    500 Yards, Stock 1:48 Twist TC Renegade .50 Cal

    Considering the lack of mechanical and metallurgical quality of the flintlocks they made, the over all was probably the same for the entire line..

    500 Yards, Stock 1:48 Twist TC Renegade .50 Cal

    That"s why every one here has to replace the TC frizzens with Lyman or just gets am L&R replacement lock. and why TC's warranty is no longer any good. "Their GGGRREEAAT!!!" LOL

    500 Yards, Stock 1:48 Twist TC Renegade .50 Cal

    That is such bull! TC flintlocks were such crap that warranty claims cost TC a fortune. They kept replacing frizzens and locks, eventually had to alter the geometry of the flint locks for a better design, which did not fix the problem. IF TC is so great, why do they no longer honor their...

    What you said and what you meant are now apparently two different things.

    500 Yards, Stock 1:48 Twist TC Renegade .50 Cal

    I have shot enough BPCR to know the effort that goes into shooting long distances with black powder and bullets. The pictures show it was not a "stock" gun as was described. If that representation was off what else was "off".

    500 Yards, Stock 1:48 Twist TC Renegade .50 Cal

    First how many shots do you need to fir before you actually hit the gong three times and declare a group? Excellent shooting to one person is garbage to another. The number of true stock TC guns that won anything at Friendship is counted on maybe 2 hands and a foot. By stock, I mean standard...

    500 Yards, Stock 1:48 Twist TC Renegade .50 Cal

    What does a custom shop gun have to do with their run of the mill "stock" production garbage quality? Don't know what they might have done to the lint locks at the custom shop, but the stock flint locks were about on par with Italian garbage locks. Cheap mild crappy steel that had to be...

    500 Yards, Stock 1:48 Twist TC Renegade .50 Cal

    Most TC barrels were not rifled or crowned uniformly enough for such accuracy. My TC Hawken had one groove that was barely a scratch and the flint locks were not worth crap. And lets see a ten shot group..

    Yet another question that has me baffled . . .

    I suppose if you put your guns away dripping with 30 weight, muzzle down is a good idea. Never put them away that way or stored them any way but muzzle up and NEVER had a problem with oil in the breech. On a recent range trip is saw a guy start his patched ball and then drop 5 drops of some...

    Black walnuts

    After getting the husks off and aging the nuts for a couple months, my father would freeze them. He would take a frozen black walnut and place it point up on the anvil of his workbench vise and hit it just right with a light hammer and he could get whole nut meats out of many of them. I don't...

    Apple pie filling (Zucchini)

    I remember reading about a town where getting rid of extra summer squash was like a town wide practical joke and prankster event. Mayor came out to his car to find a few bushel in his car. A minister found a wall of zucchini across his kitchen porch, etc. One fellow found his sidewalk had...

    NMLRA fighting

    And that is part of the problem. people join for the benefits and programs and let the drudgery of "business" to the same old few. My Lion's Club has a rotation and every one serves their turn as director, President, etc. I have been through the rotation as has every one else. I will be...

    NMLRA fighting

    Most service clubs and others are having problems coping with the modern age and technology compared to the good old boy way that was good for so many years. There are gov't regulations now, inspections, fees and costs. The old out house with a couple loose floor boards is now a major...

    NMLRA fighting

    A service club I belong to, tried to replace their ancient picnic pavilion. We had people willing to donate materials and a contractor willing to pay empl9oyees who volunteered to help us build it. Insurance company wanted blue prints and materials list and code inspector's approval before...

    Did they all have patchboxes?

    The only original guns I ever owned that could be dated to the late 1700's, were devoid of patch boxes. Which is probably why I was able to afford them. Gun collectors who see a period style patch box suddenly add thousands to the price. Both had rather severe Roman nose style butt stocks...

    volunteer vegetables and squash

    My daughter had a pet pig that lived with our sheep. Thought it was a sheep. Well last early last November, a farm stand owner offered her a truck load of free pumpkins and squash. She brought that stuff home and parceled it out to the pig and his fellow sheep. This year we have...

    Apple pie filling (Zucchini)

    My ex wife made zucchini cookies, muffins, bread and cake. I couldn't get past the bits of green goo in the stuff. I can't imagine the seeds in a mock apple pie. Years ago, I saw a recipe for a mock apple pie that used crackers. We just use the ninja method of getting rid of excess...
