Welcome aboard, our new friend.
Tell us a bit about the shooting sports in your homeland, especially muzzleloading.  Is it difficult to get black powder?

Thank you guys,
Only a minority of shooters, shoot black powder over here. Also all guns here require a permit or gun license. I'm 66 now, started re-enactment at 24 and became in love with the old guns some time later on.
Whe only can shoot at gun ranges.
But is possible, black powder whe find here is mostly Swiss powder,
Over the years I shot matchlock, flintlock, percussion and also black powder breech loaders
Been in the nineties 4 times in the US, mostly Friendship, but visiting also historical places and attended also few Mlra rendez-vous
That it so what in short
God bless you all
