    Hurricane outage

    Been off line since hurricane hit, centered on where I live in Baldwin County Alabama. Power just on hour ago, been kind of quiet except for the chain saws going. Went through 2 of mine so far, parts ordered, no damage to any of my structures, but lost all 50 or so of my 25 year old planted...

    The Journals of PATRICK GASS

    The Gass journal is one of the few surviving journals from a member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. This is a day, by day, by day, account. I extended reading it over several months as I think I didn't want it to end, however it did. If you are interested in the facts of daily life of the...

    Frontier Muzzleloading Forum Members "Rendezvous".

    Thought it would be interesting, that after all this virus mess is under some kind of control, that we could have a "gathering" or rendezvous for members. Probably someplace west or mid-west? Just a thought. AND, we could provide for checking in- firearms, knives, clubs, and shoulder "chips"...

    With a lot more home time than usual, barn, garden, yard ect. and finally caught up, decided to make separate pouches for each Muzzleloader I use hunting. Have a number of leather ones, mostly a little bigger than I need for just a couple shots, anyhow, saw several originals made with...

    Trapdoor Springfield project(s)

    the 50-70 has been sitting for a while in one of my gun safes, and have no excuse not to finish it now with semi-quarantine time on my hands and the garden going good. Anyhow the bore/rifling was real good, but the chamber for some reason was scratched enough case extraction was difficult. My...

    .38 conversion

    Making shot

    I learned to make shot while living in Alaska from a guy who shot league shoots with us and reloaded all his Trap and Skeet rounds with shot he made at home. After I moved south, he had a new "maker" sent to me. I haven't used it yet but as this Corona stuff has got me anchored to the farm...

    Labeling and such

    Just a quick note, with a little humor, my wife hollered out a while ago to "come into the kitchen, NOW!" So I did. Appears she pulled out what she thought was a jar of mayonnaise from back of the fridge, and went to spread it on a sandwich, noticing it wasn't "quit right" she called...
