This just happened to me. My cousin is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to guns. Particularly muzzleloaders.he also has this phone that puts his texts on hold when he puts a call on hold. But the texts disappear. So we're having a conversation about something and he says hey, let me put you on hold, got a call.You know what I'm talking about.. You're at the range shooting BP or talking to a buddy at work about your muzzleloading hobby and you hear something stunningly inaccurate about muzzleloaders. Sometimes it's funny, other times frustrating..
I brought my rifles and revolvers with me to work yesterday so I could go straight to the range afterwards, so I showed them to a guy I work with on break. He looked at the rifles and said "Oh when you said you shoot Muzzleloaders I thought you meant the real ones they sell at Walmart." Another time my boss insisted a round ball couldn't kill a deer or even hit a target past 50 yards...
Anyway, I was just thinking about it and thought if I've heard several humorous misconceptions in the short time I've been in this hobby, then some of you veteran ML shooters have probably heard some doozies! I'd love to hear 'em! -Justin
I had to run so I just finished my thought with a text. I was still typing when he popped back on. The first words he saw was I'm hoping the new Walker will be worth the money. He goes off on a tare. You got a Walker? First or second model? Oh, you said New model, right? Not a real walker? Thought you were gonna call me before you bought something like that. Then he goes right into the rain man idiot savant ramblings of muzzle pressures, velocities and powder charges all befire I could say "Ed, I had my knees done, it's a four legged Walker! Lol
