    That is a nice link. All topics and advertisements are interesting.
    As a side, the wood block ad is neat.
    I would like to get my hands on a old time bottle of Hoppe's Nitro Powder Solvent No. 9.

    Charles Hinman (b.1849 Vermont) was living in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1882. By occupation he was a Chemist. He was a member of the US National Guard team vs British Rifle Volunteers in both the 1882 (Creedmoor) and 1883 (Wimbledon) matches.

    Nice article.

    Bruce, thanks for the heads-up on this one. I have now added to my Research Press web site, and also added some biographic data on Hinman... along with a bit of a puzzle on his score!
