I work as a manager for a bar/tavern/rest. at nights. something like applebee or tgif. So around 2am this morning I am with the die hards , not really drunk but not really sober bunch. we were talking about 3 things.
1. that my wife had sold my firearms while i was deployed to the lovely afghan paradise. Apparently my 15 year old girl found the combo to the safe and my wife caught her with them, they were unloaded but it scared my wife , so she sold them. she can do that as she had power of attorney. she saved the money and gave it to me when I came back.
2.the high mountain timberland that I bought, its remoteness and that I was going up there to build a type ofgreen homestead type of thing. It is very remote and the place I picked is dead in the middle of the 12 thousand acre tract I purchased and full of everything, mountain lion, nearly every kind of bear, bob cat wolf and the entire gambit, and the need to not go with out a shooter iron
3.BLACK POWDER ..now the 7 people that were left were 3 women and 4 men all police/sheriffs and they started telling me to take the money that I had received from the sale of the previous firearms and go all black powder and buy either replicas of original pistols , rifles and shotguns, with any conversion available separate or 'MODERN' versions of the same.
here is the problem I do not know muck about black powder as it applies to a firearm. explosives, yes thanks to the government training, they said that there are muzzle loaders, that you can buy that you can buy a conversion for it later buy changing the barrels. I told them that they were full of poo doo. But , again what do I know.
so here is what I thought, as I am going to be at this place for months at a time, they did convince me to go with a black powder system.
I would like 2 modern rifles/muzzle loaders
1 modern pistol
1 shout gun also modern
1 very accurate long rifle, one that I might be able to get 100 or more yards from, preferably longer shots, with out problems
the replica pistols I had already been looking at
I want 2 matched sets with leather rigs[4 pistols]
1 shotgun with leather rig for horse
1 long rigle/rig
so any way can you guys and gals shed any light on the accuracy or ther statements about modern muzzle loaders.
2. can you recommend all steel rigs/non brass and the best brands and stores to purchase. I am going to need to purchase this by the end of the first week of january online or other. just give me all your advise
I have considered making a bid on this property in mexico but I am having a problem convincing my wife it would be ok herehttp://www.eaglestar.net/bxtn.html
