..................And I need to print some of those silhouette targets and go see if I can shoot the beak of a bird or maybe put a hole in Mike Fink's "hat".

Welcome Sharp Stick!
Man! we'uns here just love it when ya talk like that!

As John said previously, "Welcome to the dark side"....this is a sport / hobby that gets under your skin, kinda like a wild and very mad virus, it affects the mind, the thinking processes, and you will develop a hunger for more information, but it's an affliction that you will learn to love as you grow with it, and it certainly don't take all that long to come about.

Many of us old timers have been involved in this sport for the better part of our lives and enjoyed every minute of it....it's a lifestyle you can't beat, not even with a 'sharp stick'.

We truly appreciate the fact that you have 'picked-up' a few pointers since you've been with us, because that's what we are all about .

You will find the Membership of the TMA to be the most caring and supportive folks in the world....period!

Welcome!

Uncle Russ...

Thanks for all the welcomes!
I found this website back in April and I've been lurking ever since. Reading it every day and enjoy all the sage advice and camaraderie. To reintroduce myself I'll repeat some of what I first put up back in April.

A few weeks months ago my son invited me to help him at the Mogollon Mountain Man Rendezvous. I pulled out all my old mountain man regalia from a previous rendezvous, tried it on. I was looking in the mirror and something was missing.  A smokepole!  Bought a kit and put together a Traditions Mountain Rifle. Spent 4 days at the rendezvous.  It's quite an event. 800+ young men ages 14-15 (Varsity Scouts) dressed up as mountain men and running around with knives and tomahawks. All kinds of mountain man related activities with black powder muzzleloader shooting one of the most popular.

Now that I have my muzzleloader I'm trying to find the time and place to shoot it and info on how to do it properly and safely.  I can just picture myself out in the desert all alone with a rifle that just went to pieces on the first shot  :P  That's what brought me to TMA.   And what a find!  Tons of info here. Already found links to local groups. I'm sure I'll find some willing to give advice  ;).        [ I did find someone locally to give me great advice and shot the rifle for the first time. Now I'm trying to find time to finish sighting it in, i.e., gotta do some filing on that extra tall front sight. ]

I'm from Mesa Arizona. I like shooting. And playing mountain man. And now I'm old enough to not care and just laugh at the looks I get walking into a convenience store with all my regalia on. And when I've grown my beard out for 6 months and have knives and tomahawks tucked in in my belt and a smokepole in my hands the kids don't call me Santa.  :laffing  I'll post pictures when I figure out how to do it.  I've taken a few shots with black powder before with other people's rifles and pistol's. Now I'm looking forward to seeing how well mine shoots.


Since I posted that, I've added to my BP equipment and I've got a patch knife in the works to be followed by a shooting bag. And I need to print some of those silhouette targets and go see if I can shoot the beak of a bird or maybe put a hole in Mike Fink's "hat".
