I am new here, don't know why I've never joined this forum but happy I did. I live in upsate new York about 10 miles from pa and nj. I hunt and shoot among with other outdoor activities. I am 28 and have been shooting muzzleloaders since I was little . But never quite got big in to them. I've been out of work so a few hawkens and a renegade where sold plus some other rifles. But still have a numrich Hopkins and Allen underhammer with a 15ga smooth bore barrel on it. A what's sometimes called a monkey gun, it's a mz 410 smooth bore. Plus just a cheap t/c inline I gave $25 for. I have a1868 trapdoor Springfield in 50-70 that was cut down many years ago, hope to get that out to shoot soon. I also like shooting black powder in old sxs shotguns. So hope to talk to some people and have a good time. Troy.
