I'm from northern Utah, which is more or less the backyard of many a 1830s rendezvous. Been shooting black powder since '74 and did reenactment for about 25 years, until I lost a chunk of my hip to cancer. Now I just plunk targets and have fun. Glad to be here.

And Jaegermeister, I'll need to find some photos of what I shoot now, a Larry McCoy flintlock patterned after a rifle in the Museum of the Fur Trade, and a percussion rifle patterned after an 1860s Leman rifle. But I do have photos a friend recently sent of a Homer Dangler rifle, patterned after Peter Berry's rifles. The gun was built by Dangler, then scrolled and inlaid by Steve Fields, from Southern Indiana. It was a tack-driver and a beautiful piece, but after moving to Utah I thought it was too light, and too nice, to be banging around in the mountains. Sold it, and naturally now wish I hadn't, but it went to a good home. Not sure who that kid in the photos is, though he seems vaguely familiar.
