    Hi,
    The sad news is that Phil Ackermann (Ackermann Arms Co.) died. I don't know any specifics about his death but the muzzleloading and living history communities just lost a major founding member and supporter. Phil was a curator of arms at the West Point Museum, made, restored, and sold 18th century military firearms as well as parts and supplies, and was an encyclopedic source of information. He will be missed.

    OMG :(:(:(
    He just helped me earlier this year to scrounge parts to restore a messed up Japanese Bess. A lovely guy, who was always lookin' out to secure scarse stuff for the historic folks.
    He will be missed.
