Yeah it was fun. I just introduced the friend who shot the video to blackpowder shooting about a month ago and now he's hooked. We've been making a couple trips to the range every week.

Yeah I've been playing around with this stuff since back in the early 70's. I shoot about 50 lbs of BP in a years time. :bigtup: Go ahead and fire away with questions about your rifle.

Yeah that was my friends 71 year old mother who was visiting him from back east. She had never fired a gun in her life and the first one she picked was a .44 caliber Percussion revolver. She liked shooting my little .22 Ruger Single Six.

Doc
That rifle is an LSI Puma a reproduction of an 1892 Winchester the caliber is .45 Colt the load is a 255 gr RNFP big lube bullet pushed along by 37 gr of FFFg Goex Blackpowder. The pistols are a Remington New Model Army .44 in my right hand and a Colt 1860 Army .44 in my left hand. The shotgun is an Interstate Arms 12 gauge exposed hammer coachgun.
