    Lewis & Clark - Corps of Discovery

    And a very interesting read if I might add. The opening sequence of the Ken Burns documentary couldn't have worked out better it was a one-shot take. It was in the fall at the Weldon springs river access, due to the cool air and warm water there was a mist hanging on the river which worked out...

    Lewis & Clark - Corps of Discovery

    As a former member of the St Charles "Corps of Discovery" I can assure you, Stephan Ambrose was just as you imagine he was. We provided the boats for the filming of 'Undaunted Courage' and met Ambrose several times and found him to be extremely arrogant.

    I got an offer I couldn't refuse...

    I have the same rusting problem with the one I have and I'm considering going with a copper one of the same design.

    Legal powder amount

    You got the answer on the BP total under federal law 50lbs, substitutes are not included. But my question would be unless you're a cannoneer why in the world would you need 50lbs of powder?

    Possibles Bag pricing question

    I'm not sure about every state law but most of them allow the use and sale of commercially tanned pelts. Only endangered and limited take animals would be a problem and if they are properly tagged not even then.

    Possibles Bag pricing question

    If your's comes out as nice as the one in photo 1623468607 I'd say 300+ would be a fair price. There's a lot of time and labor in a bag like that plus the cost of the bobcat hide.

    12 gauge rifled slug out of Bess?

    I have shot those out of a original SXS 12 ga. shotgun and they worked pretty well, good enough to take a deer with.

    Can swabbing between shots encourage misfires?

    I guess the short answer is yes. I only swab every 3rd round with a slightly wet patch follow by a dry patch. I've had too many dry patches get stuck in the barrel not to use a little lube first.

    CLOSED Small priming horn

    Here are a couple of photos of the horn to this point, it will take me a few days to finish it. I don't know how you intend to carry the horn but I can solder a ring or staple to the end cape you can choose what works best for you. I would need 40.00 for the horn and that would include shipping.

    CLOSED Small priming horn

    If you can wait until tomorrow I've got one I'm in the process of making and I'll post some photos. You get the chance to sort of customize the finished product. It will hold about 2 -2 1/2 oz. of powder, have brass plug (end cap) rather then wood and use a plunger type discharge rather then a...

    Do you need a persona?

    When you first start out it's just to see if you like it or not. When I tried it 30 or so years ago I just wore cheap white painters pants, a sort of accurate long hunters shirt and a blank hat with a wide bream. If you decide you do like it you get more into it. Now I have buckskins...

    History correct?

    As already stated no plastics, aluminum or stainless steel. most knifes of the time had plain wooden or antler scales with no bolsters or cross guards. Think "Old Hickory" and "Dexter" and you'll have the idea.
