Hello everyone, I am Bryan and I hail from southwest Ohio, and have been an avid muzzleloader for over 20 years. I regularly attend the national shoots in Friendship Indiana which isn't all that far away from me. I usually do dress in pre-1840 period clothing when I am there, and predominately shoot flintlock guns. Up to know, I have owned only production firearms, and am now looking into getting a custom made rifle, not only to take to Friendship, but to do small game hunting with as well. I am glad I found this forum, and am happy to be a member, and look forward to gleaning even more knowledge and information from all of the wisdom here.
