Duck hunting with a Pedersoli muzzleloader and steel shot120 Views
"I had used some larger pieces of driftwood and some bailing twine to tie together a fairly solid frame for a blind, to which I tied a hundred or so willow saplings to build a fairly comfortable and roomy blind. That blind just happened to be located at the downriver point of a small island in the river. The chute that actually made it an "island" is about 3/4-mile in length, and most of the upstream section is so shallow that you can wade across without anything more than a regular...

We had our fingers crossed for all the shooters participating at the 26th MLAIC World Championships in Granada from 28th September - 5th October. Such a beautiful place to be.

What makes a percussion revolver shoot straight?114 Views
Did you ever wonder what makes a percussion revolver shoot straight? What is the difference between a cheap and a more expensive repro? Well, here are the answer you are looking for. When I decided to start blackpowder shooting, I knew I want a percussion revolver. All my experienced shooter friends told me to start with a single shot percussion pistol or rifle to learn the basics, but I guess blackpowder shooting isn't really about logical decisions so I bought my first 1858 New Model Army...
