Weather not conducive to spending time at the range.  I might try Wednesday's old coot shoot; but it all depends on the temp.

............  did in fact kill my deer with it this very fall dressed in full 18TH Century attire and using period accroutrements.
Scooby, it would be nice to see some photographs of you in that attire, if possible

I did not take a picture of myself on this hunt. Of the couple that I did take, only one turned out. The others were blury. But I will show the one pic. It is not much, but shows the Virginia rifle, shot pouch, and haversack. On the ground is a pack that I made out of the hide. All of the meat is boned out and tucked neatly inside of the hide. The hide was laced up with a light weight rope and cinched tight. I then bound up the bundle with a heavier rope and left a long tail in which to grab onto. I could then hoist the bundle onto my shoulder blades with the extra rope hanging over one shoulder. Then I held the rope tight with one hand to keep the bundle snug against my shoulders and from sliding down my back during the hike out.

Thanks for the comments men.

Mazo, I too have a Beck that was copied from an original, but it has a straight profile Green Mountain barrel. It has some fine carving on it. It is no longer so pretty though because I used to hunt and woods run with it a lot.

Hawg, you are right. I have been fortunate when it comes to my gun collection.

HAWKEN50, I have been partial to the Early Virginia style as well. There are now four such types being carried by men that I run the woods with. And you are correct about the long wait with some builders. They have built up such a name for themselves that they are booked up for years.

Per the request of my friend who built this new rifle, I did in fact kill my deer with it this very fall dressed in full 18TH Century attire and using period accroutrements.
