Used to shoot ML a lot but have been out of it the past few years. Had the gamut of percussion and flint rifles, Hawken style, TC Rengade and New Englander, and longrifles, mostly percussion but one flinter. Got rid of all of them except the TC Hawken, kept if I decided to go out after deer. I grew up in NE PA and joined the Army after college and spent 20 years seeing other parts of the US as well Korea and Germany. Retired at Fort McCoy in 92. Lived in WI from 91 until last year when I fled the cold and snow and moved to SE KY. Joined to enjoy the forums and hope to be able to contribute a little as well.
