I shot my first 54 caliber black powder rifle yesterday.
Okay, you got me - I shot my first any caliber black powder rifle yesterday.
What a wonder!
The only way I can see we won the revolutionary war was that the other side also had to do the same tedious measuring, pouring, packing, capping stuff before you could shoot ONE shot. It would have required much more patience than I possess.
I missed my target (I was a bit high), but I'm already certain Matt doesn't have it sighted in right, because Chance was a bit high as well. After all that rig-a-ma-roll it took to get a bullet (or miniature cannon as it seems to me) loaded, you'd think I could at least hit the target!
Oh well, better luck next time.
