    February 2017, Contest topic: Black Powder Paper Patching ...and W,P,H

    February 2017
    Black Powder Paper Patching ...and Wheelguns, Pistols and Handcannons

    New contest format. New rules. See link for rules.
    http://castboolits.gunloads.com/show...90#post2797390

    I am using the individual forum titles as the monthly topics (going from the top down), starting with Black Powder Paper Patching, but since that isn't one of the most common forums, I'm going to include the last forum, Wheelguns, Pistols and Handcannons, which is very common, so we can kick off this first contest with lots of activity.

    In regards to shooting safety.Until you are ready to fire, keep your booger hook off the bang switch.

    I love the lighting "highlights" on the barrel...it makes the bluing look super high gloss and almost black.

    FYI, to all casual viewers, I have changed the rules...and am allowing comments in this thread, intermixed with the submissions. So let's here some conversation.

    Should be easy ..........Ol Deuce

    If I could learn to post pictures I think this would be fun. I wonder how many computer illiterate like me just can't get a photo in this forum?
    Maybe simple lesson on posting photo here in layman's term might help your posting.

    Cavalry Holster is Rock Island 1913. Spitfire compass (WW2, hey I had to have something that didn't belong in that WW1 era!) USMC belt and original .45 ACP ammo in a clip stamped 11 11 FA (Nov 1911, from Frankford Arsenal) All sitting on a leather WW2 Pilots Album.

    Big mak's picture is an great example on how to make a photo tell a story by bringing in relevant props.
    Great work!

    Well, not many props here but this old Ruger in .32 mag. has been with me on my trapline for thirty years now. It's like a dear old friend.
