Just waiting for the intruder to use the “ unfare odds” defense against the home owner for pulling out a gun in a hatchet fight!

Handguns & Holsters / Re: Black Powder Shooting - Powder Selections

I have found Dixie Gun Works ot be goo, and also Track of the Wolf has many items that interest me - in fact, too many. I found pour spouts in various sizes for powder flasks that I will probably get the various calibers.

The Pietta "Griswald" was ordered from Dixie Gun Works; however I caught it on sale. They do seem high in prices for BP firearms, as compared to others.

I just ordered a scraper from Midway, but there was no clue as to caliber.  I'll try it for $5.

I went to my local Bass Pro Shop this morning after range duty. I checked with them last night for Pyrodex RS and they said that it was "low stock." I am learning that when you find this stuff (black powder, percussion caps, etc.) to get it while you can - and 2 cans came home with me. Now, they have no stock.  ;D

I also scored some Remington #10 and #11 percussion caps. I am taking a chance on these as some reports say that they are not as good as the CCI percussion caps. 

Like life, it's all one grand experiment, but unlike life, I can come out of this one alive.  ::)

...I am also trying to find a 'scraper" that will work at the breech plug end of the barrel...


Dixie Gun Works is your best blackpowder friend.


You want a scraper? They've got scrapers. And worms, another necessity. And everything else, for that matter. It's like the old Herters' catalog, or maybe Sears Roebuck and Monkey Ward combined.

Scrapers? Click on: https://www.dixiegunworks.com/index/page/category/category_id/593/category_chain/578,346,593/name/Rods%2C+Brushes+%26+Patches/

The last time I logged on to Facebook it was December 2012.

It took a couple more years after that to get them to stop sending Friend Requests and other messages.

Ugh. FB sucks.
