rick,
it is good to hear from you.
when i started bp shooting it was partly to find the potential of these rifles, as well as learning loading and shooting techniques.
you were one of my inspirations, and i owe you a debt of gratitude for that.
are you still exploring round ball muzzle loaders?

Yes....I'm still shooting the PRB aka Patch Round Ball and enjoying same to the degree that I don't have to sit and do all the work that it takes to keep the Sharps going! Just can't sit that long anymore! These rifles are much more accurate than most people believe once the right combination of patch thickness and lube is found. My eyes are still great for seeing the irons and that is a blessing!

Good to hear from you!

Here's a .58 Caliber Dimick Rifle I have! Shoots really well!

well rick, you go where life takes you.
it is what you make of the cards you are dealt that counts.
and you sure seem to be living your life.

p.s.
that lovely big steel target of yours is a little wasted now on round ball guns.
