  1. One of my favorite subjects. Whenever I hear folks claim how bad black powder is on firearms, I always ask if that was truly the case, then why do we have so many Revolution and Civil War original muskets, pistols, and canons throughout the country? I'm pretty sure the powder, cleaning or maintenance from that era was not as refined or complete as it is today. I don't usually get an answer. I myself, use on occasion, an 1865 Burnside for Plainsman. I get more attention with that, than my shooting abilities! As mentioned above, use what you got and have a blast!! I've noticed your in the Memphis, TN area. Research N-SSA in your area. If you want information on black powder, these folks are the ones to talk to. They do nothing but black powder using Civil War firearms. They might try and recruit you too. They shoot muskets, carbines and pistols, but also canons and motars!! By the way, they are not shooting blanks, but real lead at breakable targets. I added the last part, "at breakable targets", because, I've been asked about that.
  2. I think it would be legal in CA. It’s a black powder muzzle stuffer!! https://americanguncraft.com/product/diablo-break-open-12-gauge-pistol-black-grips/

  4. YEA HAW!!!! Another Plainsman Shooter!!!!
  5. I've always kept my firearms in the vehicle. Have never been asked and I won't lie to them if I was. It's just that I won't give them any addition information they don't need to know about.
  6. Does being mounted on 2X4's, then C-Clamped to my workmate count?? Both my Lee Turret and Shotgun presses are mounted this way.
  7. That was always the joke when I had to run a engines on fighters after a lot of maintenance was done. "If it catches fire, remember!! Forms first, then fire extinguisher! If asked why forms were used, just answer that it was the closest thing available and you were just trying to beat the flames down!!"
  8. Same here. Just not too sure if I'm going to C&B or cartridge the pistols. I'm going to start loading cartridges this weekend and see how they do. Rifle choice will depend on the outcome. If I end up C&B, then the rifle will most likely be my 1860 Henry. Shotgun will be hammered. What are you thinking about using?
  9. Let me re-phrase this. No we don't reload EVERY week, but when we do, we average 350-700 rounds a week. Boy, folks really are getting cabin fever!!
  10. I have an old Lee Turret press as well, but we, Limey and I, still use a hand primer to seat primers. Slow, but you will know/feel if a primer isn't seating well long before you get the feedback through the handle. Limey and I share the loading process when we load 38's, which is what she shoots. She'll clean, size and deprime and place in plastic bags or shotgun boxes. I'll bell the mouth and place them in loading boxes. She then primes them and gives them back to me. I'll load powder and seat the bullet. She'll then crimp them. Slow, but we stay ahead of shooting match requirements and we get to do them as we can. Normally, we'll load anywhere between 350-700 rounds a week. If the weather is really nasty, we'll get a lot more done. Oh yea, we usually use Federals. Winchesters are our next go to primer, then whatever we can get our hands on. Another suggestion is to have several recipes with different powders too, just in case things go crazy and powder gets hard to come by again.
  11. Could always think about Northeast Texas. Specifically, Hopkins County / Sulphur Springs area. You are less than 1 1/2 hours from Texas Ten Horns(1st weekend of the month) in Leanard, Barlands Bar 3(3rd weekend) near Clarksville. Just shy of 2 hours is Texas Toublemakers(1st Saturday) near Brownsburo. A few others in the area with little more driving. Cost of living is relatively low. Mild-ish winters, but some what hot summers. Very few Tornadoes in the area too(helps to be just outside Tornado Alley).
  12. Congratulations and Congratulations!!!
  13. My dad worked as a carpenter on FT Eutis in Virginia. He always knew when hunting season opened on base by watching the deer on base. No shooting was allowed within a certain distance from base housing. All through the year, he wouldn't see a single deer, but one day, the area around base housing was loaded with them. That day always turned out to be the opening day of hunting season.
