    Welcome! (Despite my English family name, genetic research tells us we are mostly Scot, plus my father's grandmother was an Orkney Sinclair.)

    Kibler - field observations?

    Thank you for the wonderful photos. Though two months shy of my 83rd birthday, I am too crippled by osteoarthritis to ever again visit the back country, those pictures evoke many fond memories.

    Old,Grumpy and Still Kicking!

    Welcome! (I clean my MLs with hot soapy water, much the same as we did with our M-1 rifles during my Regular Army active-duty years, `1959-1962.)

    Removing the barrel on a hooked breech rifle for cleaning, yes or no??

    I always remove hooked-breech barrels for cleaning. Because I equipped all my T/C rifles with tang-mounted peep sights, I replaced the T/C mid-sights with their "primitive" bases, installed a Marble's or Lyman folding sight adjusted to the peep-sight's zero and flipped it up to confirm the zero...

    Taylor Uberti better than Uberti?

    Thank you for this criticism; it sent me -- as I said, I am a near lifelong student of history -- back to the books for a bit of a refresher; I last studied the American Revolution in the '70s and had forgotten about Jane McRae, about whom there are so many conflicting stories it is impossible...

    The Best Muzzleloading Movies

    Have to pick Master and Commander as my all-time favorite muzzle-loader-era film; think it a cinematic tragedy the miser-minded investors cancelled the intended sequel.
