...

    October Postal Match

    Garypl and I shot this target today. Nice crisp morning, although I had a hard time seeing those pumpkins. To my surprise, I actually hit a couple. Today was a good day.

    Lyman .50 cal Great Plains pistol

    I have been shooting my Lyman Great Plains pistol in .50 caliber a good bit lately, in between range trips with a percussion revolver. I have to say, the vast majority of recreational shooting I do these days is with some type of blackpowder firearm. I decided to try my hand at making some...

    Shooting the percussion revolvers a lot lately

    I have been shooting some of my percussion revolvers more for the past few months. I find shooting the black powder guns (especially the revolvers) more fun than my modern firearms. I have also acquired a couple of new ones in the past few weeks that are very enjoyable. The video is of...

    Mystery guns

    I purchased these two percussion pistols years ago in a pawn shop from $25.00 for the pair. The longer barreled pistol is, I think, a 22 caliber. The shorter barreled gun is a 32 caliber and very crude. The lock has no fly and seems poorly made to me. Both barrels appear to have either been...

    Opinions on Carbine size

    Thank you, I own a T/C flintlock Pennsylvania Hunter in 50 caliber with a 1/66 twist. I was unaware they made a carbine. I will need to keep my eyes open for one of the carbines.

    12 Ga Pedersoli shotgun and the Sky Chief Turkey load

    Hi Guys, Skychief and Brit, I did try some loads with just thin over powder and over shot cards. They did not do as well as the Skychief loading method, although I may try something different next time. For now this will work very well for my upcoming hunt. Nobade, Old Hawkeye...

    12 Ga Pedersoli shotgun and the Sky Chief Turkey load

    I thought I would post my results with my shotgun using the SkyChief load. I will be using this gun in a few weeks on a turkey hunt and took it out today to see how well it would pattern. The shotgun is a Pedersoli double barrel percussion shotgun purchased from another forum member about a...

    I agree with Lonewalker and 11 corps. We are grateful for your work at setting up the matches. I vote we simply move on and you don't stress yourself over December. The March target looks like fun.
