    Some fellers here mentioned it being bow season. A lot of hunting going on or getting ready to go hunting. What is the process for slugging your muzzle loader anyway?

    You might call some of those people that have all that night equipment that go out in search of Bigfoot. They could probably give a hundred and fourteen reasons for those lights floating across your porch.

    Yes Mimosa wood has some qualifications for making BP such as fast growing soft wood. Green or dead it snaps in two easily. It may turn out to be too "dirty" to use. I am curious but alas, archery deer season is here and I will not have time to...

    Right on NoZombies I will add a suggestion as far as a tool. Use a big nail or similar piece of steel and grind it on the point to look like the firing pin. Then use it to punch a cavity centered in a copper rod that you can spin, then add some...
