    Comments at the range

    I have heard most of the comments put forth here, and always always offer up the opportunity for the neophytes to try it out. The best non-comment was from a German work colleague whom I took to the range with his wife to shoot a Garand and some WW2 German rifles from my collection. For a little...

    What did you do today

    Received word from DGW that the items I ordered have been shipped. True to their word of a 3-4 week order fulfillment timeline. Patience pays, there was never any need to call and ask where my order is. Good folks of Union City.

    What did you do today

    I began filing and sanding the trigger guard on my Lyman .54 Plains Pistol kit. I'll shine it knowing full well the patina it will assume over time, but it has to be done. Was distracted by the barrel lying there and gently draw-filed and sanded the raised lettering...mustn't have that. While...

    What was your first Muzzleloader?

    Mine was a High Standard Griswald and Gunnison that I picked up at local farm supply store in the town where I attended college. I loved shooting it and learned to appreciate the technology of the time. I eventually shot that brass frame loose.

    Help identifying pistol

    This surely appears to be ivory. The stock has a similar patina to ones that can be seen at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam: Wapens en scheepsmodellen - Kunstwerken - Rijksstudio - Rijksmuseum

    Removing nipples

    Agreed! I engineered crab boats in AK and every thread on every fastener got the 'Seize'.

    Removing nipples

    Same here, every time. For cleaning rifles, removal of the nipple aids in the draw of cleaning solution from the bucket up the barrel. I have a can of copper Never-Seize (laying around the shop forever) that I use a little dab on the threads for ease of disassembly after the next range time..

    I made a range box lets see some more.

    same here! I just stumbled across a Lufkin machinist tool box given to me in trade for electrical work. I believe it will do nicely.

    What is ALR again? I have tried to makes sense of the acronym but I gots nuthin'.

    I made a range box lets see some more.

    Great idea Bob. I have recently been addressing this problem of organization, having everything (powder, caps, ball and bullet, tools, cleaning accessories) jammed into a Flambeau tackle box. The box gets heavier with each acquisition (of different caliber) and I am afraid one of these days the...

    Your best deal acquiring a muzzleloader, either trade or purchase

    Those are great pistols, tough and accurate.

    Your best deal acquiring a muzzleloader, either trade or purchase

    My best deal was a brand new 2 band Parker Hale Enfield hanging on a back wall at The White Elephant in Spokane. I couldn't believe my luck at the $198 price. 2 years later I finally got the opportunity to fire it but to my dismay I could not see where the Minie was hitting. Out of utter...

    CLOSED Browning Mountain Rifle .54

    Man, I passed up a Browning in a sporting goods store in Cordova AK right before the salmon season started. I needed that first season opener and a delivery before I could make the purchase. Alas, after that first opener and I had salmon proceeds in my fist, I returned to the store but it was...

    Decked a big boar yesterday with GPH .54

    Good info and it makes sense. That explains why the 2 hogs my son and I harvested did not stink. Both were hit in the neck behind the ears...they never had a chance to react. They were taken with a 6mm Rem and a 30.06. But I believe it is time use my GPR in 54 for the next harvest. Thanks for...

    Help me find a kit like this description

    Thanks, Grenadier, for suggesting Track of the Wolf. I slipped over and grabbed one of the Lyman pistol kits in .54 as a companion to my Great Plains rifle in .54. I currently have a CVA 50 cal Mountain Pistol (as a companion to a TC Hawken in .50) but have never been fond of the hardwood stock...

    T/C Hawken - To Build or Not To Build

    Your story brought back a memory from 44 yrs ago when my college roommate and I bought T/C Hawken kits in Spring for the upcoming fall muzzle loader elk season in WA. I went through a half a dozen kits at the store in Spokane to select the best stock available. We produced some nice work on both...
