A bit of an absence due to my dog passing away...
I'm rummaging around looking for my old gear and find a few pieces I forgot I had. Seems I was working on some horns that are now worm food :( so I'll have to replace those. I ordered some flints from TotW for my flinter and also got the Hawken in History book. I was pleased to see that I'm not just another Hawken groupie but more of a Half Stock groupie LOL. I was pleased to read up on the HS rifles in Muzzle Blasts and find I really just have an itch for half stocked rifles, maybe because I'm on the west coast and they seem to be popular with horse riders. While I'm not much into horses many of the places I shoot don't have long ranges. A short barrel with a big hole in it does wonders for me in my neck of the woods :)
One day I will begin work on a half stock .62 cal rifle... the trick is what to wrap around it... Most likely Iron and a cap lock but the though of a rock lock is very appealing :)
