    I figure it's time to get a few more pictures going on this thread, not enough black powder porn going on these days. IMG_0373[1].JPG

    Grand son touching off the .40 cal Tennessee rifle. I've converted it to flint since this picture but I don't have any pictures of it after the conversion.

    .54 caliber Hawken rifle I built in 2010, grand daughter 'helped' me build it when she was about two or so, I never have found the missing original trigger guard or lock bolt washer. ;)

    Grand daughter trying on that Hawken she "helped" me with on for size with Gramps showing her how it works, she did end up putting a couple of light loads down range, it was too heavy for her to hold off hand but she did pretty good with it from the bench with a 25 grain load under a patched round ball.

    Latest project, .45-70 Gemmer styled Sharps, it ain't a front stuffer but it does burn black powder and makes a lot of smoke. ;)
