Default Shot the sidekick

I have a sidekick I purchased for my now deceased father in law many years ago. When he passed, I got it back. Anyway, I took it out today with the unmentionable breech plug in 7/8, blackhorn 209 harvestor crush rib sabot and xtp 240 grain bullets. Triple 7 primers and a Bushnell banner 3x9x40 scope. At 75 yards it was just as accurate as ever. It put a smile on my face. After I got home, I gave it a thorough cleaning and loaded it in my truck and delivered it to my daughter. I told her the story of how it was a Father's day gift for her grandfather. That brought a tear to my eye. Ling story short, she and I are going to the range Saturday so she can shoot her sidekick and learn about muzzle-loading and get it ready for this fall
