    New ink

    Got some memorial ink to honor my boy, Odin. The paw is the same size as his and the nail imprints are the same. It was copied from a paw impression after he passed away. In the toes it reads "O-D-I-N"

    Most versatile gun..

    In my opinion, for the woodsman, bushcrafter, bushranger, prepper etc, is the single shot, break-action 12 gauge shotgun. Slugs, the various types of shot, flares, rocks (in times of desperation) smokeless powder or black powder, and with inserts, smaller gauge shells, pistol and rimfire...

    Bipartisan gun control

    If you're 21 and under you're still a second class citizen when it comes to your rights. Also, I don't like the Communist News Network but here it is https://www.cnn.com/2022/06/12/politics/senate-gun-safety-agreement/index.html

    Just finished my first week at LBC and he has AR parts just rusting and collecting dust... I asked Les if he'd sell and he said no! It's really good stuff too!

    Oil care

    I'm a big fan of self reliance and I don't like using a lot of harmful chemicals. A lot (not all) of leather care products usually have some kind of petroleum in them so I went looking for an animal based formula and I found one. Would anyone be interested? I'm not selling the stuff because 2 of...

    I want to build a musket

    I want to build my own smoothbore musket and am curious about barrel material. What would be safe to use as a barrel as far as steel type? Mild (commonly called welding) steel? stainless? Hardenable only? I've read iron was used at one point but I'm not sure what kind they were meaning. Advice...

    Make your own percussion caps?

    Does or has anyone made their own percussion caps with this kit (below) or a similar method? Is it more cost effective and worth one's time over buying and shipping the caps? On a similar note, what about making your black powder for for muzzleloaders from pyrotechnics kits...

    I want a musket

    My favorite era in all of history is colonial America and in particular the mid 18th century to the 1830s. Rifles are more American than apple pie and while a musket isn't a rifle it's still part of the history. I am currently building a Kentucky/Pennsylvania long rifle from a Traditions but...

    Need some scope suggestions

    As well as rings or rail mount etc. So as I've said in a different post, my new .350 legend bolt action (Savage Axis II) is gonna be a dedicated kitchen filler (hopefully!) And I've never used scopes and don't know much about them so I need some suggestions as to a quality-ish scope (around...

    New deer rifle

    I just bought my FIRST rifle dedicated to putting food in the table. Savage Axis II in .350 legend. I was gonna pick between this and a 450 bushmaster and the 350 won out in large part to ammo costs. Never learned how to shoot a bolt action so now I'm gonna learn. Gun should be here in a few...
