    Nice Hawken.

    I had a .58 custom built Hawken years ago and I still miss it.

    Thanks. Dude up in Indiana built it from scratch. It's a .54, kinda wish now I'd gone with a .58.

    Looks like that deer got plenty dead with your .54. I won't ask what's in that Coke bottle...

    I like hunting with front feeders. I do not use the modern rifles that are fired with Perc. caps. I shoot flinters .:D

    I'd like to get a flinter but the powder to feed it with is too hard to get.

    I cant even get real bp locally. Yeah, I know you can get it in five pound lots online but that's still more than I can handle buying at one time.

    The powder you use for a main charge will always work in the flash pan. The new vented flintlocks work better with 4f but will work with any black powder.:)

    nice score and don't feel bad, my truck looks very similar. Empty shells, old fruit, shot up cans and propane cylinders, spare tire, chains, etc etc... haahaha

    I just wish I could get a damn doe tag out here, next to impossible...
