Whats in your closet?

Postby young Gun » Wed Dec 14, 2005 7:29 pm

Ok guys lets hear what you are shooting for a muzzle loader. I have few, two are in Hawkins. One in 45 cal and the other in 50 cal. I also have three inline two TCs and a black diamond. Two in 50 cal and one in 45 cal. I’m building a Pennsylvania long rifle. It will be a left handed flint lock. So what are you using for a smoke pole?

I too am a big muzzleloader fan. I build all my own, but they are all traditional. Flintlocks are my prefered choice, but I do deer hunt with a percussion .50 call Hawken style. My favorite caliber is .32 or my .62 cal smoothbore for bird and small game hunting. Below are a few pics.

This is my .32cal I finished last month.

This is my .62cal smoothbore I built over the summer.

This is my .50cal Hawken for deer hunting. I built this back in 1990.

As you can see I continued my tradition of posting as a guest up above:) I am currently in the middle of building 2 more long rifles. One is a .54cal Lancaster Pennsylvania and the second is a .50cal Virginia long rifle. Here a pic of my smoothbore and a squirrel I got earlier in the fall.

Here's my brother shooting it. Look closely at the embers falling in front of the barrel.

That's some nice rifles. I'm going to try to post a few picks of the work in progress of my gun here soon.
