I mostly read arguments on the forum

I load my ball with the sprue backwards in my Traditions Kentucky, over a load of 4fg, with a patch lubed with Bore Butter to season the bore, then blow down the barrel after the shot. When I get home I knock out the pins and remove the barrel for cleaning.

IN-COMING!!!!

I read 99% non fiction, mostly wars, from the Zulu wars to Desert Storm. My book collection is large with a lot of them from the 30s and 40s. I'm at a point where I just re-read some of my older books now and again. A modern author I've been enjoying lately is Nathaniel Philbrick with some good books on the Rev. War.

I try to read everything I can about the F&I War. I thought the book The Crucible of War by Fed Anderson was going to be dry history but it wasn't!
I was hooked quickly and found the best description of the time I ever read.

I just started listening to the audiobook version the other day while at work, and I have to agree it’s far more intriguing than I initially expected.

I found a very old copy of "Crow Killer". The original journal account that the movie "Jeremiah Johnson" was based upon at a flea market. Really a wonderful story. I have not ever found a reprint, but if you find a copy, it well worth the few hours of your time it takes to read it.

"Theodore Roosevelt on Hunting" is collection of his journals during his worldwide adventures and is also fascinating and sometimes funny.

"Man Eaters of Tsavo" is the true journal account that the movie "The Ghost and the Darkness" was based upon. Another riveting account and well worth the few hours it takes to read.

Just a few that you will enjoy.
never read the book.i have watched the movie several times

I could fill the bed of a PU with books I've hauled off, given away, thrown away, etc. No more! I have an Amazon Prime account and the Amazon Pad and I do all my reading on the pad! No books to worry with. Many reads are absolutely free of charge and lots of good reading of all types available through the Prime account!
