I guess I'm ANOTHER new Kentucky recruit!
« on: November 05, 2017, 01:53:04 PM »
Just got activated today.  Long time shooter of percussion revolvers, although it's been a kind of on-again/off-again relationship.  But, you know what?  With percussion revolvers there is ALWAYS something new to try and new to learn.

My latest adventure?  Aging the finish on my pair of 1860s, and getting seriously into combustible paper cartridges.

I'm retiring at the end of December, so I foresee a lot of range time refining my techniques and making smoke.

  Combustible cartridges are one of my interests also, and look forward to hearing about your work with them TP.

Welcome from Wisconsin; keep us in the loop as you work up your paper cartridges. Pictures are nice too. L@J
