Welcome from a former coal-cracker from Tamaqua, now residing in Montgomery County, Texas.
Lots of great info here from great folks.
Plus, a few snide comments from certain folks that don't know any better.
Welcome from Centre County. Don’t know where you live but check out and join the Keystone Federation of Black Powder Shooters. They will provide a book that has shoots listed throughout the state. Attend one and you will learn a lot just by paying attention
