    PBS Ken Burn's 'American Buffalo" (bison bison)

    Oh I don't disagree with the second part of your post, Especially regarding having the luxury to slowly reflect and study at your own pace. However, I was mostly directing my comments on not being able to put much faith in anything you see on television.

    Shoulder Tension

    A lot of good advice here as usual. I have been shooting flintlocks for 50+ years and was pretty good.
