Hey all,

Just wondering if there are any traditional black powder shooters here? I'm talking flintlock or percussion (I have nothing against in-line, have one myself). If there is anyone around Birmingham that likes to shoot black powder let me know.

Best,
Dave

I have a Lyman Great Plains in .50, haven't shot it in a while. I killed a lot of deer with a .54 bbl on it years ago.


I've spent most of the money I've made in my lifetime on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.....

I have a TC Hawken I'll be using this season. 50 round ball and real black. I owned a 54 Lyman trade rifle but it got recalled so I picked up the TC. I'd like to pick up a smoothbore flinter next but it may take awhile since I'd like to upgrade to a semi custom rifle. It can be addicting.

That Mon-Fri. 5 day Muzzy season is bout worthless.

I have a TC Hawken percussion and 2 Flintlocks, a CVA St Louis Hawken and a TC Firestorm. I also have a TC Encore that I have a .243 and 50 cal barrels. I hunted with the percussion Hawken last year instead of changing the barrel on the Encore. The season was so short that I didn't want to change barrels and check the scope on the Encore.

Where are y'all getting your black powder from if you're in the Birmingham area?

I've got a TC Hawken and a couple shotguns I shoot occasionally. Most of the time I mess with a 209x50 just because it is easier to clean up the aftermath shooting Blackhorn and it shoots ridiculously good.

Those inlines are worth it just for the convenience of cleaning.

Gave my inline to 'Huntress, and I've got 3 sidelocks, all .50's.

Yeah, the flintlocks take a bit more effort to get cleaned but they sure are fun when you pull one out at the range!

I have an old Traditions sidelock that I usually hunt with...it's more of a rough & tumble gun, so it ain't as pretty! smile

I'll go shoot with any of you guys whenever you want I've got more round balls than I know what to do with I've even been melting them back down into bars. The deal is you've got to clean my rifle when we are done that's why I don't shoot it. Hate cleaning it!

I hunt with a cva flintlock on wheeler refuge every year. Have killed a couple deer and pigs with it. I love them!


May not have killed anything, but always a good time

I have a 45 caliber flintlock Southern Mountain Rifle that I assembled from a Jim Kibler kit. It's the only gun I've hunted with the past 2 years.

I just picked up a used CVA no frills perfusion and plan to go to the Cahaba WMA range in the next couple weeks and shoot it to see if I can hit anything intentionally with it. Big learning curve coming. Spent two hours last night cleaning it up.

Perfusion is the passage of fluid through the circulatory system or lymphatic system to an organ or a tissue, usually referring to the delivery of blood to a capillary bed in tissue.

Percussion is the striking of one solid object with or against another with some degree of force.
Man the concussion caused by one f’n letter.
