Nice pic Grund. I have a Dixie .32cal squirell rifle much like the Pa. Long Rifle pictured. Shooting hogs with it is a ball!!

That's OK- I carry two guns in my gun case: an Armalite M15A2- and a .62 cal. Baker rifle. BOOOOM! Fire and smoke everywhere- gotta love it. Sweet shooting rifle, too. Military-style assault rifles of the two past centuries... sure wakes up the hunter types at my range :^)

95thFoot, From your name can I presume that you are a Rev War re-enactor? I run with the German Rgt. I posted my Bessie in an earlier post here: http://www.ar15.com:1111/forums/topic.html?id=1622#lastPost I missed 3 doe this season with her here in Pa. The first 2 were running full bore so I thought I would try. The 3rd was standing 48 paces away down a steep hill. I made the mistake of not shooting low. Even though I missed, I was back "there" for just a moment. Incredible! It has never happened before and has to be experienced. I am planning to build a Jaeger Rifle from http://www.trackofthewolf.com. I think I'll do better next year with that rifle. I also hammer (der Blaeckschmidt) at the Danl Boone Homestead on occasion and get to introduce a lot of non-shooters to my rifle and musket. We seem to get folks from Jersey and Maryland that come there.

>95thFoot, From your name can I presume that you are a Rev War re-enactor? I run with the German Rgt. You are correct, sir- I am a servant of the legal govt. and the forces of goodness, light and freedom, AKA Ye Redcoats :^), viz, as a member of HM40th Regt of Foot ( http://members.aol.com/HM40thfoot/ ) >I posted my Bessie in an earlier post here: http://www.ar15.com:1111/forums/topic.html?id=1622#lastPost As I always tell the public, "This is a military-style assault weapon- of the 18th century. With it, the British were able to conquer most of the known world." THAT gets some interesting responses.... >I missed 3 doe this season with her here in Pa.

Check also with GGGodwin- they get NICE handmade Jaeger rifles from Juergen Kreckel. >I think I'll do better next year with that rifle.

My wife, who is Scottish, was there, and won a nice handmade wrought iron takedown kit for a Brown Bess in a wooden case, at an auction or raffle there. The 'smith explained to her a lot about it. I still use it, every time I maintain the Bess.

Are you referring to the Line event? I was not hammering, fortunately I was bangin! There was a smith there from another Continental unit. I do not know of any other hammerers in the Regt. I am the medic that broke ranks to render aid to the occupation soldier overcome with heat near the Smithy. BTW, are you a part of the British Occupation this Summer at CW?
