    Colt Patterson No.5

    A pretty interesting look into the history and development of the Colt Patterson No.5 pistol... They use a reproduction for obvious reasons, and pyrodex for demonstration purposes but it’s a really well done episode and looks to be the first in a new series. And while it’s outside the realm...

    Militia House?

    Anyone know what's going on with these guys? The last update said they were still moving and that was almost a year ago... They had some nice stuff that I would have liked to have ordered from, but at this point I'm ready to start looking elsewhere.

    SAR/DAR Members?

    Does it count if you're descended from a Hessian... ;-p

    Canadian Rangers and miitia

    It's been a while but I seem to remember that most of Rogers engagements against Marin, both offensive and defensive, began from ambush... That gives a significant advantage to those with the initiative until (and if) the one on the bad end of the ambush can rally or bring up re-enforcements to...

    smoothbore weight

    For what it’s worth, my Fusil-de-Chasse made from a TOW kit is pretty light and feels lighter due to its incredible balance.

    Rust prevention...

    So down here in Texas I've noticed the weather isn't kind to black powder guns. For the most part this is easy to mitigate. I over oil during cleaning and touch up metal as needed whenever rust starts to appear. That said, I don't want to be taking the barrel out of the stock on a regular basis...

    Wad thickness...

    So I got my fusil-de-Chasse out last week for the first time... The more I get to handle it, the more I love this gun. Anyway, I had meant to try and get a rudimentary idea of what it shot most accurately between different size balls, powder, and wads vs patching, but when I got to the range I...

    So here's a dumb question...

    So I recently got my .62 caliber/20ga Fusil and I need to order some ball before I get out to the range. I went on TOW today and realized they have the two (20ga and .62 cal) separated into different categories. 20ga has .600 round ball listed and .62 cal lists .610. I was going to get both and...

    Received my TVLLE Fusil!!!

    French TVLLE Fusil de Chasse in .62 cal/20ga. and stocked in oak. It was built off a Track of the Wolf kit for me by Larry Cruise, and I couldn’t be more pleased. I’d never handled a Fusil before this one and the first thing that struck me is how shockingly light this beautiful smoothbore is! It...

    Frontier on Netflix

    I really tried to like it... I made it all the way to the last episode of the first season and just couldn't bring myself to care enough to finish it.

    Sanitation and cleanliness in the 18th Century...

    This probably doesn't belong here, but I can't see another sub-forum where it would be better suited... So I got sent a link to a news clip about an, admittedly interesting, story about some yuppies who decided to leave the modern world behind and live in the forests of North Carolina. The...

    Fusil-de-Chasse question...

    What's 'barley corn shaped'?

    Fusil-de-Chasse question...

    Just a couple of quick questions in regards to the TVLLE Fusil-de-Chasse... 1) Historically, with steel accents being so common on these guns, would the front sight have been steel or brass? 2) Would the gun have been blued or browned, or would it have been finished bright and left to develop...

    Really disappointed in TOW customer service...

    Then why not just say so!? That at least is an answer, and a very acceptable and understandable one at that. The response I got reads more like 'I don't know what I'm talking about so I'm gonna blow smoke up your butt and hope you're too stupid to know any better'. Like I said, I've always had...

    Really disappointed in TOW customer service...

    Answering and being able to answer questions about products you sell is customer service... Beyond that it isn't that they didn't give me the answer I wanted, it's that they didn't give me an answer at all.

    Really disappointed in TOW customer service...

    Not in their overall service, just their reply to a question I had asked... I recently inquired about the difference in their 20ga barrels for their TULLE kit, specifically who made their non-Colerain barrel and what the practical differences were between it and the Colerain barrel. The response...

    How often were powderhorns left raw?

    We always see scrimshawed horns and it makes sense that these would be the ones most often preserved. However, I was thinking today and began to wonder if scrimshawed horns were really the norm or not? So out of curiosity, how often donyounthinknhorns were left blank? Do you think doing so was...
