    I don't think mine had anything to do with Paper Patch though, I misread the title when I posted them originally.
    but thank you!

    it's a double themed month.

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

    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

    Big Mak Has my Vote! His Photo set up was done very well and the story it told was more than a 1,000 words! "each photo is worth more than a 1,ooo words" Ol Deuce
