Yeah, it does seem a lot friendlier here right from the start. The different format of the software will take a little "getting used to", but I think I can manage. I don't hang out on the Net continuously as some do but I can always try my hand at question answering. I've been shooting black powder since 1963 (muzzleloader and BP cartridge rifle) and I really like CAS. A lot of folks know me by my "real" SASS alias Dakota Doc Martin, SASS #21774. But, when Chiz made me disappear a few years ago after claiming I was "commercial" due to my posts touting Big Ed's goodies... I adopted this new handle for online useage. So as to not confuse anyone with too many aliases, I decided to just stay with the Hombre Grande name. Besides... I am somewhat huge, much like my good buddy and "brudder" Big Ed.
I've been doing the **** 'n Crockett Muzzleloaders website since way before Al Gore invented the Internet. :-D You might like to stop by there and take a look at some of my guns. I'm pretty well proud of my custom Shiloh Sharps. As soon as spring gets to the Northern Plains (mid-summer for most of you), I plan to get out there and shoot it some more. I'm zeroed at 100, 200 and 300 yards. I just need to get the 600 yard zero and I'm good to go for NRA BP paper punching. We are also setting up for BP Metallic Silhouette so I've had a set of practice targets made to give that a try. And, for a purely fun shooting experience, I had a set of 1/5 scale metallic silhouettes made to shoot at 1/5 the distance with my new Winchester 1885 Low Wall .22 LR. I'm going to try to interest some of the guys in having a "long range" .22 shoot as a side match.
So, I'll stop in now and then to see how things are going. I don't normally go into this much blither all at once so you don't have to worry about getting me started. :grin:
