    Where are you located Tday? There are places to be found depending on where you are.

    Congrats on the new sparker too. Post up some pics if you can.

    Who's at Friendship? We're just about.4.spots North of the Memphis mafia cabin right on the road. Off and on rain has kept us off of the woods walk, but the primitive range was open.

    Between the weather and the fee hikes, it was not crowded at all. I found a nice old Scott & sons shotgun reasonably priced. And a very reasonably priced small caliber powder flask. LOL. Oh, and a lead hammer. To match my intellect.

    Got to have nice visit with cousin Carlton, away from lodge or a funeral, for a change. And spent a couple of great days with the fabulous Johnston boys, and their chef, Mark. Boy, do we eat good.

    So, anyone else here? How's your experience?

    You need a little flint knapping hammer and a screwdriver. Lots of places have a combo tool.
    You need a vent pick.
    You need a nice brass or steel ramrod, with a cleaning jag.
    You need a worm screw for pulling balls, and a wire patch screw.
    A breech scraper helps get the bottom corners of the barrel cleaned out.
    You need a pound bottle of 2 or 3 F black powder.
    You need a pound of 5 F.
    You need a powder flask, and a measure.
    You need a priming flask.
    You need a supply of balls, and patches.
    You need cleaning patches.
    You need a ball starter.
    Bore butter is the best for wiping down your rifle and oiling the bore between uses.
    A few spare flints is always a good idea.
    A bag to carry your powder, patches, ball, and tools is a must. It can be cloth or leather.
    I'm sure there's stuff I'm forgetting.
    Have fun!

    If anyone wants to see the 1860's, 51's etc in competition come out to Paradise Pass in Etna Green Aug 9-10-11. It's the Indiana Blackpowder Guild annual championship. 1860-1892 rifles, cap and cartridge handguns and double or lever shotguns. Side matches on Friday, main match on Saturday and Sunday. Shooting from 9:00am until noonish both days. I'll be shooting my Blackhawk .44s, an 1892 and a double gun. Full charges of APP in all. We may play with a Sharps or two also!

    Derp, just found this sticky. Yes we should get a separate sub room channel whatever.

    Ferreting out the black powder stuff from the modern cartridge is daunting and blackpowder and muzzleloading is valid deer hunting.
