Ten is a nice round number.
The End ...........maybe  ::)
I disagree. Ten is what I would call "a good start".

Very cool, Mike. What's "more cool" is your hands-on review and excellent close-up pix of the inside and out. Well done, sir! (7&

In the open scene.credits for "The Virginian" series. as they are playing the theme and rolling the starring credits, the camera is focusing on the actors. As James Drury rounds the corner on his horse, you can see the fresh tire tracks in the dirt to the right of the screen from the filming vehicle.

Dave, bet you are "laughing all the way to the bank" with your junk throw-away brasser! ;)
What sort of loads are you shooting?

For me, it's more about time management and money. It costs $30.00 per day, regardless if 5 minutes or 5 hours, to use the BP range along with a 45 minute drive. Add to that the fact that most weekends the wife and I are babysitting my two granddaughters (6 and 3 mo.) (both son and daughter-in-law work) and the fact that my wife is somewhat disabled due to arthritis, and running off the the range on a Saturday for 4 or 5 hours seems sort of...selfish. I know there will come a time when I will be able to go anytime I please.

I had an 1851 brasser in .44, only used Pyro and .451 ball over 15-18 gr.
It surprised me how nice a shooter it was. Reached out 50 yards plus and easy recoil.

Hmm...wonder what happened to it? ;)

Being a fan of brassers in their proper context, that picture gave me a big ol' smile!

Shooting BP has become a rather sparse event these days. I quell the urges by reloading and shooting smokeless and once in a while buying a BP revolver. The tides will shift and I'll get back out there, but for now I'm glad to have a place like this to keep the fires burning.
