Hi Gents, thanks for having me here!

Names Stu, after a 16 year career in the Army (Infantry) i now work as an Armourer/Propman for a well known time travelling tv show with a Scottish flavour...

Despite being a lifelong shooter and hunter this has been my introduction into the world of black powder and flintlocks and i am developing a not so mild obsession with this, and all things 1757-1773 which is the time period we are "working in" just now.

So what started as "just a job" has me making loading boards, making powder horns look "better" and have just ordered a load of leather and parts to start stitching up some sheaths and bags etc.

I will no doubt be picking peoples brains for relevant knowledge down the line,

Oh and already you guys have me fixing to import a Kibler kit once i work out the legal requirements!

Cheers guys.

Looking forward to seeing your work and hopefully hearing some details about working props for such a show.

Welcome from Arkansas, the keystone state of the south, in the U.S. You'll find a randy, rollicking, cadre of black powder addicts here, ready to share experience and skill. Good on ye getting a Kibler. Geo.
