    Fedex put it on my porch Friday.
    It looks like next weekend I will be my first chance to get it to the shooting range. Any help/advice is much appreciated. Very nice of you to offer!
    Finding the most accurate load for the gun is my first goal. I am also very interested in putting a peep sight on it.

    Both nice towns.
    New Braunfels is about 15 minutes down IH35 from my place. We go there regularly. We enjoy Gruene and Clearsprings. I get my sausage making supplies at Granzin's.
    You ever come down to see the relatives, bring your smoke pole and we'll have some fun.

    Will do. Used to have a family ranch in HoneyCreek. They changed the name of the town, (and I forget what it is), but it was right next door to HoneyCreek Natural Wildlife Area. We sold it. So, we lost the ranch, but the $1.7 million takes the sting off it.

    My dad's father had a ranch on the border of the Cibolo. He sold it many years ago for $1 million. Division between all the children and grandchildren ate that up pretty quickly.

    My dad is buried behind the church in Selma. I miss the riverwalk and Anhalt.

    Howdy from the Red River Valley, and welcome to black powder... the smoke is addictive.
