    Dragoon "wedge" tight

    Hello all. I have a Colt 2nd Generation Dragoon that is beautiful, but the wedge is an absolute BEAR to get out and thus taking the barrel/cylinder off after shooting it is a pain. Any ideas? I haven't shot it all that much maybe it will loosen some under fire? Thanks!

    Game you have taken with a flintlock

    Lets see some of the game you have taken with a flinter. I can't contribute yet... All I have are a few pictures of some squirrels (Not that they don't count!) but I am hoping to add a Maine Black Bear to the list in August. Lets see what everyone has bagged!

    Loading ball

    Hello all. I have recently started using the Circle fly .025 thickness overshot wads for when I am shooting shot and I have been loving the performance. Is there any reason I could not use these to load ball? Maybe 2 on top of powder and 2 on top of the ball?

    Hey guys! Hope all is well. So I have been thinking of how I clean my flintlocks lately. I used to use all of these complex concotions and would spend well over an hour cleaning a certain gun. Now I rely almost exclusively on room temperature water mixed with a little bit of ballistol, and...

    Whats everyone’s favorite thing to eat that they hunt themselves? What is your recipe? I love everything but my favorite is probably wild hog tenderloin marinated in orange juice and honey. I also love “chicken-fried” Venison with white gravy
