    Hi
    Not much into the BP thing yet.
    I bought a T/C Black Diamond 2 years back for deer hunting.
    I got tired of missing out on some nice deer. It seems the 1st week of black powder season I would always see a deer about 70 - 100 yards out while sitting in the tree stand with my bow and arrows. Now I got a gun and don't see any deer.
    OOPs-digressing......
    I have always liked the looks of the Kentucky and Pennsyvania muzzle loaders, so...
    I just bought a Traditions kit Kentucky Rifle.
    It is taking a lot of work. None of the parts match and holes are drilled out of alignment, etc.
    When complete I think it will be pretty nice.
    I will put on a picture when done.
    Any comments.

    I'm a little surprised that the kit is that far out of quality. I've built several kits and always found them to be of good quality. I think the CVA kits are about the best bang-for-the-buck (sorry, couldn't resist that pun. :D )

    Yeah...PICS

    almost complete

    Well I got that Kentucky rifle kit together finally.
    It really didn't come out too bad--if I say so myself.
    Now I'll have to take it back apart and finish the stock and shine the brass and blue/oil the steel.
    Then put it back together again.
    I should be able to complete the project in a week or so.
    I'll post pics when done.

    Fun, isn't it? :D Get it all cleaned up and take some pics. Then you can take it out and get it dirty. :D:D:D
