Newly made in Kansas, still in the white. This demonstrates the sort of craftsmanship we have. Crowned muzzle, novel muzzle loader/breach loader combination. Use for ball or shot.

Many advance orders were placed by the Flatwater crowd by FFL holders.

It was dangerous to be down on the course this weekend.

We shot-up two bags of potatoes on Saturday. During Saturday night's feast there was a large platter of baked potatoes, each wrapped in aluminum foil. The thought that entered my twisted mind? "Mmmm, FMJ ammo for the potato cannon!" There is something strangely rewarding about launching vegetables 200-yards down range.

The first shots, targeting the three Springfield newbies on station #1, was just priceless! They had not been present when the behemoth from Kansas had arrived and the surprise registering on their faces when a projectile of an unknown nature was delivered without notice to within about 10 feet of the station's bench was memorable even at 200 yards.

No, the bed was full of tools and the patterning plate assembly. Several asked about it, so I'll try next year.

It was patterned last year. The wood stand is still down by Station 2.

That wood backdrop is from two years ago and the firing of Rockie's cannon.

Well, if Hinck ever hit the course, he'd know it was there. :D

Rockie's cannon? Two years ago? The mind is the first thing to go.
