    Optics Planet

    Ok 1st, yes I know Optics Planet, has vary little if any Black Powder items. But they have a lot of bags, cases, cleaning jags and other general shooting items that bleed over into our Black Powder world. I have ordered from them for years and always been happy. But from what I can tell they...

    It seems odd that I want a gully washer rain. . . but I do.

    We have been under a stage one or stage two fire ban for most of the summer. The Pine Gulch fire (139,007 acres ) is just 8 or 10 miles from here. To give you an idea, stage two you can't even smoke outside. So I haven't shot anything in weeks & haven't shot Muzzle Loader in months! Thank God...

    Small game loops on bags

    I am adding two (maybe 3) bags to my equipment, so that I will have one bag for each of my primary Rifles. I saw the bag in the photo below and thought the small game loops (At least that's what I think they are) would be great to have on the bag for my new .32 Cal Flintlock. Are they HC on...

    the new Type of ad's ?

    last night I noticed a new kind of ad, it's the one that follows you along the right margin. I know the forum needs to fund it's self, and ads are part of that. But this new type of ad is disruptive in the extreme. As I was writing a response last night whenever the ad refreshed (like every...

    I have a bear tag, but in Colorado no bait no dogs, :( So this year I resorted to trail cams for the 1st time. There are two big bear in the basin I'm going to hunt, I am in hopes that the trail cams will help me pattern what bear is feeding in what berry patch.

    Raw Beeswax use

    I was talking with a honey seller about getting local Beeswax, he said he had loads but hadn't had time to process any. Then he told me he would let me have a bunch for a few bucks if I wanted to process it myself. Anyone doing this? I watched some videos and it seems messy but not hard to do...

    Ruger Old Army 7.5" Holster fit

    As I look for a holster for my new to me ROA I am seeing a lot of holsters that say something like "FITS Ruger Blackhawk 44/45 Cal 7.5" but few that say "fits Ruger Old army" It was my understanding that ROAs are the same size (or almost) as the Blackhawk. BUT I'm not sure. Any thoughts? Is...

    Capt Jonathan R. Davis

    I had not heard of Capt Jonathan R. Davis, and just read of his December 29th 1854 fight in which he "killed 11 men with two revolvers and a knife" It sounds . . . well hard to believe. Has anyone found any research on this man?

    Well guys, Wheel locks aren't in my Wheelhouse :haha: , but as this was found in my backyard (well about 3-4 miles from where I was Bear hunting this year and maybe 30 miles from where I sit now) I thought I would bring it to your attention. " A pistol part found in a Mesa County excavation...
