Newbie from Georgia
« on: January 30, 2017, 05:32:55 PM »
Hey guys!

Thanks for the add. I've been into BP weapons for a while, mostly collecting. I do "War Between the States" authentic campaigning as Western Theatre Infantry. So, I've mostly shot muskets (with blanks of course). But, my true love is pistols. My most recent purchase is a High Standard Griswold and Gunnison reproduction. I found this site while researching info on that pistol.

I do want to shoot more of the pistols, and have tinkered with making my own cartridges. I would like to cast my own bullets and make my own gun powder, but, I don't think I've got time now to go down that road. Maybe, when I retire.

If anyone is in GA and wants to get together and shoot, let me know !

I'm near Canton, Ga.

Welcome from Wisconsin. We love to see pictures, so feel free to post your G&G, preferably through an image hosting site. That just makes it quick and easy for us to see the photos. And yeah, there are those of us that shoot muzzleloading long guns too.
