Powder horn gift
« on: August 12, 2022, 08:11:44 AM »



I received this unexpected surprise in the mail yesterday. It was sent to me by a feller I bought a flintlock rifle off of a few years ago. He said he didn't hunt anymore and wanted this powder horn to have a good home. He had it for 35 years and said it was used when he got it. I hope to put it to good use this fall!

Darren gets beautiful powder horns in the mail, I get junk mail. You bet I'll be complaining to my local post office!!

Nice Horn, Darren!!
I'm  not  H/C or P/C or even a particularly  good shot but I have a hell of a good time!
