Thread: My Little Ones Shooting Black Powder

  1. Shooting black powder

    When I was in high school, I dated a girl whose father built Kentuicky long rifles from the ground up. He really created some works of art. I got to go out with him several times to test-fire new rifles before delivering them to the customers who ordered them. When you fire a black powder rifle, you wait for what seems like a hlaf hour for the smoke to clear to see if you hit the target. That was the real reson for the manual of arms for the muzzle loader, to be ready to fire as soon as you could see again. :D He told me you were not a black powder shooter until you A. loaded without powder, B. double loaded, and C. shot your ramrod. I am a certified black powder shooter, ROFLMAO. I just saw a muzzle loading rifle set at the local Wal-MArt for $205, and wish I could have afforded it. It was a modern looking rifle with a scope, that came with a supply of bullets and the other necessary stuff needed to fire it a certain number of times, and I assume some ideas on where to buy more bullets, percussion caps and powder, etc.

    congrats mom, black powder is fun to shoot a little more work but well worth it. there is nothing more enjoying than going out with kids and young adults and i can see you were all having a great time.

    Sounds like fun. I don't think I'll ever do it, but the way you describe it, it sounds cool!

    I'm not "certified" as I've only done "A".
