Gday folks, man how things have changed on here, im not even sure i am in the right place, a complete new format since i last dropped in. I see there are still a few of the old bunch tapping away here.

A few questions for those here, is Kawasker, and our south african contingent still about?

And now for the clincher, how is our old mate Randy (Gunrunner) going, i cant find anything about him.

My situation is still the same with Sue and her Alzheimers, the condition has deteriorated some since i last posted on here, she takes up most of my time being unable to care for herself at all. We now have 4 six hour days care per week, which has made things a lot easier for me. however i am still not able to go anywhere without her, so my shooting trips away have had to take a back seat,
Anyhow folks keep on keepin on i will drop in from time to time.

That looks good, man.
Y'all can't build a fire on the ground where you live?
Darn rules and regulations Nav. That’s what I get for living amongst people.

I took a tour of the Makers Mark distillery about 3 years ago. Petty cool place located right next to a small stream. The clear colored Makers is the stuff that will kick your butt--much higher in proof than what you can normally buy locally. I have only seen the clear colored Makers in Kentucky so far.
I may have to make a trip to Kentucky to get some. Once I stumbled onto Makers 46, I was hooked. I bet that was a great our to take.

well, I have always wanted a Hawken rifle.....and I plan on doing one. but I always wanted to hunt squirrels with a muzzle loading shotgun.
Could you take a 45 cal hawken and rebore it to a smooth bore 50 cal. Then you could shoot both shot and round balls out of it. Just a thought.

I went on several distillery tours with the wife when my son was stationed at Ft. Knox. All of them were fun and informative. There are a LOT of distilleries in the Elizabethtown/Ft. Knox area---you couldn't go to see all of them without spending about a month there.

All is well Gus.
Things have changed a lot here.
Most of the others chime in from time to time.
Haven’t heard much about gunrunner myself.

Sure glad to see ole Whiskers posting, Andres (Kawaskar) is doing ok and Gunrunner is still laid up from a bad accident from a couple years ago. But he's still kicking and is a grandpa. imagine that!

Makers Mark 46 is good stuff, I drink it on the rocks also. I don’t want anything messing with the taste. I’ll get some more shortly, but for now I have a couple of bottles of less desirable whiskey and bourbon I acquired to drink.

@Pereira I passed on a flintlock 32 caliber CVA the other day. He wanted close to $600 for it, but it sure was nice.

Yeah, I’ve wanted a flintlock for a while. I just don’t see very many around here, mainly just percussions.
