A young and enthusiastic Italian shooter was so kind to share with us his expereinces with his first ever muzzleloading gun: a Pedersoli Gibbs .45 long range rifle. Here is his story of success: I am Gianluca Frison, 41 years old, I live at Enego, a small mountain village located on the Sette Comuni plateau (Vicenza).

Speedloaders of the Napoleonic times137 Views
Here is an interesting article about some special items of the elite troops of the K.K. Army. We like to think that most of the practical tools of blackpowder shooting and hunting were invented in the 20th century, while there are many ingenious items that were already in use many centuries ago. Here is one example: speed loading tubes of the Jäger troops. http://kapszli.hu/en/speedloaders-of-the-napoleonic-times/

Duck hunting with a Pedersoli muzzleloader and steel shot159 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...
