    Thanks for posting the site, lots of interesting reading. I have a few early copies but I'm not sure if I had to request them, and I lost track of the contact. This was before I had a computer!

    mike will be sending me all new issue copies and they'll always be available to view and/or download on the www.bpgang.com forum.

    honestly, every shooter should have a sharps or roller in their safe, along with a flintlock smoothie or rifle. then you'll have the 18th and 19th century firearms covered. though quite different, both will be enjoyable guns that can be made accurate and fun to shoot. there's also the aesthetics of owning and using something that was a part of our country's history.

    You, Sir are a scoundrel!
    Shame on you for posting all that gun porn. Do you not realize that all them pictures of the them purty rifles make young and old men alike LUST, LUST I tell you, after those purty things!! Who can resist those blue steel line, color case harden receivers, and that Beautiful walnut wood.
    Folks have to pay rent and house mortgages, and you go post things of this nature.
    It is enough to make a man get all weak kneed and spend money that he doesn't have.
    SHAME on you!

    Those "Flinchrocks" always kick my butt. I had to go to the percussion era to be able to outsmart the gun........."One has to be smarter than their equipment" So, I went to dumber equipment.
    A gun in hand is worth two cops on the phone.
