Hello all. Been a member for a while but haven't gotten around to posting anything yet. Just lurking and learning from you fine folks. I got my first muzzleloader when I was around 12, and now in my 20s, I have developed a passion for them. I currently own only 4, but I'm sure that number will increase with time. I have a Traditions Springfield Hawken .50, which was my first. Also have a Lyman GPR .50 that I recently refinished the stock on. A CVA Mountain pistol .50 that I built from a kit. And just recently purchased a Traditions Crockett rifle .32 for going after squirrels, rabbits, and such. I looked forward to the knowledge I'll gain from y'all.

Welcome to the forum.
I thought you might be interested in going to this event. I am sure you will have a good time and might even want to join in the shooting.
Here is a copy of the cover letter and a list of matches. They are fun to shoot in.
If you are not familiar with the terminology in the "SIGHTS" column the "AMS" means Any Metallic Sight. Peep sights in other words.
