good yer in! there's a huge collective knowledge of all black powder arms on the site, ready and willing to help everyone out, any time!

Good luck and ejoy the new forum just the same.
there is nothing difficult about using black powder. if you register, we can help you get to understand that the "holy black" is quite an easy powder to use, to clean up after, and will have lower and safer working pressures than any smokeless powder. black powder is not superior to smokeless powder, nor vice-versa. each have their plus and minuses. get to know each and be more informed for what each can do for you, then decide.
Its really great this Forum started.Been shooting BP for close to 40 years,owned many guns ,now down to my 2 keepers .Both custom jobs an Early full stock .58 cal flintlock Hawken and an early Beck completely decked out Kentucky,.54 cal flintlock.I make most of my accoutrements from Buffalo engraved powder horns to shooting pouches,loading blocks etc.I,ve always felt Flintlocks and trad bows go hand in hand.Hell who would need more.The largest Whitetail and Mulie Iève ever shot were with true BP guns.
