    I've been buckskinning since the late '70's,and latley I've been doing more "Show and Tell's",so I've been refining my kit.

    I've alway's been a stickler for being proper in my kit's. Never criticle of others,and only say something when asked or if something is really out of place,then I just ask,"Why this or that",and leave it at that.

    So...here I go! It's now 1813. I was born in 1754. I saw service in the war for independance. Was a "Tinker",built furniture,clock's and gun's. Able to do darn near anything to make a "buck". I am now 59 years old and do a little market hunting supplying meat to town and fort. I shoot a Brown Bess musket I was allowed to keep after my service.

    Well,I tried to base most of my persona on events in my life. Easier to keep track of "who I am"

    I was born in 1954,the War for Independance is kinda close to Veit Nam in my real life,although I didn't serve(4H).

    I know this forum is for established persona's,what is the forum I'd use to get some help in refining my chosen time and situation?

    You would have been able to purchase an OUT OF SERVICE BESS at a modest price from your old milita unit or an agent for surplus arms , also of note many civilian muskets were made for sale in the Colonies , these were almost identical to the Kings Muskets of the times ( some were even originaly made with shorter barrels ) . :thumbsup: Often called Trade Muskets they were of quite good quality and made to provide years of good service , they should not be cofused with trade muskets made for natives .

    What? 1954? I thought you were much older than that. :)

    All I know is I was born in 1781. Had to be to be my present age (55) in 1836 at the Alamo.

    Next year I'll be born in 1780, and if'n I'm still around in 2033 I'll be born in 1761. In fact if I live long enough I might even get to be a F&I War veteran :haha:
