I'm getting real close to retirement and pondering how to spend some of the time so I decided to pick up something I really haven't touched since 1975. A group of us built Navy Arms Brown Bess kits which cost $212 with the bayonet. My uncle ran a fife and drum group out of NJ so we became reenactors, then college, then the USAF. Sometime in the mid 80"s I built a Dixie left handed rifle and now plan a rifle build with my son so I can hand down to him what my uncle taught me so many decades ago.

Super Kool - and welcome to the forums.
I see your Uncle is from the Jersey area, sorry, every family has a black sheep somewhere.
But you are in TEXAS - :thumb::horseback:🤠
What part of our great State of Texas are you residing in?
I'm in the Denton County area.

Yes, I have steel targets out to 900+ yards, and I have a 20 yard wide by 30 yard long shooting bay with a plate rack, Texas star, dueling tree, and paper target stands... I also have plans to cut trails for a woods walk (but not done yet)... I have really only fired cap-and-ball percussion revolvers (and now a Lyman single-shot Plains Pistol as well), but I would like for someone to show me how to properly fire multiple shots in my first black powder rifle (Miroku Zouave)...
